Intro Page

John,

Have looked at your intro page. Small and minor issue but shouldn't the word RIB near the end of the following paragraph be in caps.

RIBnet was launched at the beginning of 1998 and has constantly grown ever since, with visitors from the UK and throughout the world. We are now the number one Google search result for the word rib. RIBnet brings you up to date news and the combined experience of thousands of contributors - it's better than a magazine!

It's the same either way. Even if you're not looking for information about RIBs, if you Google for rib this is where you get to first!

Oh dear, we have indeed been bumped by the mighty Wikipedia!

I wonder if it was because of the recent changes to the RIBnet home page, or just the unstoppable rise of Wikipedia?

Totally agree with that point Biggles. RIBnet beats the mags hands down in lots of ways. Made that very point to an editor of a well known RIb mag.
