The downside of the English version is it doesnt contain the equal amount of information of the Swedish version. Otherwise it is a good website

Sorry, but compared to the Danish, Norwegian, British Royal Family's websites etc., the Swedish one is really lousy.
Very bad design, updates usually being very late, the English version being inferior to the Swedish, the picture's quality not the best and the site's overall impression unappealing. If I had a say in it, I'd certainly advise the Royal Family to employ someone else to take better care of it.
Once all other forums on the Net - first of all, this one! - are always one step ahead of a Royal Family's official website, there's obviously something wrong with it, I'd say.

I inputted "average" as a polite way of saying "poor".

Other than that, I generally agree with Boris.
- at one time the Norwegian webpage was poor, but
they did an extensive revision.
- the Danes did an extensive revision too.

- I recall the Royal Court did a revision too, but they
could do with another one.
They're very behind in their "Bilder".

One plus, is their pictorial sequence of a visit of an
ambassador is good.

The description of castles should be as extensive in
English and German?, as it appears to be in Swedish.

Minus-points
-The design, IMO the worst thing about the site. Itīs boring and made for slow modems (28 and 56kb). nowadays most ppl have fast modems, so why not Flash, or more design elements??
- As other members have mentioned, itīs only partly translated into english.
-They seldom publish new official pictures on the page.
-Some older pictures would be nice (old historical pictures, but also e.g pictures of a young king, pics of the Royal children, when they were little...)
- They havenīt started to work with modern medias...e.g. little video clips
-Spokeswoman of the court, Ann Christin Jernberg uses the homepage as her personal playground and publishes her "weekly column"
- I want a site/an area for children on the page

Plus-points
I agree with the members, who have told their opinions. In general I havenīt much positive to say. I hope they do a big makeover in the case of a Royal wedding and see the chance-> they can raise their popularity with a good made site.

needs a refresh and update

I feel that the website is tired. This was a veery early royal website - it is starting to look tired and needs to be reworked.

I'd love to see a few more features - and even a regular monthly special piece on some aspect of the royal family or the royal collection.

I would also like to see more on the heraldry of the royal family on their bio pages. We have their Cyphers, why not their seraphim order shields. This shows their royal duchies and for Princess Lilian, her late husband's duchy arms and her personal arms. A piece on SWedish royal heraldry would be most appreciated!!!

pretty good = ganska bra
ganska bra is a bit over avarge
and in the poll it seems that the webbiste is loked on as a bit better then avarge

Well avarage would result in a value of 2.5 for the mean of all votes. Better than avarage a value lower than that. Actually the avarage at the moment is 3. So its below avarage and therefore has a tendency to poor!

Opinion on The Royal Court of Sweden's Webbsite
the website is Excellent 0 0%
the website is Good 7 35.00%
the website is Average 8 40.00%
the website is Bad 3 15.00%
the website is Lousy 2 10.00%

Voters: 20.

take me through that again

Quote:

we get this by dividing 5 with 2

Quote:

i would say the oppisite

1-----2-----3-----4-----5
Lousy----Average-----Excellent

1*2 + 2*3 + 3*8 + 4*7 + 5*0 = 60
60/20 votes = 3 that would mean Average

But i also look at "Normalfördelningen" that is a higher curve to the higher grade

3-----4-----5
Average-----Excellent
40% + 35 % = 75%

1-----2-----3
Lousy----Average
15% + 40% = 55 %

normal distribution just can applied if you have a big enough sample which is not given. 20 out of one million? its even not 1 %. I say at a mean of 2.5 a tendence to good wold be could be concluded. At an avarage of 3 well the page is just avarage. But wenn you look at the actuall votes its somehow obvious that ther are 2 extreme negative votes. I think extremley negative votes should be taken more in to regard esp if assumin normal distribution is nonsense here.

i am not sure i totally agree there


but lets hope we will get some more votes and see where it leads us

there is one thing i am missing at the webbsite
its a evensts plan when they are on longer trips like state visit for the king and queen and official visit for victoria

there rae more and more reports on the evenst the roylas so
but i would like it to be in english so others can read about it also

i would like to know what orders and medels they have in the royal family
and facts about past royals

it seems that the webbsite is getting better on reporting on big evensts like victorias australien visit but the state visit that is going on now

there is absolut a change in the information flow at the site but i also hope we will see a desifn change

Hope a new website is coming soon!

Denmark, Britain and Norway have modern and updated websites. BRAVO! :)

The Swedish site is so bad that it embarrass me! I've heard though that The Royal Court in Sweden are working on a better and more modern site. HM King Carl XVI Gustafs mottoe is "For Sweden - With the times"! Just hope a new or updated site will come soon... :o

I think the Norwegian webiste is bad (it contains little information, bad quality picture and only little is translated to english), however clearly not as BAAAAAAD as the swedish one which is so amaturinsh one would think it was made by a (bad) webstudent in his first class and not appropriate for the head of state. Also the norwegians are getting an update on their website, hopefully both the Swedes and Norwegians can try to take examle from the British website which is great, always updated with pictures and storys from events, easy to navigate and modern to look at with a good searchable archive that goes way back.

Yes, but that's what I and the other Swedes inform you on here on TRF! :) With the lack of a good English website of the Royal Court, and also a good Swedish one for that matter, there's always TRF... I have high hopes for the new, coming, website.
