you have a comment, request for information or simply
want to say hello, e-mail DinoWight at:
put "I need help" or "enquiry" in
the subject heading. I get numerous e-mails from the alleged
relatives of deposed Nigerian civil-servants with dodgy
money-making schemes that have similar headings, and I
am in the habit of deleting them straight away without
reading them. Sometimes I look through them, and find
an e-mail from a DinoWight reader, but this is very rare.
prevent this, please include the word DinoWight
at the start of the subject, with the D and the W capitalised,
and you will definitely get a reply.
will do my best to answer anybody's questions, but please
remember that I will not answer questions in essay form
by any deadline, so no getting me to do all your homework
for you. E-mails will not be posted on the site, and the
contents are private, unless you wish it to be posted
or I ask permission.
a lot of time and effort to complete a website, especially one
that has to be up-to-date. I am opening out DinoWight to anyone
who wishes to contribute pictures, descriptions or any general
you think that you could do this, then send in your submissions,
following the guidelines below, to the e-mail
article submissions must be in plain text, preferably in the
main part of the e-mail. Text documents in attachments will
be ignored. This is due to the possibility of viruses.
must be in JPEG format, and either sent as attachments or
be stored on-line.
give your details in the following format
(e.g. Bernie Fishnotes)
Location- (e.g. Dinosaurchester, Isle of Wight)
E-mail address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
URL (website address- if you have one)- (e.g. http://www.dinowight.co.uk)
Nature of contribution (e.g. picture, review, description,
information, anecdote or whatever)
JPEG file name- (e.g. dinosaur.jpg)
Source of material- (e.g. http://www.wikipedia.org/)
Then the review/description/information/anecdote/etc (e.g.
The Isle of Wight is a good place to find dinosaurs)
sure it's relevant. The remit of DinoWight is the Dinosaurs
of the Isle of Wight. That means Dinosaur fossils, collecting,
systematics, museums and guidebooks involving the Isle of
Wight. It does not include quaternary or tertiary fossils,
with Dinosaurs, mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers, The
Morrison Formation, Lyme Regis, The KT boundary, Jurassic
Park, The Lost World or Jurassic Park III (though
as this film was pants then I doubt anyone would want to!),
Tyrannosaurus rex, the Natural History Museum in London,
America or anywhere, Neanderthals or trilobites. There may
be some mention of non-dinosaurian Mesozoic organisms, but
only if they are relevant to dinosaurs. If you want to write
about coprolites, then please do so, but only Isle of Wight
ones. Basically, if it isn't from the Wealden
excepted), isn't from the Isle of Wight and doesn't have legs
and a vertebral column then leave it alone.
rude or offensive will NOT be included on the website. Not all
material will be used, and DinoWight reserves the right to edit
