A place here for us "workers" to communicate with each other would be swell...
this is just a quick announcement to let you know that things have been
improving a bit within the www.blackrockcity.org extranet world. there
are a couple of recent developments that you should be aware of:
- the 'team roster' feature of the extranet, which has been so slow as
to be practically unusable, is now MUCH faster. like, 30-50 times
faster. the rest of the system is a little quicker too, but it's the
roster that was the biggest problem, and that showed the most
improvement. check it out... it's definitely the best way we have to
maintain the contact info for the people on your teams... and you should
encourage all of the people on your teams to visit their extranet
profile and make sure that their info is current.
- for a while we've had a couple of recurring "login" problems. some of
you may experienced this... sometimes you'd KNOW that you typed in the
right password, but you still couldn't get in. or maybe you got in, but
the first time you clicked on something you were brought to the login
screen. or, maybe, you got in, but it looked funny... it didn't have
any graphics or colors at all. well, we've fixed ALL of the known log
in problems. repeated testing cycles have shown that the problems have
been resolved and can no longer be reproduced.
if you ARE having a problem logging in, it's almost certainly a
password problem. the first thing you should do is contact the
SuperExtra liaison for your team. if you don't know who that is, you
can send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org", and the helpful
grover at the other end of that alias should be able to hook you up. if
you forget all this, there is a link right on the extranet login page
(entitled "forgot your password/User ID?") that will provide all of this
information whenever you need it.
in addition to these recent improvements, we have a LONG list of changes
that we'd like to make to this tool to make it more useful and valuable
to you, the volunteer coordinators, and to the teams of people that you
work with. we're going to take advantage of the relative quiet (around
here) of the winter months, and plan on working like mad to improve all
of our systems, to make things less complex, more convenient, and more
effective. thanks for being patient with us while we've been building
have a great weekend, and i hope to see you at decompression!

I am probably the only one who wants this or maby not. All it would take is a few seconds to throw it in to the main menu but mabye there is not enough hours in the day to do this. If not oh well

but this is getting realy silly and nevermind it must just be to hard to make a new folder. I am so sorry for asking I will not bring it up again. I just figured all it would take was clicking add folder but it must need a majority vote from some secret council that meets once every 9 years so we will wait with mouse in hand for the secret vote behind closed doors...
