Kingdom Webminister office open

Greetings Fellow An Tirans!

It is time for me to hand over this office to a new Kingdom Webminister. Please send your resume and why you would like to have the office to webminister@antir.sca.org.

I want to echo what Krenn first posted in 2010 about the job:

It is in actuality three jobs:

  • Kingdom Webminister: account creator, wiki manager, paper pusher, meeting maker, hand holder, account manager, mediator, duties as assigned
  • Content Developer: just what it says, updates kingdom pages, updates Royals pages, etc., duties as assigned and
  • System Administrator: God

JL added one more:

  • A Designer: makes it all pretty and flow logically

I added a few more:

  • DBA: manages the databases
  • Document Manager: manages all the forms on the server for all the offices (this person is shared with other officers :D )

This office reports to the Society Webminister. The officers that report to the Kingdom office are the Kingdom’s Principalities and Branches not in the Principalities.

From the Webminister Handbook:

Qualifications

The ideal Kingdom Webminister has HTML experience, a complete web development lab in the home, and experience dealing with Internet Service Providers / hosting companies. None of us is perfect, but there are some minimum requirements:

  • Experience with writing or editing content

  • Reliable email/Internet access

    • Annual submission of entries to the Society Webminister for the Master William Blackfox Web Awards
    • Monitoring of recognized local websites within the Kingdom for policy compliance
    • Other duties and special projects that may be assigned by the Society Webminister

To my team:

You all know who you are, you did me proud in your jobs. :)

You as a team are the greatest group of people in the world. Collectively we are able to handle all these jobs.

I am a designer at heart, I have many designs in my head swimming around screaming to get out but I found myself distracted over and over with the greater tasks of the office. It could just be that it is due to the way I work and handle things and the job will be way easier for one of you to do so please do not be put off by it.

I know that there would have been no way that I could have even survived this long if I had not had this team that Krenn put together and then I added a few more. You all are angels in disguise, I know you are! :)

I love you guys, I really do. :)
