What are the duties of a web minister?
The Atlantian Great Book of Law, Chapter 5, lays out the duties of the Kingdom Web Minister as follows.
Duties of the Kingdom Web Minister
The Kingdom Web Minister shall maintain and monitor the Kingdom’s Internet resources and interests to include the sub-domain names, Atlantia.sca.org and the Kingdom email aliases. Monitor the recognized web pages of the Kingdom to ensure that they are in compliance with current SCA and Kingdom policy. The KWM's office also lends technical assistance to the recognized web ministers and other Atlantian branches or recognized groups desiring to create a web presence as needed.
Branch Web Ministers
The duties of a group web minister are really not that different. They're just on a smaller scale. The web minister for a local group will generally keep the local group's website up to date and work with the Seneschal to ensure that credentials are successfully passed from one officer to their successor. Branch web ministers are responsible for making sure that their digital presence is up to date and adheres to both Kingdom and Society policies and reregulations. The office of Web Minister is not a required branch office but it is strongly recommended that any branch which intends to maintain a digital presence identify a person to lead that effort.
Group/Guild/Special use or interest Web Ministers
The Kingdom of Atlantia has a variety of groups, Orders, guilds, etc web presences in addition to branch and Kingdom web presence. The persons identified as the web minister for those resources is, much like a branch web minister, responsible for the day to day management of those sites and their related operations
Can you help us reset or recover a password?
Sometimes. If your website is maintained on a Kingdom resource then yes. We can usually retrieve or reset your various passwords. However, if your group has elected to manage your websites or services externally, for example; using your own hosting, managing your own e-lists, using an external email service such as GSuite, etc, then our options are severely limited.
How do I get a warrant to be a Web Minister?
In most cases, such as for a local branch, getting your warrant as an official web minister is fairly straightforward. Please fill out the warrant request form and provide the requested information. The office of web minister is not a required position so once we verify with your seneschal that you are the incoming web minister you will be issued a warrant for a period of 2 years.
