This has been a busy week for bastardsreunion.org. The original version that was started about a month ago was put up in haste while I was still in class and prepping for the reunion. Since coming back from the 2018 reunion, I’ve been refining the site, adding content, making it better and a bit easier to find things. It’s still a work in progress and if you notice anything wrong, let me know through a comment, the contact page or email.
With classes start up again this week I may not have as much time to devote to upgrades but it’s something I’ll definitely do in my spare time. I WILL need help from the Jarheads that have been to a past reunion to submit their pictures and videos; the email is at the bottom of the pages. If you’ve got any suggestions, let me know what you want to see and I’ll make it happen.
Here are some of the updates from this week:
- New menu that makes it easier to find things
- New Locations page with the ability to submit your location
- Updated pages for 2012 & 2017 with 2016 coming soon
- Some housekeeping & behind the scenes pages
- Finalized the eCommerce process for the 2/4 challenge coin
- A donation button just in case someone feels the need
Finally, I want to clear something up. There was a request to include some pre 1990-1995 Marines on the locations map. After receiving what seems like 20+ requests, it was determined by Command that we are keeping this a 1990-1995 thing. We mean no disrespect to anybody but with as little time as I have to maintain this site and as much effort went into organizing the 2018 reunion with 27 people, at this time we are not ready to expand the window further. This was started by a member from that time period and we intend to keep it that way.
