Your site, of course, does not allow the general public to log into these youth web sites. Nor, I believe, do you allow just anyone to set up an account. Can a local Baha'i congregation, biker gang, gay social club, etc, set up free accounts and use your service? I have yet to turn anyone away and ...

There has been much debate in this thread concerning the legality of YouthMaster using Google Map's API (due to the fact that YouthMaster requires users to login). Google has finally clarified / updated their Terms of Service to explicitly state that implementations such as YouthMaster's are complet...

YouthMaster.org

Alternatively, there is http://demo.youthmaster.org/ which facilitates the tracking of YW PP (and YM DTG) and has the advantage of being online / accessible anywhere. You can also subscribe to receive reports via email.

I have wanted to use online web sites to help me keep track of church information such as DTG and Scout advancement information. The first time I tried one I was told by my Bishop that I should not be using websites to manage church member's information. At the time I was using YMYW.org It is an aw...

boomerbubba, I commend you for such diligence on the various TOS.. I should probably put it on the to-do list to allow wards to disable the Google Map if it makes them feel uncomfortable. On that note, that's generally been my development process for YouthMaster (and other projects) -- release a v1,...

When you say that a Google sales associate would quote "a small fee" for private web sites, are you aware of a different pricing model with better deals? Right. It was about 2 years ago when I last spoke to them concerning the licensing. But it was the fact that we were a small government agency wi...

boomer, The map does render, it's just zoomed in 100% to the ocean off the coast of Africa (0,0). If you zoom out a dozen levels or so you'll begin to see Africa. :) I appreciate your concerns but am willing to take my chances with Google. I've been an active member of their maps API developer forum...

I'm afraid my reading of the Google Maps API Terms of Service is much more restrictive. It says: IANAL, but I think the plain English of that agreement clearly precludes the way you use the API because your site does restrict access to authenticated users. Google allows its API to be used for free ...

Thanks for the feedback! Privacy is most definitely a concern with any web application. I have a question on the YouthMaster FAQ about privacy which advises users as to potential concerns and mitigation. All the system needs in order to function (in terms of tracking DTG, PP, etc) is a name and date...

YouthMaster

Last year I was called to be Young Men's Secretary and inherited a mess of spreadsheets (mostly outdated). As a software developer by trade, I knew there was a much better way to do this. I began work on YouthMaster.org during Christmas of last year, and initially it was just for our ward (who loved...
