A local design company requested my resume. I've included a list of sites that I've worked on. My question is should I include defunct sites? If so, should I mark them as defunct or separate the defunct sites from the active sites and list them under a heading marked "defunt sites" or should I just lump them all together in a long list?

I've decided that there is no

I've decided that there is no real point to listing defunct sites unless there were no active sites. I've also decided to not list my personal site for manifold reasons. Smile
