Could you lend a hand contributing to or managing the new website? Training and permissions can be given to a deputy web manager and news reporters. Also here is a list of those who helped develop the website.

The aim is to keep the new website is kept as up-to-date as possible with results, news stories and accompanying photos, features, information and links to other sites of interest. If you have any comments or suggestions about the website or need to tell me something is missing or wrong, please contact me (see contacts page).

The key feature of the website is that several people rather than just a webmaster can upload to it, to varying degrees. In due course, I would like to share the web manager duties with another. I am hoping for a co-manager or at least a deputy for when I am unavailable. A few people will also be given the permissions to upload results and entries, typically those with leading roles in the SI team. News reporter permissions can also be allocated to those who feel they can contribute news stories for the home page.

More generally still, contributions to the website are welcome from all in the same way that they were for the currently dormant QuOnicle. Our newsletter had a varied series of articles, reviews of events from individual runners and pieces of general interest. Of course, an editorial eye is needed too (another vacancy) as is someone who could politely badger people to make those contributions!
