Terms and Conditions

Conditions related to submission of material - effective 15 October 2003

We do not claim ownership of the materials that you provide (a "submission"), including feedback and suggestions, for review by the general public, or by the members of any public or private group. However, by making a submission you are granting us permission to use your submission in connection with the operation of WCR, including, without limitation, the right to:

We are under no obligation to post or use any submission you may provide and we have the sole discretion to remove any submission at any time.   By making a submission you warrant and represent that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to your submission including, without limitation, all the rights necessary for you to provide, post, upload or input the submission.  In cases where material is copied from another web site, we shall in every case make best endeavours to obtain the permission of the owner/copyright holder.

In practical terms, we will assume that you agree to publication of the images and text that you provide to us. You should let us know at the outset if you wish part of your submission and/or your name to be excluded from publication.  In the case of material that has already been published; on written request, we will:

Conditions related to material - prior to 15 October 2003

We cannot alter the fact that what is now on WCR has been 'published' and has been delivered into the public domain.  As well as being stored on our web server, many pages are cached in other servers and PC browsers across the world.

We have always believed, in good faith, that those people who made submissions (photographs/images and textual memories) were doing so in the full knowledge that the submissions would, or could, be published in full, or in part, on the WCR web site. However, if it is made clear that you were not aware of this, we will make whatever amendments or deletions that you wish.

If you did anticipate publication at the outset, but now wish to have your submission removed or amended, we will try to meet your wishes as far as we feel is possible, given the nature and context of the item(s) concerned.

Hints & Tips

    Windows XP and Vista users may be inflicted with 'helpful' warnings on some pages, along the lines of "To protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options..."  This is triggered by our use of scripts for things such as the drop-down menus on the Gallery main page.  To avoid the messages, and allow the scripts to run, please add WCR to your Browser's list of trusted sites.  In Internet Explorer:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  2. Click the Security tab, and then click Trusted sites.

  3. Click Sites.

  4. In the Add this Web site to the zone text box, type, and then click Add.

  5. Click OK to close the Internet Options windows.

    Are you an Virgin broadband user/sufferer?  When you access the web, instead of going direct to your target web page, Virgin will dish you out a copy of the page from the company's own 'cache' computer.  That copy could be hours, days, weeks or even (from someone's recent experience) months out of date!  They do it to keep down usage (bandwidth) of their own connection to the internet and it all comes down to money.  If you suspect you are viewing an old page, hold down the <CTRL> key and press <F5> to force an update.  We're investigating means to do this automatically for Virgin users, but it could take a while.  More information for the technical folk is on this web page.

    Your PC has a range of settings for 'screen resolution' i.e. the number of pixels (dots) that make up the picture on your monitor.  In many cases, new PCs are set by default to 800 (wide) by 600 (high), otherwise known as 800x600.  While this resolution is fine for most applications, an increasing number of web sites assume that visitors have the higher setting of 1024x768.  If you view these sites with 800x600 resolution you can only see content at the right-hand side of the page by using the horizontal scroll bar.

Your current resolution is . If you would like to change the resolution, follow the instructions below.

To change your resolution under Windows:

  1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then choose Control Panel. The Control Panel window will appear.

  2. Open the Display icon. The Display Properties window will appear.

  3. Select the Settings tab.

  4. Ensure the Desktop Area is set to 1024 by 768 pixels. Note: If it is available, press the Test button. If the screen appears blank, it will return to normal in 5 to 15 seconds. You will need to contact your computer vendor/manufacturer for assistance in changing the resolution setting.

  5. Choose the OK button. Note: You may be prompted to re-boot your computer. Choose the OK button to restart your computer.

To change your resolution on a Mac:

  1. From the Apple menu, select Control Panels.

  2. You will either have the option Monitors and Sound or Monitors.

  3. If the option is Monitors and Sound:

  • If the option is Monitors:

    • Ensure that the Show pull-down menu option is set to Recommended.

    • From the list of available resolutions, select the resolution you wish to use. Your screen resolution will change instantly.

    • Close the Monitors window.



    All links are in white bold text.  In Internet Explorer (not Netscape), they should change colour to red when your mouse pointer 'hovers' above the link text.

    Navigation of the site is intended to be as simple and uncluttered as possible, by using the main Contents List as an anchor.  On every page, your 'path' to the present page will be shown, and you can click on any of the higher (white) links to move back up the chain.  Easier to do than explain!  If you have difficulty, or encounter 'duff' links, please let us know and we'll try and help you out.



    Images are scaled for on-screen display (72 dots per inch), and are compressed to reduce loading time, so there has had to be a trade-off as regards quality.  In cases where unacceptable loss of detail would occur, thumbnail pictures have been used as a link.  By clicking on thumbnails, larger images will be opened (together with notes on content), but these may take a minute or so to download as the files are around 60-80 KB in size.   We're conscious of the time taken for pages to load, due to the image content, and will be restructuring those that grow to a point where this becomes a problem.


    How to Contribute

    For short anecdotes, corrections to errors, or supplementary info relating to existing material, please send by e-mail.  For longer articles, we can handle files from any word-processing software (attach to an e-mail).  If you're really hip, complete pages in HTML would be great!

    Images, ideally, should be in JPEG (*.jpg) format, the bigger the better.  In general, pics sized to a width on screen of around 10 inches (approx 720 pixels wide for techno-whizzes) will be fine.  Don't compress too much, as there may be a need to do some processing before adding to the site.  If in doubt, I'm sure we can advise.

    No scanner?  If you're willing to lend your prints/mags or whatever for a few days, they'll be handled with total respect and will be returned promptly by 1st class post in a stiff envelope.  Please drop us a line & we'll forward a mailing address.
