What is the advantage of your website over others?

Tell us a story about this website.
Our Sandvox website has been a group effort with numerous contributors which has helped the communal spirit of the club, generating dialogue, among the members and pride in membership in the group. The group now has a presence it never had before.
Why did you use this Sandvox design?
The first eature that attracted us to this Sandvox design was the color because purple and silver are the club colors. Then, the flexibility of page design with the side-bars and callouts, albums, video embedding, site map and the blog met all our needs for displaying our information. I particularly like the ability to place sidebar elements on selected pages. It is a very sensible and useable design.
What techniques did you use to build this website?
We used pares with and without sidebars, embedded you tube video, photo album, plain text, photo pages, facebook like, site map and lots of links between pages to keep people moving about and exploring the website.
