|Find the best dive sites||
So you think that your local dive site is worthy of its own page in the illustrious Wannadive data-base of dive sites from around the world? To achieve a homogeneous look to the dive site data sheets, we have developed the interactive form with which anyone can submit details of their local diev sites. Before adding details of a dive site, please check carefully three things.
A step by step guide to completing the Add A Dive site form.
This rubric is NOT necessary; we would like to know the identity of, and a contact email for, our correspondents simply so that we can contact you if we have any difficulties understanding the data which you send in, whether it be in the text or in the attached photos, or whatever. As noted on the Form, we will not use addresses for Spam or unsolicited advertising of any kind. This site is run by divers for divers, and we dislike the abuse of the net for this kind of advertising as much as you do. If you feel uncomfortable with providing this information, then simply leave these sections blank, there is no obligation!
Lastly, if this idea of creating an 'open-format' guide to the worlds dive sites works, we will use this 'contact' information to offer recognition (and maybe prizes if we are feeling really generous) to those who contribute the most over a year.
This section is the most important to get right.
If after carefully checking the lists, including alternative spellings, you cannot find either the country or the zone you require, then you have the option of creating a new country or zone. We hope that this will be necessary only very rarely. It is our aim to have a list which is as close to being complete as possible. Any submission of dive sites with new Countries or Zones will be reviewed by 'The_Management' before lists are updated.
This blank section is designed for practical details of how to access the dive site. Assume that the person reading this section does not know the area! Be clear with descriptions, road numbers etc. If you are gifted with a software drawing package, then include a sketch of the area as a .gif or .jpg file.
If you used to locate the dive site with marks (landmarks, seamarks), then explain them here, or better, send a drawing using attachment (photo) upload form.
This section compliments the previous general description, giving a quick look description of how far the dive site is from the nearest major harbor by boat, or how far you must walk from the car to access the dive site if it is accessible by walk. Equally, indicate how easy the dive site is to find, once you are in the local area.
To avoid lists and lists of boring data you can add up to three files (Photo, map or landmarks/seamarks) of the dive site. These are attached to the form as you would to a mail, using the 'Browse' button. Please note that we are looking for photos which are particularly descriptive of the dive site. However, such photos can be added to the zone Photo Gallery Section - pages of photos which can be used to show the dive site!
When you add the photo please add a short line of text describing the photo "View of the South point of the Gabiniere, where the main wall is located"
Any additional information about the dive site can be added here. Various examples have been noted in the above text, but really anything can be added here, whether it be details of some of the aspects mentioned in the rubrics above, or something unique to the dive site.
Signing as the author of the dive site is a choice. Signatures will only be accepted after verification of a valid email address. We wouldn't want you signing a dive site with someone else's name now would we? If you add your email, expect to be contacted by divers looking for local information!!
OK, I've read the help... Let's add a dive site now !
