This query from the Home Page led me to think that maybe it isn't that clear how to join/subscribe? Who would think that Fireside Journal was the place to look?

:idea: How about a link that said, "Join the Gang", for example?

There is a Join The Society link in the first paragraph on the home page, but I agree that a button on the left would be nice. I do miss some of the "old" links though, such as the Society Shop and Journal Catalogue.

Ming is correct, it does say Join the Society, which is underlined on the home page, but what I think it is, is that everyone is looking down the left hand side at the boxes for the links, and looking nowhere else. Which I have to confess is what I was doing when I was looking for the on-line shop. I missed it on the home page.

I agree. The "Join the Society" link on the Home Page is easily overlooked and, confusingly, there is no direct "Join the Society" link from "Society Shed."

It would be useful to have an "Online Shop" link under "Society Shed" too.

"Concur" I suspect. It does look strange though! (But not as strange as "concer"!!)
