Re: MR: Our story so far...
Poster: Virtual Valkyries <email@example.com>
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was really wondering how it was we got
to this point and didn't want to read all of the reams of e-mail on this
subject. I've read alot, but somehow missed some important transitions. I
actually can think of a good reason to warrent official web masters, and
that is the same one used to warrent chroniclers. As a group, we want to be
certain that the information we distribute is correct and official. And
outsiders are far more likely to see a Web page than a baronial newsletter.
I don't think warrenting is merely a question of official funds being spent,
as was mentioned about 150 e-mails ago. We warrent our marshals because we
want to see marshalling proceed in a proscribed way, which I think disproves
that notion. What is so wrong with ensuring that outsiders first
impressions of us, as a group, are correct? Perhaps a warrent is not the
correct way, but I can not fault the sentiment behind it. Are chatelaines
warrented? Maybe a groups web page should come under the provence of the
chronicler and he/she should merely delegate the HTML coding. Since it is
the content of the pages and not necessarily the presentation that is at
issue, this would effectively solve the problem.
