The Webministry

  and Thank you for visiting this website, your One-Stop source for all things Internet (Æther) related for the Kingdom.

It is my hope to update this site regularly with information of benefit to  the  Webministers and the Populace of the East Kingdom.

The Webministry has an “OPEN DOOR” policy. If  you have questions, suggestions or contributions, please feel free to open up a ticket at our East Kingdom Help Desk or send them via email to webminister@eastkingdom.org.

I look forward to assisting you in any way possible.

The Online Presence (Ætheral Realms) of the East Kingdom can only get better with your input.

The key to success is fostering and growing a team environment with all the Webministers of the East, so please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions or thoughts you might have. I look forward to hearing from you.

Please consider visiting our F.A.Q. section, in which I make an effort to answer some Frequently  Asked Questions and provide regular information on changes or updates. Again, I will strive to keep this section updated regularly as things change, new inquiries arise, and new ideas are brought forth!

In Service to the East Kingdom,
– Signore Lorenz Greylever *.:

The Email Box Conversion Project is in full swing. All Kingdom Officer emails have been converted to Email Boxes. Local branch, and Royal Guild Webministers are in the process of transferring the email forwards to Email Boxes.

How To documents can be found in the East Kingdom Help Desk Knowledgebase. If you do not see your question answered there, please sned in the question and we will add it to the list!

As of the Curia Regis held at Birka on January 29th, 2017, East Kingdom Law was updated to require all communications for the East Kingdom to only be through East Kingdom email addresses.

It is a request from the Office of the Seneschal that all Kingdom Officers do not use email forwards to their personal email addresses for Society and Kingdom communications.

To access the new East Kingdom email, please go to https://mail.eastkingdom.org and login with the email address of your Office and use the supplied password.  You can always change the password once logged in.

If you need assistance, please contact your Local branch / Royal Guild Webminister or open a Help Desk ticket with the request being your Local branch or Royal Guild name from the drop down listing.

There is IMAP access available for the Email Service. Directions are found in the East Kingdom Help Desk Knowledgebase.

This service is only for current East Kingdom Officers.

Upcoming Webminster Round Tables / Webministry Hours:

These meetings are open to ALL MEMBERS OF THE KINGDOM. They are part of the Office of the Webminister Outreach Program to offer the knowledge of what the Office does for the Kingdom, and how to participate in the services now being offered to all members of the Populace.

The more that we can empower the Kingdom with needed access to reliable services from this Office, the better the experience will be for every member, be they “Newcomer” or “Seasoned Dreamer”.

I plan to be at the following events with no currently scheduled Webminister Round Tables (Subject to change after approval from the Event Steward):

  • 02/04/17 – at the sign of the Dancing Fox XIX
  • 02/23/17 – 02/26/17 – Estrella War XXXIII
  • 03/25/17 – Mudthaw
  • 05/26/17 – 05/29/17 – Wars of the Roses

if there is no planned meeting, I am always happy to take some time out of my day to discuss the Webministry with anyone interested. Please do not hesitate to find me and ask to chat.

Ongoing Projects

Welcome to the beginning of the 1st Quarter of 2017 C.E., and the  middle of the 3rd Quarter of Anno Societatis LI (51).

(It is difficult to address future plans in either just Society dates or only modern dates, without confusing someone.)

A reminder to please use the East Kingdom Help Desk for all your requests of the Office of the Webminister.

The issue with links being marked as untrusted should be a thing of the past. The East Kingdom now has an up-to-date SSL Certificate that is registered until 2018. If you see any warnings come up on your browsing please check your security settings on your browser and submit a help desk ticket with the website information so that we can look into it.

The Calendar Update Project is ongoing as we work towards a new system. There was a poll sent out on 4/27/16 for Kingdom-wide feedback regarding this, so contact your Local Webminister for details!

The Kingdom Email List Project is in full swing. The East Kingdom server is using the GNU Mailman Listserv server to support the needs of the Kingdom. The Kingdom level ones can be found at https://lists.eastkingdom.org/EmailLists.html with more being added as more Offices migrate from services like Yahoo! Groups. If you are not receiving the emails, your email provider may be blocking them as the East Kingdom server is not showing any errors at this time. Please check your SPAM folder or WHITELIST the *.eastkingdom.org address to receive them.

There is an UPDATED public Knowledgebase for the East Kingdom regarding the Office of the Webminister available at https://helpdesk.eastkingdom.org covering many aspects of the Office. If you do not see your question answered, please submit a request.

The Kingdom Reports Website is available for all Kingdom Offices, Local branches and Royal Guilds. If your Webminister does not have access to this site to make your forms, reports, questionnaires and surveys, please ask them to request the access.

The East Kingdom Website now has:

Additional Projects coming up are the following:

The Website Ownership Project will be starting shortly.  All ‘vanity’ website addresses that refer to an official East Kingdom website will be reviewed and transferred to local Society/Kingdom/branch  ownership.

I am looking into a Document Repository and Management system for the Kingdom. This will be to replace 3rd party services like gDocs, Dropbox and similar systems. If you are familiar with any systems that can be hosted on the East Kingdom server, please let me know.

The ‘Getting Involved – Local Groups’ link on the East Kingdom website has been updated to have a search function and possibly an interactive map to find your Local branch easier. Please test it out!

This website is being reviewed as to how to make it multilingual to be able to support the entire Kingdom, including those groups that speak French. If anyone is familiar with a WordPress plugin that could be used for this purpose, please contact me.

All websites  can now be accessed by their normal addresses. Reminder: The *.east-kingdom.org was a temporary web address and has been completely phased out at this time. Please only reference the official *branch*.eastkingdom.org website addresses going forward.

Some websites are still in need of assistance from their local Webminister to be brought up to date. If you discover a website that is not functioning properly, please bring it to the attention of the local Webminister, or open a ticket on the East Kingdom Help Desk website and we will look into it.

The East Kingdom website is partially functional with missing access to the ADA and Mobile versions. I am working on a new website that will incorporate both versions within the same site. Until then, I apologize for the limited access of the site.
