First Nassau Masonic District
Grand Lodge of New York - Free and Accepted Masons
Freemasonry At Its Best.
Making Good Men Better
HOW COME MY EVENTS ARE NEVER HERE?
WEBSITE POSTING POLICY - ON THE LEVEL
BEST METHOD: EMAIL Your Events (webmaster)
For Fastest Processing.
Also, the benefit of cut-and-paste reduce transcription errors.
Put the Webmaster On Your Mailing Lists - Items Will Be Gleaned From Them As
Received And Time Permits.
DESPERATE: Depend Upon Word-of-Mouth To Get Your Information On The Site, You'll Probably Be Disappointed.
Would You Like A Circular Displayed?
Send A Digital Copy in Any Format. - It Will Be Converted and Posted
With The Quality of the Original. If you give me a printed piece of paper, I'll have to
scan it. This is a hassle, and the Webmaster has been known to be moody. If you mail
the circular in an envelope, the same applies, only it will have creases, too.
As a rule-of-thumb, this site will not be posting commercial ventures
or links to such ventures.
If, in the future, that becomes a necessity, it will surely be related to a
mechanism to raise funding to defray the website's expenses. For
now, expenses are extremely modest and are expected to stay that way.
What about stuff of nominal interest outside of your lodge, such as a
Treasurer's Report, Degree Rehearsal? Well - there is a solution for
that: YOUR LODGE'S WEB PAGE ! Subject to the basic
restrictions of no commercial ventures, &etc., you can submit items that
are quite lodge specific. This is a great resource for your lodge
brothers . . . and yes, this could include some pictures. As always
- your lodge (i.e., Master, Secretary, or their Designate) has to submit
the items for anything to happen
WHY IS IT LIKE THIS?
Doesn't This Seem Kinda' Harsh?
From The Book of Web
In the beginning, the Webmaster sought out lodge events. The smiles were
no doubt genuine, but the information was rarely forthcoming. The Webmaster E-Mailed.
The Webmaster Telephoned. The Webmaster Spoke Face-to-Face. The Webmaster
Then, The Webmaster Had An Epiphony!
If the information were truly important, he reasoned, then surely the
brothers would submit it to him post-haste. If, on the other hand, the
wasn't really of interest to the providing brother, he'd find no need to
go through any effort to spread the news. Suddenly, it was all so clear and
If You Don't Feel It's Worth Any Effort to Spread The Word, You Will
Have Done Your
Brethren A Favor By Not Wasting Their Time Telling Them About It !
Nature and The Universe Are In Harmony.
