That may be true in your eyes...."people not refreshing it every week with
something new" but there are concessions some people HAVE to make,
unfortunately, that are beyond their control.
In my case, it is the SCHOOL's site and I may not make the final decision
on what appears on our art page...can you believe?! It must be done by the
librarian (who is our resident tech guru) who used to be an English teacher
who MUST okay the wording, etc. After this, I have to work together with the
OTHER tech lady to actually put it on the website...and I have to turn my
back (again, would you believe?!) so I can't "see" the school district
server's secret password being put in to CHANGE the website artwork. It
probably wouldn't be quite so bad if our tech lady wasn't so loosey-goosey
and stepped to her own drumbeat which is painfully snail-speed. So far ANY
changes have each taken at least a week of MY prep time each day. She won't
work before or after school hours since she doesn't get paid (which is very
little, I might add). I can't get angry with them because then they wouldn't
do anything for me...you know how that goes. It would be soooo much easier
if I had control over our art site (like alot of you seem to have) being the
only art teacher at our school, but, alas, I must be "checked out" twice
each time. I'm daily trying to learn the virtue of patience and dealing with
my frustrations about our art website. It's really hard sometimes!
