Tune: The Addams Family

They’re seeking and they’re geeking
Mysteriously sneaking 🙂
Sometimes they’re just tweaking
The Spiders of the Realm

Their sites can be museums
For people go to see ’em
The info’s “carpe diem”
From the Spiders of the Realm

It’s time to send reports in
For all sites that your supporting
On time* you should be sporting
Thank you, Spiders of the Realm!


* Q4 Reports are due October 15
http://webminister.aethelmearc.org/online-webminister-report-form

Song: Monkees Theme Song
It’s now time….
To send in your news
Please submit the report form
Then go drink some booze 🙂
Hey, hey, all you Spiders!
Queue up the timpani
And type out what you’ve been doin’
In the days makin’ up Q3.
We link to wherever we’re asked to
Code sites and then review
We look through minute details
As often there’s something new
Hey, hey, all you Spiders!
Spinnin’ webs all o’er the place
Catchin’ bugs and preventin’ disasters
From out in dark cyberspace
Include those facts and figures
Due 15 July – by the way
Submit that information
Before your deadline slips away…

Tune: Auld Lang Syne

January’s here my friends
Which means Q1 reports are due
Remember recent change o’policy
So things seem a bit askew

Fill out the form by the 15th, web folk
Put this task right in your queue
Please submit your info on time, web folk
… and now I’ll bid adieu.


October 2018:
(With apologies to Danny Elfman)

Tune: This Is Halloween

Web folk friends of every age
It is time to report through a posted exchange

Go on site and you will see
The place to submit web-words to me

Today is Halloween, tonight is Halloween
Spiders convene under vast starlight

This is Halloween, please do not make a scene
Trick or treat then please fill the short form out tonight

It’s our web, please be seen
On the ‘net this Halloween

You are the one who fills out a report
And then I report to the Society sort

I cannot do this without your deets…
So please take 5 minutes and submit your sheet!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

It’s our web, Spiders be seen
On the ‘net this Halloween!


August 2018:
(With apologies to Simon & Garfunkel)

Hello, August, our old friend,
It’s Quarter 3 Reporting time again!
Fill out the webform and hit “submit”
Then all your information it transmits

Webministers, please complete this simple task.
That’s all I ask.

Type ‘em out…
by the 15th…
of August…


May 2018:
(With apologies to Peter, Paul, & Mary)

Puck, the friendly spider
Lives on fine spun silk
He often codes while on his web
And creates some nifty filk!

He noted time was passing
As reports were nearly due
He did not want to submit late
His info for Q2.

So,
He went to the report form
Entered keystrokes fairly quick
Attached a pic of of his blue card
Then sent it with a “click”!

The moral of this story
For webmins’ters everywhere
Report on time — by May 15th
Fill out the questionnaire 😀


February 2018:

Tune: WKRP in Cincinnati
—————
Spiders, it’s day 6 of February,
Just 9 days left to send in web reports,
Please take some time to fill out information,
And let me know if you need addition’l support.

It’s been three months since your last submissions,
Compliance checks are happening right now,
I’m viewin’ sites for the Blackfox Webbies,
And takin’ time to read things and just browse.

Keep on spinnin’ webs, dearest AEthelmearc.


November 2017:

With apologies, once again, to The Beatles
Tune: Yesterday

Don’t delay.
November 15th quickly comes your way!
Webmin’ster reports are due that day.
So send yours in ‘fore time slips away.

(I guarantee –
Once sent in there’ll be serenity…
… for three months and then we’ll see
the next report comes due to me.)

But for now go here (http://ae.scaforms.org/view.php?id=11597)
And translate some “ohs” and ones.
Next click on submit
And then, yes, it will be done!

Again, I say,
Spin that web and note it right away
I’d appreciate that communique
So your group is squared away!

The deadline’s just a week away……

Reminder: Kingdom Webminister Policies state that if a group does not report two quarters in a row, the link to the local group site will be removed from the Kingdom Website.

New Webminister Policies:
1. If a Webminister has a combined position with the Chronicler in a local group that the Webminister is expected to submit a Webminister report as these are two separate positions at Kingdom level.

2. Failure to report on-time for two consecutive quarters will be deemed as a voluntary resignation and a revocation of the webminister’s warrant.

Thank you for your report!

August 2017:

(Tune: Leavin’ on a Jet Plane)

The car’s unpacked
I’m home at last
Pennsic is done– I had a blast*!
I hated wakin’ up and say goodbyes…
But Q3 has ended
It’s time to click**
The form’s a-waitin’
It goes real quick
Web-folk heed the call–
Please do try!!

Webministers, it’s time to report!
Tell me if you need some tech support.
Let the ones and zeros come my way!
In 2 days submissions come due
As of now, I only have a few
(Oh, please, submit on time!***)

* Full disclosure: I was not at Pennsic , but it fit the filk and satisfied the earworm 

** Report form URL: http://ae.scaforms.org/view.php?id=11597
