    Default Links to this website, requests for

    The ACMOC board of directors recently considered the topic of links to our bulletin board or web site. They delegated the task to the website committee (Joe Black, George Howard, Jenny Penrod) and told us to approve on a case-by-case basis. We are willing to put links up here, and would encourage nominations by our viewers. We think they ought to be of relevant interest to our site users, and offer to link us on their web site. Any requests for links to commercial sites will be reviewed and considered. Below is the text of the minutes of the meeting in relation to website links. GWH

    "3. Placing links on our website. A discussion ensued about whether or not to authorize “links” to other websites from our website. Factors to be considered were mentioned, including the reciprocity of the linked website, the quality of the website being linked to, and whether the other website would be relevant to our membership’s interests. Another concern was how to handle non-construction site requests, and commercial site requests.

    "Jim Clack moved the following resolution, and Don Dougherty seconded the motion.

    "Resolution Number 62:

    "Resolved, that the authority to approve links to our Internet website is delegated to the website committee; that the committee will review all requests in light of quality factors and reciprocity, and if the committee turns down a request, the requester may appeal the committee’s decision to the board of directors.

    "The motion passed and the resolution was adopted."

    Willie, your comments about links made sense, so when the board of directors met on Monday (by telephone conference call), we amended the resolution we had passed about links. It now reads as follows:

    Whereas, ACMOC maintains an Internet website at www.acmoc.org; and

    Whereas, the Internet website is available to the public; and

    Whereas, the club’s Internet website is accessed through a “home page”, from which a user can access the bulletin board; and

    Whereas, anyone can post on the club’s Internet bulletin board after registering; and

    Whereas, anyone posting on the club’s Internet bulletin board can place links to other websites on a “thread” or posting created on the bulletin board; and

    Whereas, the board of directors wishes to have some links posted on the homepage for easy access and greater visibility; and

    Whereas, the board of directors wishes to have control over the links that are posted on the homepage to ensure that they are relevant to the hobby and helpful to the club;

    Now therefore, it is:

    (1) Resolved, that the authority to approve links to the homepage of our Internet website is delegated to the website committee; that the committee will review all requests in light of quality factors and reciprocity, and if the committee turns down a request, the requester may appeal the committee’s decision to the board of directors[.]; and it is further

    (2) Resolved, that with respect to the posting of other clubs’ links, the committee will authorize the posting only if the other club offers reciprocity in posting a link to our website; and it is further

    (3) Resolved, that with respect to individuals posting, all such individuals must be members of ACMOC; and it is further

    (4) Resolved, that with respect to businesses or commercial enterprises wishing to post, that they too be required to be a member of the club.


    As for the change in magazine editors/printers, I have the impression that Jeff Huff and you discussed it at the Brooks show. I hope you (and everyone else) enjoy the magazine that just came out.

    Swishy, it is Thursday morning in colorful Colorado. I'm looking over my e-mail, getting ready to shave and shower and face the day. I have read your response above and like the suggestions. I've got a lot of clerical work to do sometime today on the computer, and I'll send a memo to the website committee with your suggestions. These are the first suggestions we have received. From a brief review, it appears that the suggestions are sites that are owned by members of ACMOC. GWH
