I have not been publishing my posts for a while because I have had a lot of stuff going on lately, but I am back. This is the first in my on going struggles with people.
I don’t know if I ever said that I was a webmaster for a not-for-profit organization. I have been the webmaster for the last 7 years, when I was still in high school. For the last 7 years I have been trying to better myself by learning how to code different things and become a pretty good web site designer. I had done everything myself. Along the way there were a couple of people that offered to help me, but they never lasted. Within the last couple of months there have been a few new people added to the board, one of which I work for at my regular job. She volunteered to HELP me with a redesign and make over of the website. Begrudgingly I accepted the help, because I have been doing this by myself and it would be nice to have someone help every so often. However, I was a little leery because she was supposed to be HELPING to maintain the departments website, but the other person who is the other person assigned to it has been doing all the work, go figure.
Now she had suggested moving our domain from the place we had it to someone new because this new place would let you update things as if you were posting something on a blog, instead of using dreamweaver because “it’s too hard to do anything.” By the way did I mention that she has a degree in web design and graphical production, both of which require knowing and using dreamweaver. Anyway, she got her way with that because the president of the organization said “I want this done quickly.” This meant that this had to be done the day before. So we went through with the transfer. Transfers usually take any where between 1 to 3 days, but they tell you that it could take up to 10. So a week and a half later it still wasn’t done. Gee that could be because someone, not this author, gave the wrong authorization code. That problem was settle and I was given the password for the account so that I can get in and make some changes. Well last Saturday I was making changes and they were small changes. I didn’t think that they were very dramatic. At approximately 11 o’clock the next night I received and e-mail from this lovely that I had ruined her whole day because she had to go in and redo everything that I had done. I responded with an e-mail that pretty much called her all kinds of stupid.
I next tried to go in and make edits a few days later which would be this past Thursday. Well I was locked out and after asking for the password through three different e-mails that included her, the organization president, and my mother (who also happens to be a board member) I got an e-mail from the president of the organization that said that she would be in charge of the website for the summer and that no one will be getting the password until that time.
Now tell me, who is in the wrong, me or the other two?
