View Full Version : Go! Liverbirds Website Needs Your Help! Get Liverbird Spotting!
Hi there one and all,
I've recently began developing a new website called: Go! Liverbirds. The idea is to post images of every Liverbird where-ever they may be found. The idea came from the existing Liverbird and Coat of Arms Thread (http://www.yoliverpool.com/forum/showthread.php?3000-Liverbirds-and-Coat-of-Arms-Pictures) plus the recent Go! Lamb Banana and Go! Penguin initiatives. Locations will be categorised, for example Liverpool North, South, South Central etc.
What I would like from your good selves is for you to sign up and post your images of Liverbirds! Simplez.
Over the next few days, I will be fine tuning it and creating little guides to how to sign up and post pictures.
Have a look at progress so far and get Liverbird Spotting! Cheers,
Just an update, thaks for all your interest. I will post details of how you upload your pics very soon. In the meantime, pay a visit and I would like feedback please :)

Kev. I cant see the site anymore?
No Mate, unfortunately due to unforseen circumstances or whatever, my server that has Yo! on it was effected by something happening on Go! Liverbirds. That's what has caused the database errors on Yo! in the last few days.
Sorry about that, will try and sort another site for it soon.

Ok no probs.
I've been redigning the Go! Liverbird website over the last day and a bit and would like your help.
On the site it explains how to send your pics to me.
Cheers peeps :)
