Has anyone noticed that the Clan Maclachan Highland Game directory has been moved to a another website site and is now unavailable?
Not sure if anyone might have some knowledge on what is going on, but it is a little concerning that such a wonderful resource is currently offline. Does anyone have an alternate site?
I am seriously thinking on creating a new website later this year for this purpose and possibly creating it in an XML standard. Either that or I might contact the people at the new site and see if they want some help. Shame that with the game season upon us there is no central resource.
I've sent an email to the COSCA to find out were they are with getting the Highland Clan data online.
In addition, I've also provided them with some suggestions about making the data available for free to all and in an easy format. I have even volunteered my services so as long as the data would be available to all.
I really think there is a need for a central location for festival and highland game data. Sort of a World Root location. Perhaps a central location for organizations to enter their data and then the data to be available in formats for websites. Such as XML or RSS or even just an API that could display events in your local region on a webpage.
If they are not interested in my help, I may develop this on my own as I am looking for a project (later this year) that I can design from scratch and develop using XHTML with an XML backend database.
