Changes to the Black Artists of DC WEB Site!! 

Because of recent issues with the BADC Web site we are forced to make changes to the site.  You the reader cannot see the issues only the Web Site coordinator is experiencing these issues.  You may have noticed that the WEB site is not being updated as regularly as in the past, this is a direct result of the issues with the construction and updating of the Web site.

Because of the large amount of information provided to our users and although we have an unlimited amount of pages we can provide you, the performance in the updating of the BADC WEB site has been erratic, forcing the Web site manager to shut down the updating of the WEB site for days and weeks at a time.  We do not expect you to understand, and quite frankly neither BADC Web site manager, our Web hosting, nor our WEB site managing companies, understand exactly what the problem is either.

So the WEB Site will be going through some changes.  You may have noticed that we have lost some of our information from time to time over the last year, this is a direct result of the issues.  We hope the new changes will help to resolve those issues and put the updating of the WEB site back on a more regular schedule.

BADC WEB Site will

  1. No longer keep information longer than one calendar year.
  2. No Longer have separate pages with indexes to prior years
  3. Will no longer list any item that is indicated as having risky links or inadequate information (ie proper links to information)
  4. Will limit graphics on some pages
  5. Will keep items taken from the BADC WEB site offline which can be requested to be sent to you if you are a member.

We hope these changes will not inconvenience you and thank you for understanding.  Remember this WEB site is managed on a volunteer basis so anything you want posted on the site you must give BADC amble time to do so.
