Q: If there is not an alumni site for my mission, can I create one, and how?

If someone is not currently maintaining an alumni site for your mission, you should feel free to start one yourself. To do this you do not need:

  • Your own web server
  • An internet service provider that gives you space to store web sites
  • A permanent internet account

However, you do need:

  • A love for your mission and the people you served
  • Enough time to design an effective mission alumni site and dedication required to continue to maintain the site in the future, being responsive to the requests of your fellow alumni
  • A working knowledge of HTML coding (or a willingness to spend some time learning it)

If you would like to create a Web site (whether you are creating a NEW site, taking over a CURRENT site, taking over an ABANDONED site, or simply TRANSFERRING your existing site to our servers, please go through and follow our "Hot to Set Up Your Site" checklists.

Q: Does the LDS Mission Network seek sponsors?

No. It was decided early on that mission.net would be completely independent, operating solely on the contributions from alumni page owners. Not even Deseret Book, who hosts the LDS Mission Network, puts their name on the site.

Q: How is the LDS Mission Network financed?

The labor involved in maintaining the LDS Mission Network Servers, as well as the individual alumni sites, is contributed by volunteers.

There are additional expenses that are financed by voluntary donations from alumni site maintainers and alumni.

Hardware for the mission.net server has been provided by Chris Hardy, with contributions from many alumni site maintainers and anonymous contributors. Connectivity for the mission.net server is provided by Deseret Book.

Ldsmissions.net is hosted by a commercial hosting service, and provided by Brandon Pulsipher.

Future expenses, including any new administrative costs that have not been incurred before, will continue to be financed by voluntary contributions.

Q: Does the LDS Mission Network seek donations?

Yes! See our Donations Page for further details.There is a general consensus among the current alumni page owners that we could easily put together a good server if everyone contributed $10 each. If you're wondering what you can do to help, that would be a great place to start.
