Website News


22 July, 2009
The Journey Zone has recently undergone a backend overhaul, with many sections being condensed into single pages, defunct and non-current features and information on former staff members being moved into an archive, and the elimination of the MEMORABILIA Feature (due to the impending end of Yahoo's Geocities, which hosted it; all memorabilia items have been moved to appropriate pages within the site). In the process we have uncovered a number of additional interviews and reviews and we encourage our readers to visit those features in particular. After four years, The Journey Zone is still seeking a new webmaster and Editor-in-Chief. Interested Journey fans should contact the publisher at dgolland@gmail.com.

JOURNEY ZONE SEEKS NEW EDITOR-IN-CHIEF AND WEBMASTER

The Journey Zone staff positions of Editor-in-Chief and Webmaster have become available. The Editor-in-Chief manages content; the Webmaster manages style. Although professional experience is not required, applicants should have appropriate experience related to each position. Applicants must also have a love for and dedication to the music of Journey and a healthy interest in the work of their spinoff groups and solo careers. These are volunteer positions, but partial ownership of the Journey Zone will be available to successful applicants after a trial period. For more information, or to forward a CV, please contact the publisher at dgolland at gmail.com.

Message from Journey-Dave:

Dear Journey Zone Community--

It is with great pleasure and in anticipation of exciting new days for our website that I announce the selection of our new Editor-in-Chief, Jenn "Journeyfer" Walker. Jenn brings years of experience as both a Journey fan and a qualified professional to the task of revitalizing our site. Jenn has been a staff member on the site since June, 2003.

While I retain ownership of the site, and hence will continue on as publisher, Jenn will be responsible for the future editorial direction. All staff submissions, be they news items, reviews, Posts of the Day, tour schedule updates, editorials, etc., should now be sent directly to her. Jenn will also be working on some big changes down the road and is eager for your suggestions.

Jenn will be responsible for the issuing of website ID cards for those of you who attend shows and events as Journey Zone staffers. As of now, all previous ID cards have expired, since I designed them to expire after one year and it has been more than a year since I last issued an ID card. Jenn will be responsible for communicating with venues and band management for press pass requests, or she may designate a senior staff member to handle that task.

For the time being, Jenn and I will be sharing the duties of Webmaster--that is, the actual editing of the web page code and the uploading of the edited pages to the site. Hopefully within the next year or so we will have found a suitable volunteer for the Webmaster position, which will be responsible not only for editing code, uploading pages, and maintaining link integrity, but also for the overall appearance and visual style of the site. At that time, the Editor-in-Chief and Webmaster will be the co-managers of the site. For now, Jenn will be managing the site solo, with only a little input from me.

The democratic aspects of the site management remain in place, which primarily means that editorials must still earn the majority approval of staffers, and can be vetoed by senior staffers. Otherwise, they are published as Op-Eds; also, as always, new members of the staff must win majority approval by exisiting staff. And my rule that all submissions by members of the staff be published on the site in some form still holds true.

Please join me in welcoming Jenn to her new position. I'm sure we all wish her the best of luck as she works to revitalize the once and future Journey Zone.
