As many people know by now I have assumed the role of webmaster for The Cohousing Network web site, http://www.cohousing.org, replacing Stuart Staniford-Chen. Stuart did a tremendous job in creating a great site for cohousers---and I can now appreciate his efforts even more! I know many people have had requests for the site that are long outstanding, so I wanted to update you on things: 1. We've assembled a team of capable volunteers to assist with site maintenance and/or advisement, and now need to establish an internal process for handling the workload and site changes (which will include letting you know what you can expect for "turnaround time" for site requests). The Web Team consists of: Raines Cohen Michael McIntyre Sanda Everette Fred Olson Bill Germino Rob Sandelin Judy Linton Steve Walmsley Michael Mariner I'm very grateful to this volunteer group for their willingness to help, and special thanks to Michael Mariner for all his assistance in helping me in my new role. 2. The first order of business after moving the site to a new server was to address a growing backlog of update requests. Nearly all of those requests were addressed this weekend, mostly consisting of updated links. 3. The following are outstanding requests: > Review the SEARCH function which appears is not working > Change the webmaster contact information (from Stuart to myself) on all pages > Respond to the "information request only" messages (that webmasters usually get) > Address the latest site requests from the last 7-10 days (that Stuart received) > Address other "miscellaneous" requests from the backlog 4. Going forward, I will be working with the web team and new Cohousing Network Board to make some changes to the site in both content and formatting. If you made a request for a new or updated link in the past 4-5 months, please check it now---it should be done. All requests that *could* be addressed *have* been addressed, so don't assume your request is still in the backlog (unless it came in the last two weeks). Submit any repeat or new requests to me directly. My coho website e-mail address is GERMINO [at] MSN.COM, and this will be my primary and preferred e-mail address for this work. However, I often use my work account, which is GERMINO [at] BABSON.EDU, so you may use this as well. Also, if you're interested in serving in an advisory capacity for future site changes please me know. That will likely happen over the next few months. Thanks for your patience and understanding during the site transition. It is my goal to create a first-rate site that has updated, relavant, and timely information, and to do all we can to support cohousers in their endeavors to build and maintain their communities. I look forward to serving the cohousing community. Cheers! Bill p.s. Going forward my messages will be much shorter!
