Start off with the main project page, at the Members’ Website Project page. At the bottom, you can see some example screenshots of each type of website that is being hosted on the project website. If this is of interest to you, then go to the ’s Members’ Websites Project (MWP) page for full details.
Check out the contents box to the left and explore the Types of website and the Project history for some background. Then go to Full list to visit some more of the MWP websites run by fellow Guild members.
Now you have decided to participate and have selected which type of website suits your preservation requirements. Where do we go next? This will require your logging into the Guild website as a member. Then go back to Members’ Websites Project (MWP) and check the contents box to the left again; now there is an Application Form link. Just fill in the form and do read through all of the Terms and Conditions: they are important. Click on Submit and the MWP team will get in touch with you by email.
Let’s assume that you decide on Type 3, which uses TNG, and continue on.
Once your application has been received and accepted by the MWP Project Leader, the information will be forwarded to the TNG team for action. That team will activate a new website, using your registered surname of study, and the site will be: surname.one-name.net. A new instance of TNG will be created for you, with a waiting but empty database and a starter homepage. The TNG team also sends out a congratulatory invitation and starter instructions.
A series of tutorial articles have been published on the TNG project blog page, which you can find at ONS Analytics. There you can find current articles on the front page and more under the How to/Recent Tutorials tab. The articles are sent to TNG users weekly in an e-newsletter and also posted on the Guild’s Facebook and Google Plus sites.
