Where did you hear about DinoWight? : Dinosauricon

Question/Comment : Neat site! I'm a dinosaur enthusiast from middle Europe. I've heard a lot about Isle of Wight fossils (esp. Eotyrannus) but didn't know there's also a web site about it. Keep up good work.

[Thankyou! Yes, Eotyrannus did get a lot of press coverage, but then that's what you get if you're related to the most famous dinosaur in the world (No, not Barney, T. rex). DW]

Question/Comment : Just a note to say how impressed I am with the new animated logo!

[Thanks. It took me…ooh…minutes! I can still remember the one you had on Dinobiscuits, with all those flashing images guaranteed to give visitors epileptic fits. When are you getting one for your new website, The Plesiosaur Directory? DW]

Question/Comment : I need someone to sample the Lower crioceras beds at Whale Chine - publication guaranteed! Any volunteers?

[(After re-reading the content of the message, having first erroneously believed it to be from yet another student asking for all the answers and sending an e-mail reply saying as much) Unfortunately, I am unable to help myself, but if any of DinoWights Isle of Wight-based fans can help, then I'm sure that you'll hear from them. Sorry! (note to self- READ THE ENTRIES BEFORE REPLYING!) DW]

Where did you hear about DinoWight? : from a friend in church (? DW)

Question/Comment : i love this site and i want to hear more about people i want to meet people. if you have my email please mail me

[Well, to be honest this isn't really the place for advertising for pen-pals, but if people want to chat with this person, then the e-mail address is above. I still can't see what a clergyman from Africa found interesting about a Isle of Wight website about dinosaurs. DW]

Where did you hear about DinoWight? : How to Become Rich Dotcom

Question/Comment : Fraud Warning! Vicar from Nigeria, with no comment about dinos and a free yahoo email address... Efosa is a con-artist and wishes to steal money.

[Cripes! Thanks for the warning, Well spotted Trevor. As you can see above, I have removed the e-mail address for our money grabbing vicar. I should have realised really, as most of the e-mails I receive about extracting the money from the bank account of the five million Americans who die in a plane crash in Nigeria seem to come from Lagos or Togo. Mind you, I have a free e-mail address, so what does that say about me? DW]

A Message from DinoWight- The Dinosaurs of the Isle of Wight

As you may have read in the previous entry, certain people are using DinoWight to try and get money out of people. I will not tolerate this sort of behaviour, and so from now on all entries asking for contact addresses or pen pals will be checked and filtered. I'm sorry that I have to do this, as of the 48 entries to date, only one has been of this nature, but as DinoWight is used by minors I have to ensure that everything involved is safe for them to use.

Thankyou

Question/Comment : Whats the length of an Iguanodon? Tell me a lot about the Iguanodon

[Iguanodon comes in many sizes, the longest being 13 metres, or 42 feet. More information on Iguanodon can be found here, but if some of the information is a bit technical (Which a lot of it is!) then here goes.
Iguanodon is a large(ish) bird-hipped dinosaur, which is known from every country on Earth. It ate plants, especially ferns and conifers. Originally discovered in England in 1824 by Gideon Mantell, it was believed to be a large iguana, with a horn on it's snout. Later work showed the horn was a spike on the thumb, which may have been used for defence against meat eating dinosaurs.
If you want any more information, may I suggest using your school library, as Iguanodon was mentioned in almost every dinosaur book I had as a child, and I believe that the situation has remained the same. DW]

Where did you hear about DinoWight? : From the author

Question/Comment Very nice website, although after looking at the dinosaur descriptions I do have a craving for a Cadburys Crunchie. Mmm. Is that a scientific description for the inside of a dinosaur bone?

[Cadburys Crunchie is the official description for the internal structure of dinosaur bones under the official UK Comparative Descriptions Act of 1997, which also determined the Wales as a unit of deforestation! DW]
