    Hey everyone,

    I am still around, just taking a break, Though I will never fully be able to get away. I am addicted. Thanks Lightsabre for helping out, it is much needed.

    I think the header graphics looks great.


    Not fully functional,

    I will add everyone's name to their staff listing. Anyone who doesn't have their full name in their TFn bio, please post it here. I don't think snap's last name shows on his.

    I will be in meetings most of the morning, but I will try to get to the staff page soon.

    Later,

    LS

    P.S. I will be adding Alan's name back to the staff page! Yeah!

    Gang,

    I made another update to the staff page. I put everyone into a database and wrote a quick Cold Fusion script to build the code. So, future changes can be instant versus time-consuming line by line crap.

    Let me know what you all think.

    Later,

    Thanks for the updates. I'll make the changes tomorrow when I get to work.

    I think I'm going to go first names only.

    I made changes again and added Sebulba-X to MW RSA. In doing this I had to retool my script so now the staff is in alphabetical order with exception to the first 2 sections and the last section.

    I'm happy with the layout and it will be much easier to change this around in the future. Please keep me informed of staff changes so this page can remain fresh at all times.

    Anything else?

    The header images were in case we built a listing by position. We may still use those down the road. We're doing some spring cleaning on the server, so I pulled them for now, hence the dead links.

    OK! We got that done..

    Now how about an update to the FanForce FAQ?

    What changes can it use?

    Well there are contact names on it. Probably best to make a pointer to the Staff Page instead, so we only have to change/update one listing.

    Rules, a suggestion.

    Its set up that to form a chapter you need at least 3 people and 3 meetings to become Official.

    There is no mechanism to de-certify chapters.

    What if they go below the minimum of 3 people because people move away? It should be stated they must always meet that minimum membership count.

    More importantly: Once a chapter is Official, it need never meet again! You need 3 meetings to start one up, but what if a chapter just kinda fades.. they technically have enough members, but they haven't had an advertised get together in over a year?

    I think we need to set a minimum activity rule, say at least one advertised event every 6 months. The RSAs are responsible to keep tabs on the local chapter's activities and if they spot the chapter going inactive, either spur them back or de-list them as Official, and the CR for that chapter loses status.

    Thats a start for discussion anyways. Probably some other changes can be made. Any other suggestions?

    A more up-to-date FAQ can be found here. We are in the process of updating the page on fanforce.net, as well.

    Your "decertification" idea is an interesting one, but will certainly require discussion among the FF staff before being implemented.

    Weird, I posted the new FAQ this morning.

    Anyway, I'm not sure what a de-certification will accomplish. Certainly it seems harder to become official then to stay official, however, we should keep in mind the spirit of Fanforce - being a fan and sharing that with others. None of us get paid to be fans (if you do, let me know if they're hiring) and none of the staff get paid to support Fanforce or TFN. So, having inactive or irregular meetings and participation is to be expected. However, we can address the fate of a chapter as being left to the discretion of its members and FF staff. I agree also that RSA's should stay on top of their chapters and keep them motivated.

    Thoughts?

    We have had one CR step down on his own due to lack of activity in his chapter (Jedi Greg Maddux). We let the chapter stay official, and will allow JGM to rejoin us at any time.
