Thread Name: Tech: Website Dilemma
Subject: RE: Tech: Website Dilemma
You could try threats and extortion, pointing out to the "former website manager" that being in another state does not preclude continuing management of the website. A book we prepped not too long ago used a proof reader in the Phillipines, a Tech Editor in California who moved to Texas midstream, Indexer in Guam, co-authors in California and Washington state, managed from Kansas.

More seriously, you will want to make sure that you have at least an email contact so that the "dearly departed" can answer questions during the transition to new management.

Although (I'm told) running a site isn't all that complicated, looking for a new volunteer with appropriate skills (and/or ego that you can flatter) may be your most productive option.

Do you have a "faithful audience" where you might look for the talent and software? Can you look for interest/ability via your email/newletters?
