Ranti and Davin,
I would also really like a forum for MSU web masters. There's a thread
germane to webmasters already on the IT Exchange forums (
http://forums.msu.edu/showthread.php?t=55 ). This isn't specific to MSU and
could be public.
Are there any topics that should not be public, e.g. that might compromise
Many topics might fall both under "webmaster" and "IT Exchange" (e.g. Apache
vs. IIS). Should some kind of FAQ/Policy be written about which topics
belong in the webmasters forum? Or is cross-posting ok?
Who ever sets it up, I thank you in advance!
