    Knocked this up for a friend.

    http://www.temptationfm.com/home.php

    Not much content on there at the moment but it should be finished off pretty soon. The space at the top right is where banners advertising events etc will go.

    Added a gallery and a forum to go with the site.

    Don't think it looks too bad for one nights work.

    Cheers. :)

    My first thought was why would you provide the regulatory authorities with an incredibly easy way of tracking this pirate station down.

    I assume the police are still interested in pirate radio?

    Domain registrant:
    Rob Mather,
    Wentworth Road
    etc etc

    Nice site though.

    Hmmm, can I get into trouble for the design of the website even though it has nothing to do with me? :confused:

    What about people who set up fan sites etc?

    There are plenty of stations in London that have websites -

    www.itchfm.com
    www.freezefm.co.uk
    www.vulive.co.uk

    etc..

    You might have the plod knocking on your door for information regarding your client.

    Might want to think up a good story now.

    It probably wont get that far, but you never know. ;)

    Would some sort of disclaimer be any good?

    Wonder how all those other stations get away with it as there seems to be quite a few sites that have been designed professionally.

    Maybe it's worth firing the webmaster an email? I'm not sure on the legalities of providing a web site for an illegal service but it can't be too positive.

    By providing a website or any product/service to aid another committ an illegal act just means you are an accessory to that act. Especialy when you know about it.

    It is probably punishable by the same sentence and the person committing the act. Stay well clear!

    So you are encouraging people to partisipate in illegal activities just becuase you believe the threat of being caught is minimal. Have you no morals?

    I wouldn't say encouraging, but supporting.

    Although you could say that as a client you expected everything to be legal their end and that you were simply given a brief and you completed it. Say by pirate you thought they meant a "Yargh! Radio"

    ;)

    I was mostly referring to the fact the domain is registered to Phaser by the looks of it which might be unwise.

    "Legal" != "moral", "moral" != "legal".
