Our contract is finished!

It's over; we no longer do business with the skater boys!

After dad sent his email to them Friday, he got an email back today, saying they will end the contract with us, reimbursing all monies paid out to them so far. Dad can walk away with all his money, but will have to start all over again.

Skater boys keep all the work they have done so far, but we of cause still keep the domain names and all the rights. We are unsure why they have been so easy, could it be they know their in the wrong for messing us around, they no they can't do they work asked of them, or dad is so much of a pain in the arse, they wanted rid? Whatever their reasons it's fine with us.

Yes it is a pain in the arse to start all over again, but hopefully second time around things will be a little easier for us. We have more of an insight into how things work now, not loads, but more than we had before.

Although we we're happy with the website design before, we are thinking of making some changes and hopefully with a good web designer we can have a better graphically produced website. Chrome showed the colours up to be nice and bright, however explorer and Firefox were a little too dull.

Dad has already thought of changing the colour scheme, I would really like to change the logo font, I hate it, hopefully with a new designer we can convince dad to change it.

In the meantime it's back to the drawing board. Dad is making changes to the spec, making sure everything is up to date and includes every last detail we can possibly think of. We know there will be things forgotten, but I doubt it will be much.

Dad has been in touch with a few website companies who deal with design and development via email today and is awaiting a response. I have contacted a few but only heard back from one, saying his workload is to high at the moment to take anymore work on at present. Most of them don't seem to both at all.

If any of my readers happen to be looking for more work in this area, or no of someone that is, please feel free to contact me!

Very frustrating when you are back to square one all over again. However it isn't a total loss. We have everything in place now, which we didn't have before. Emails, terms of conditions, registration of the company, VAT, All the text information, products, marketing info, Google, Paypal and analytics, the list is endless. All we have to do now is find the right person to do the job well and correctly and hopefully everything will run smoothly second time around.

I will make sure that I attend every meeting with dad this time to make sure they aren't the sister company to the skater!

In the meantime, I doubt I shall be blogging as much as before as I think thinks will be a little slow to begin with, but I shall endevour to keep you informed every step of the way........
