Subject: Mental Athletics Web Site feedback
As you are away until Monday here's the gist of what I will call you about.
Our new boss has seen the Mental Athletics web site and because I update it from time to time, he has assumed that his area is the owner. He has indicated that he wants the humour section removed and other amendments made.
As this is linked from the Archimedes area I believe people think it is part of your site and not part of IT. It is a group wide Archimedes site. Part of my original thinking in placing MAP there was because it is a company wide facility connected with idea generation and other information all linked to Archimedes - this is how it was sold to Ian Davison.
So to cut a long story short I am resisting any demands to change it. Obviously if you want it altered that's your prerogative, but I would suggest that given the feedback, especially connected with the humour element, it stays intact. No one has complained about the humour - I'm wondering what would be the purpose of taking it off.
Let me know what you think.
