Log Analysis for
1999 Yearly Figures show an outstanding 100,426 users requesting 310,586 pages. It's difficult to do a true comparison as we did not purchase the logging software until mid-February '99, but a rough estimate is that we nearly tripled our visitors/hits from the previous year.
for the coming month
Policy Discussion Committee: The Policy Discussion committee consisting of Jane Holman, Pam Frantz, Bill O'Hara Felker, and Renee Oldham met to look at the Terms of Service Agreement. Jane review the current policy/discussion rules. Rodger Smith suggested looking at the "Acceptable Use Policy" used by the Department of Education.
Goals/Objectives Committee: This committee consisting of Bill O'Hara, Pam Frantz, Renee Oldham and Jane Holman will meet to establish goals/objectives. Goals/objectives will assist Jane in giving her focus for the upcoming year. It will also be an open item for the next meeting.
She discussed the possibility of doing an "Action Ads" section for a fee (i.e., according to what you sell). If pictures are used, size may be limited and Waynet would be in competition with the Palladium Item. Rodger Smith had questions about time consumption. John Weber suggested setting up a committee to look at the ad issue. Issues regarding our ISP host were discussed.
Jane would like to take "Talk of the Town" live this week. It was decided that the old "terms of service" would be used until there were enough board members present to take a vote.
The remainder of the meeting was spent brainstorming on the vision and mission of Waynet. Jane will email everyone with draft copies.
Respectfully submitted, Tricia Shrider for Steve Reynolds, Secretary
