“My website is migrated—now what do I do?”
With 104 websites migrated to date, this is a question the
Web Team has been hearing from web maintainers more and more frequently. And as the number of requests to the Web Team for smaller website changes increases, we find ourselves with less and less time to work on finishing the website migration.
So in order to clear up any confusion, we have created a list of specific responsibilities for web maintainers, which you’ll find below. As of December 1, 2008, the Web Team will begin to turn down requests to do things that are the responsibilities of web maintainers. In other words, the posting of news and events, making minor updates to web pages, etc. will need to be carried out by web maintainers rather than the Web Team.
We’re still here to support our web maintainers, and our upcoming training sessions will be targeting the skills web maintainers need to carry out these duties. (Please consult
Web Team Events for information about upcoming training sessions.) We'll also continue to provide phone and e-mail support—but our emphasis will be on training web maintainers to carry out their responsibilities rather then doing those things for them.
