Subject:What's a Webmaster? From:"Callaghan, Dennis V." <dcallaghan -at- SUNGARD -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 11 Dec 1995 14:04:48 EST
A friend passed on some Web site info to me which said something to
the effect of "Any problems, call the Webmaster."
Since many of you design Web sites or are otherwise familiar with
them, what exactly is a Webmaster? Is it a real title and if so, what
does it entail, or has this Webmaster person gone on a mad power trip?
And if it is a real title, isn't there a less Dungeons & Dragonish
title that could be used, such as site manager or administrator?
