Shoot Me Now!

Um, yeah. It hasn't been a horrible day or anything -- just a wildly frustrating day!

No, people, we are NOT going to change our policies at the website -- policies I've carefully enforced for the past five years -- just because a sponsor isn't happy with their placement on a given page.

It should be HMCS not HCMS -- it stands for Her Majesty's Canadian Ship, after all. We messed it up for the second year in a row. I'm being kind when I say 'we.' I'm not supposed to have to catch these things: I'm being given fleet copy by supposed experts, so why are they missing this???

We have NO BANDS in our Memorial Day March for next Monday. Zero. Nada. Whoops, I take that back! The OMTAAMB is going to throw together as many people as they can to give us one marching band! And we're scrambling to get boom boxes and whatever else to have some MUSIC in our March. It's so dull without it...

Hey, if you discover what you think is a large mistake on one of our webpages, I suggest you be kind with how you present it to me as the webmaster. After all, when I confirm updates (etc.), I always send an email that tells the person who submitted Copy to 'please review' the page in question. That means it's very much up to them to find errors right away and get back to me for quick turnaround corrections. Don't come to me more than two weeks later and jump on me like I'm the one who screwed up.

By the way, you might want to check to be sure said mistakes are on the actual page you're complaining about -- and not another webpage entirely... (!!!)

How many times do I need to explain why something at the website needs to appear in DATE order to make sense -- ??? No, we can not just shift things around randomly, because then site visitors will be confused. And while it may appear to be all about the sponsors, we really do want to please the ten of thousands of people currently visiting our website! (The largest number ever, by the way...)

Well, I need to go Tweet for the festival, which I haven't done ONCE yet today. (sigh) I'm falling behind like mad on this. But we do have a bunch of new Followers since I officially took over Twitter -- and we're getting a bunch of Mentions. (We probably would no matter what, but it's cool, even so!)

I actually read here (and dashed off a couple of comments) -- so that was nice! Missing you guys tons!
