| First Let Me Say, I Love Your Web Site. The Only Way... ||Aug 27th. at 6:58:36 pm UTC|

First let me say, I love your web site. The only way to possibly improve is to give readers MORE ! More stories, pictures and info. I would like to see more about how other witches/wiccans/pagans celebrate their lives and the world around them. I hope you realize the great service you are doing for the community. Keep up the great work !

|Aurora (Gresham, Oregon US) ||Age: 25 |
I have learned so much from this site! The only thing I would change is to put a top of page or next link (or both) on the bottom of pages - especially the essays. I would like to spend more time reading than scrolling to the top to click on the link to the next one. Thank you for all of your hard work!

Well Change is good, ususally, unless it's only for the sake of change.
I think Witchvox is the best and most famous pagan website in the world.
If I were to make any changes, I would try to broaden the scope to include information and education about Non-Wiccan types of Paganism. I would try to be as diverse as possible. But hey that's me. I'm a "tolerance education" type of guy. :) I love Witchvox, I think it's the bright star on the internet. No matter what websites we operate or patronize, I think millions of us think of Witchvox as home. As I told Fritz once, a gallery of Witchvox users would be great but a time consuming project. It would be great to see all the shiny happy pagan face though :)

| I Really Enjoy The Photos Of Other Pagans And Groups And News... ||Aug 28th. at 12:45:10 am UTC|
|evergreen (Baltimore, Maryland US) ||Age: 60 |
I really enjoy the photos of other pagans and groups and news features;
the only thing I would like to see maybe added is a corner for "special
intentions" for say illness or family troubles;- whatever people would like
to have the community at large include in their circles.
| The Only Thing I Would Change Is More Information To Be Allowed... ||Aug 28th. at 1:51:44 am UTC|
|Di (Adelaide, South Australia AU) ||Age: 19 - Email |
The only thing I would change is more information to be allowed on this internet, and which is less wiccan orientated.
But otherwise, it is excellant.
| Blessings All! One Addition Could Be Added For Those Who Like Me... ||Aug 28th. at 4:08:12 am UTC|
|Wayne Andrews (Siler City, North Carolina US) ||Age: 50 - Email |
One addition could be added for those who like me, love to sing with the free tunes.
For example "Blade Of The Sidhe" is my favorite next to Starwood.
While listening to the CD, I figured out the cords used: G, C, D, A7, and B7
cords so far.
Perhaps others do the same thing. Play their musical instrument, and sing with the song playing. You feel like you are part of the group.
You also feel like you are there at Starwood, sharing the energy with everyone!
What am I saying?
Tabliture form is a bit lenghtly and takes a lot of work.
Just mention the cords used in the song. People can use books and other materials (cord computer for guitar) to learn the cords.
Note: (Fritz, you are correct! 3/4 time signature is not hard for me.
synchronizing the voice *and* music is really hard. It took me two days!
In "Show Us What We Are Meant To Be" part was really hard. Haven't figured that one out yet (the cords). Tremendous energy in those songs)!
How you would put it in the sidebar on the right, I don't know yet?
Just a thought to enjoy the music even more.
Brothers and Sisters, if you do this at circles, Pagan Picnics, ect.,
please give the origional authors the credit for the songs!
Can't really think of other additions to add right off the top of my head.
TWV is really structured very well. Very nice work indeed!
Blessed Be Well

| I'm Continually Impressed With The Effort And Commitment Put Into This Site... ||Aug 28th. at 6:35:28 am UTC|
|Lisa (Edinburgh, Scotland UK) ||Age: 28 |
I'm continually impressed with the effort and commitment put into this site. It's the source I recommend to new people most often.
I think it would be good to promote the essays and sections more clearly. There is a lot of incredibly useful information on this site, but because it's so huge, it can be difficult to find. For instance, I only found the excellent pieces on Witch Wars when Fritz mentioned them in passing on the home page.
The black on white format of recent designs I find easier on the eye than the black background. It's also easier to read surreptitiously, as I am sure some readers have to.
I'd like to see more on other paths apart from Wicca, and more non US sources of information.
I'm personally not that interested in seeing other people's pussycats, cute as they may be. I'd rather the webspace was used for more articles, personally.
This is not to say that I think the website needs major changes - it is an excellent resources. But hopefully the constructive criticism given this week will prove useful.
Here's to many more years of Witchvox!

|Ciarrai (Somewhere in Somerset County, New Jersey US) ||Age: 34 - Email |
I have to agree w/ Captain Ike of Freaky Planet on this one: The Witches' Voice is home. I wouldn't change a thing about the site.
However, I am curious about how the Witches' Voice Staff started on their Pagan paths, and where they went to learn...
I know I can ALWAYS find whatever I need to know on this site. I have never had a bad experience with anyone that I have networked with nor any of the merchants that I have found on TWV.
| I Am Unsure If Tvw Needs To Do This, Or If Needs... ||Aug 28th. at 11:16:50 am UTC|
|Storm Bear Williams (Winston-Salem, North Carolina US) ||Age: 38 - Email |
I am unsure if TVW needs to do this, or if needs to be a separate thing. TWV is a reporting/news site but does not serve to build a community, the community goes to TWV as a resource and absorbs it, they do not become PART of TWV. But again, these may need to be two different things. I would love to see a Pagan site like SlashDot.org or my site NauseaManifesto.com. These are sites run by either PHP-Nuke or Slashcode which are open source web community software applications. This allows the community an easier way to post news and comment dirrectly on that news and have others comment to their comments. When Bill Stewart was acting President of CAW, I encouraged him to use this software to start an online version of GreenEggForum. It would have filled the gap that I feel is present in the community and would have gone a long way to help save Green Egg. Anyway, see what you think.
