Who does what?
« on: December 07, 2007, 09:56:07 PM »
Hi Guys,

I am not sure who does what on the site. I know that Matthew owns the site and Joe helps with the admin, for some reason I thought Ben was too. who is else working on the site and is Anders still involved?  :)

Dear Tara,

Anders drops in and we all still love him to bits. He 'owns' the .com domain which now points here. I 'own' the .org and .net domains and I paid for the hosting fees for two years. Joey is the head hardman. We bought him leather boots. If things get rough he handles it. I make the site look pretty, to the best of my ability, and make sure it works and tinker with the programming a bit.

Ben was our librarian but when I got banned from e-sangha where he is a moderator he jumped ship - I believe - without announcing it. He hasn't posted in a long time. As you may ask, I got banned for being "racist" as I posted "Tibetan is a dying language" - which is probably inaccurate but I'm no racist and my teacher is Tibetan.

When we launched I organised things so we rank highly in google searches. I think we are such an eclectic bunch here that we will be joined over time by others treading the path who will be drawn to our way of doing things and I want them to find us. As I have written elsewhere we are an unstructured democracy without rules.

In this sense you 'own' the site as much as I do. In the literal sense you own the copyright on your individual posts as do we all. By posting you assign to me (I suppose technically as 'site owner') permission to use your words for the purpose of this website only and no other purpose.

Joey and I both hold all the keys to the site jointly.

In the Dhamma,

Matthew

Thank you for explaining Mathew, and for volunteering I don't know how to quote some posts without screwing them let alone being an administrator, I could serve virtual tea and coffee though ;)

"I'm off to shit on the shrine". Man you should have seen their faces. Some of them were very religious.

I bet, that took some guts!  "Lisa" must have really had you p/o'd. 
Six months is a long time of holding back...some folks must have loved every minute!

No I was pissed off at the silly cow who tried to calm it down with platitudes and letting the bullying childish Lisa get her way. I knew Lisa was ignorant but the director had no excuse for such unskillful means
