Crofton Bowling Club

Website Policy & Practice

The policy and principles of the use and content of the Crofton Bowling Club website are established by the Club President with the Executive Committee.

Website use/content policy and principles

These are the principles that the Executive Committee has determined will apply to the content, and our use of, our website:

Committee Members and other Club Officials will be using it as an active communication tool

  • primarily to, and for, the Club Members
  • but also to promote the Club externally


The range of pages and ‘ownership’ of content

Each website page has ‘content’ (what is displayed/visible on the page), and ‘structure’ (how the page is laid out).

  • The content of each page is deemed ‘owned’ by a designated Club Official (there will be different owners for different pages).
    • A ‘page-content owner‘ does not perform any actual website updates – that task lies solely with the Webmaster. The ‘page-content owner’ informs the Webmaster of a requested content change or addition, and provides the updated/modified content (by e-mailed text, or a soft-copy document, or an image/photo, etc).
    • The Club President retains ultimate responsibility for website content, and may authorise modification/deletion of any page content.
  • The structure of the page, for the content provided, will be determined by the webmaster


What is to be posted?

The principles of what the website will contain are:

  • To our club members, the website will be our ‘online version’ of the clubhouse notice-boards, walls and document folders, plus the information typically available on our previous website, as well as a means of communication to (online) members by club officials. It’s additional to, not replacing, the range of clubhouse notice-boards, folders, etc.
    • All* documentation that we post or lodge in the clubhouse on walls, noticeboards, or in folders, or any official communication to all our members (e-mail or other), will be expected to be posted concurrently to the new website.
      • * Certain document types are not yet subject to this principle to be posted online. Primarily this will be the case for team-sheets or selections, which will not generally be posted to the website at this time.
      • Selected content may be deemed ‘sensitive’, so such documents will be password-protected to ensure they are accessible only to current members
    • We will use our website actively as a means of communication with (online) members, in parallel to all existing communication methods, by
      • ensuring that everything we physically post, or make available, in the clubhouse or as an official (e-mail or other) communication to all members, also gets provided to the webmaster for posting online
  • To the outside world, we will promote our club and provide information as part of a welcome to visitors.
    • We will project our existence, particularly to potential members, provide information to opponents visiting us, to the bowling community, and to touring clubs looking for matches locally, highlight our events locally, and promote our club to anyone else interested in us, or wishing to contact us. We intend our website to provide all the necessary or valuable information about us, and enable occasional users of our website to make contact easily with selected officials.
    • All externally-aimed posters, news-items, etc, will also be posted to the website, to boost their effect.

The list of website pages and their 'content owners' is shown here, and is password-protected, and with attributes that inhibit copying/printing. If required, contact the Club Secretary for a reminder of the password.
