UK Decay Communities are ten years old in 2014, to celebrate we bring you an updated and refurbished website.
The new website will host the Luton area’s community aspect whilst continue to house the resource for the early period (1978 – 1983) UK Decay. The Luton and area Punk community pages will be hosted under ‘The Communities’ button, whilst UK Decay related material will be hosted under ‘Historical UK Decay‘ button.
A new store to be managed like the old system with ‘Werewolf’ in charge of the orders will soon be opened, specialising in the earlier period merchandise. So if you would like to replace or purchase a new classic design ‘For My Country’ or ‘Unexpected Guest’ T Shirt this will be the place to shop and buy. Werewolf will administer and fulfill the orders so you can expect a prompt and speedy service. Anyone wishing to purchase new UK Decay related merchandise should visit the store at that site here
Coming soon we hope to be selling some new designs based on IN Excelsis, Pneumania and Furyo as well, the artwork will be prepped in the new year – watch this space!
We will continue eventually with some discreet ads but as soon as we breech the Google threshold of £60.00, we shall accept their payment and shut down the ads. The money will pay for a period of webhosting. We will invite private entrepreneurs with material appropriate to this website to advertise instead with a small and very reasonable charge.
The new website will of course be closely allied to the new period website and their will be some shared resources and linkage.
The old forum is still in place, it is eventually hoped to migrate to a new archive position, but in the meantime it is still in place as a resource. The gallery to eventually will be migrated but in the meantime it has recently been augmented with an amount of new material. We have built in a cool new feature that will throw the picture up into a lightbox, similar to Facebook etc. so you don’t have to leave the page to view.
We will be looking at improving social network integration in the future, as the new site is built on a wordpress based framework, we should be able to keep up with twenty first century web continuity. Also it should in theory at least in most areas be adaptive and responsive for mobile and tablet viewing.
So please go ahead take a look around the new UK Decay Communities.
