Ian Hendrie Tech: Out of date websites and events (19) Tech: Out of date websites and events 21 Nov 13

This is a plea for the removal of out-of-date websites and full dates to be used when advertising events.

In creating my local folk web-hub for the area around Stockport in the NW of England I have come across a number of websites for folk clubs which don't seem to have been updated for two years or more. I have to deduce that these clubs no longer exist but why can't someone remove the sites from the web?

To add to the confusion there are some events advertised on some sites where the date does not contain a year and which (I believe, though I can't be sure) may have taken place already (last year or even earlier).

The internet should improve communication not lead to confusion.
