I know we are entered in the prize draw for reviewing a site but I have a suggestion to encourage the posting of new sites to increase the database.

I’m sure lots of “abroad” caravan/tent/Motorhome users have an ACSI CC book and I always check out sites I am considering on UKCS. While some are listed here, many are not and I always submit these for consideration, and review when published.   There’s rather more effort entailed in submitting a new site and this may put some of our members off unless we give them some additional incentive.

You could double, or treble? the draw entries for a previously unlisted site, or someone may dream up an alternative incentive.
Would it help?

I think one of the issues if you want to submit a review for an unlisted site is that you first have to submit the site details and then remember to come back and check that its up and running before sending the review. It would be helpful if the two actions could somehow be combined into one?

But UKCS do notify you when it is listed and ready for review.

However the simpler it is the more likely you are to get more reviews. I am sure the conscientious review writer will respond to the e-mail but I wonder how many do?

It doesn't bother me. I put four up last year and will list a few Norman ones this year. Winning stuff isn't the reason. I notice that reviews of sites that aren't in the UK don't really win often anyway and nearly all mine are Ireland or France.
I just like making the site available for others.

I mainly review French sites and I have just won a £150 voucher! Thank you UKCS! Majority winning for UK reviews would simply reflect the greater number who don’t venture from our shores.
The voucher is not the reason for posting a review, but it is a lovely bonus and IS an incentive.

Keep up the reviews - I will. Going to Noah’s Arc in Perth next week and will review for sure

I always add reviews unless there are loads already, it's not difficult and yes, you get an email reminder.

Shortly there will be more from me.
