The workings of many websites are often shrouded in secrecy and errors are sometimes casually dismissed with users treated as if it’s their fault when something goes wrong. Here at Lodge Inchinnan 1405 we believe this does not serve the best interests of our masonic brethren and visitors and therefore publish our website changelog.
Our policy from day one is to disclose everything we do, with the exception of security based processes and procedures. We will list on an ongoing basis exactly what updates we make, what errors we encounter, and the steps we take to remedy them.
We will also detail proposed improvements, take note of all suggestions and feedback, and generally make the operation of the website as transparent as possible. Everything will be geared towards increasing the general knowledge pool for the overall benefit of the masonic community at large
We hope to create a team of content managers and assistants and a general wider community to promote healthy sharing of information on all matters related to Freemasonry and masonic ideas and principles. We believe the best way to do this is by open and honest disclosure in everything we do.
We will not leave anyone with their eyes bleeding as a result of mind numbing technical data, but will sanitise technical jargon to make it informative and relevant, and attempt to promote the features we have available on the website and assist others with ambitions of creating their own masonic web projects.
We are well aware thet many of our visitors will not be freemasons and we welcome them with open arms. For too long ridiculous conspiracy theories have surrrrounded freemasonry and we intend to do what we can to show our Lodge in the best possible light, and that means openness and transparency in everything we do.
