The [[Web Team]] looks after the [http://freeculture.org/ Web site], [http://wiki.freeculture.org/ wiki], [http://planet.freeculture.org/ planet], and [http://freeculture.org/blog/ blog].  It can normally be found lurking in our [[IRC]] channel.
#REDIRECT [[Category:Web team]]
* ''Bugs'' can be filed on [https://bugs.launchpad.net/web/+bugs our bug tracker] on Launchpad.
* ''Status'' like emergencies or downtime are tracked on http://fcostatus.wordpress.com/.
==General responsibilities==
===Keep the website functioning===
Nothing on the current website should break.  Our pages must continue to be accessible, and software must continue to work.
* Accept bug reports.  We must have a way for people to tell the webteam what is broken
* Fix the bugs.  There must be a way to assign people to bugs and get them working on the bugs. (and determine when the bugs are fixed, and close the bug.)
===Add functionality===
When the organization needs the website to do new things, the web team must figure out how to implement these new mission objectives.
===Make the website prettier and more user-friendly===
* Graphics design - this may eventually belong to a separate Graphics team, but until then the web team will have to handle this themselves (or use friends and acquaintances).
* Reorganization - If the website is difficult to navigate, content must be moved around until we have a clean, logical structure
== Process ==
* Active members should idle on #freeculture whenever possible.
* For statements that need to be recorded, like when you make a change server-side, ''always'' send an e-mail to the webteam mailing list.  It's important we all have a copy of such things for reference.
* Active members should be part of our Launchpad bug tracking network! If you are not already a member see [[Webteam Bug Tracking]].
