I just came back from a special church website meeting called specifically to ask for design changes.Â The committee said, “We want you to do this!”
I said, “I can do this, but if I do, you lose that.”
Silence.Â Head scratching.Â “Oh.Â But we really like that.”
I nod my head.Â “This and that are attached*.Â If I remove the one, the other goes, too.”
More silence.Â More head scratching.
“Okay,” they decide.Â “No changes.”Â For now.
Amoeba told me about Ambrose Bierce’s definition for elephant.Â I am keeping it in mind to comfort me through the church website design.
ELEPHANT, n. a mouse designed by a committee
*They wanted me to remove links, but keep pages.Â Okay.Â But without the links, how does one get to the pages? Â O_o
But really, they aren’t as silly as they sound. Because I don’t have any of the links activated (I have no content yet) they didn’t understand the function of the left sidebar.Â I think they’re happy — for now.
