Webminister emeritus

Hi all, I'm Yehoshua ben Hayyim Halevi, of the Shire of Ma'ale Giborim.

I founded the Eastkingdom web page (Way back when rocks were soft and dirt was a fresh new idea, and I had a different SCA Name). I also served as the webminister for Drachenwald and my shire for a bit.

In the real worlds I do Javascript and PHP professionally for a startup outside of Tel Aviv. Mostly I plan to lurk here but will pipe up from time to time.
S'pose I should also add that I'm my Barony's webminister - Barony Middle Marches - www.midrealm.org/midmarch
I had a hard time figuring out which little box to select for the SCA site I maintain as I'm currently the Webminister for the Kingdom of the Outlands' Ministry of Arts and Sciences.
There are so many ways a person can be a webminister in the SCA, I knew I'd leave out something. But that's what comments are for, so thanks for speaking up :)
Add another to the list. I founded aeheralds.net, AEthelmearc's Heraldry Website and aeans.org, the kingdom's A&S page.

one (of many) content editors on http://wiki.caid-commons.org
Did you teach the Web Class at Drakenmere's Collegium? If I hadn't have been there with Baroness Zofia in the embroidery class (right beside you), I would have come to that one.
Unfortunately I couldn't make it to that one, but if you're interested there are going to be several webminister round tables coming up in Meridies:

Red Tower (Sep 19), MGT (Sep 26), and Fall Crown List (Oct 10). And there's a yahoo group for Meridian Webministers.

I hope to go to a couple of them, but that depends on Selphie's health.

Do you have a website? :)

*giggle* I have several (mostly family history and/or "professional" [Trillium] but my primary SCA-related site is my SCA photos (not an official website) -- http://www.goldsword.com/sfarmer/SCA [the newer stuff is on facebook until I get it moved -- http://facebook.com/susan.b.farmer ...]. I want to hang some other stuff off there for newcomers.

I also maintain the site for the Meridian Embroidery Guild. It's my understanding that that is not an official site either.
It may not be official, but it's still a website for the SCA :) Have you read the new Meridian Webminister's Handbook? You should check it out, there's a lot of good points in it :)
not yet -- but I'm doing it now .....
Let me know if you need any emotional support after reading it ;)

On the bright side, making my shire's website compliant with the new handbook really helped me learn a lot about web accessibility standards, which are rather important, especially considering that the SCA has quite a few members with accessibility issues. :)
It's certainly a lot to take in in one reading! I'm gonna have to study and contemplate for certain!
I made a checklist of all the rules that applied to the shire's website, and that helped a good bit. I was fortunate because I was already making a new website, so I could fairly easily incorporate all the new rules. If you have any questions about any of it, I should be able to point you in the right direction :)
Well, I desperately need to redo the guild site. It's been on my list of things to do for quite some time! It's just a matter of finding the time.
