Announcing Changes to 192jarvis Website

Members of the Website Committee have been working hard to make the website a more useful and relevant communications tool for residents of 192 Jarvis. We’ve introduced a couple of changes that we’d like to bring to your attention:

crane1First, it is no longer necessary to log into the site. Most of the site has always been “public,” with only a few pages and posts restricted to residents of 192. We decided that this was not really necessary, as the previously restricted information did not include private information about residents or the management of the building (e.g, fees). So, everything on the site is now available for all to see. This will simplify the site and eliminate the need for log-in names and passwords.

Second, it is now possible for residents to submit posts to the site. Until now, it was necessary to submit posts to the webmaster, who then often needed to retype the text. With the new “Add a New Post” tab (found above), any resident or building committee can submit a post. To help reduce the chance of junk postings from outside the building, we will need to approve your first post. After that, your posts should appear automatically.

We will continue to send periodic email alerts of new posts, so you won’t need to keep checking the site to stay up-to-date. If you haven’t already sent us your email address, please drop us a note at webmaster@192jarvis.com. You can always unsubscribe to the alerts, if you so choose.

As always, we welcome your suggestions for the site,

The Website Committee: Margaret (903), Michael (903), Neil (1003), Geoff (1102) & Roy (902)

 

Website Committee welcomes a new member

The website committee is pleased to welcome a new member. Geoff (1102) has agreed to join the committee to share his ideas about how to develop the site. We welcome other residents to join, as well. Computer skills – while welcome – are not required. Website Committee members are: Geoff (1102),  Margie (903) Michael (903), Neil (1003), and Roy (902).

Are you getting our email alerts? You might need to check your Spam folder

We send periodic email alerts to residents of 192 Jarvis who have registered with the website. The alerts notify you of recent postings and changes to the site, so you don’t have to constantly check the site to see what is new. A few residents have noticed that their alerts are being tagged as “spam” by their email software. The messages are sent to their “spam” or “junk mail” folder. These residents do not realize that they received an alert.

We send an alert every week or two, so if you are have registered for the site and have not been receiving a periodic email alert, you might want to check your spam folder. You should be able to mark the message as “not spam.” If the problem continues, we’ll change the way we send alerts.

Please contact us at webmaster@192jarvis.com if you have any questions,

Roy (#902), Neil (#1003), and Margie & Michael (#903),

Website Meeting notes – Nov 6, 2012

The website committee held a meeting with condo residents on November 6, 2012. We heard the following points:

  •  We need to consider how the website will be used  for private communication (matters of interest to residents) and for public communication (matters of interest to non-residents). Discussions about what constitutes public/private information will require on-going consideration as the website continues to evolve.
  • There needs to be a webmaster who is responsible for administering private domain access and for overseeing web updates and content. The email address of the web master should be clearly available on the website so people can send information directly to that person.
  • We need to continue to add more content. The website could be used for regular Board updates; to provide access to club and committee information; to announce upcoming meetings and events; to provide links to local services and amenities; and to post other information relevant to residents.
  • We need to think about setting up public & private domain Access.

Following this meeting, the website committee will

*set up public and private domain access to the website

*Post email addresses for webmaster, Board, and Condo Committees

*continue to develop the website and seek input from residents for ideas about new content
