The Director of Web and Archives, colloquially termed the Webmaster, manages the day to day activities of the OCESS website and its sub-domains: spacesim.org, forums.spacesim.org, and wiki.spacesim.org.


The Webmaster is a Director in the 2010-11 administration. The Webmaster currently has an ambiguous rank within the Administration hierarchy of 2009-10 and before. The Webmaster is generally a senior rank, as the Webmaster presided over and outranked the Wikimaster (Which is no longer a position) . Although sometimes officially classified as a Director and sometimes as a Subcommander, the Webmaster is between these two levels. This was seen as one of the major reasons that a hierarchy change was necessary, and one of the reasons for the 2010 Proposal to Change the Hierarchy. For the 2010-11 year, the position's responsibilities were temporarily split to create the position Archivemaster.

Source of Power

The webmaster derives his or her power primarily from FTP access to the server that hosts spacesim.org, lisgar.ca, and lisgar.net. This power is granted to the new webmaster annually by Daniel Kekez upon application by that year's Mission Commanders or Admiral on behalf of the new webmaster.

Webmaster Positions

The webmaster director position was split into 3 roles with the rest of the director positions in 2015. These sub-positions only lasted that year, and were reverted to the previous setup in 2016-17.

Webmaster Supervisor

The webmaster supervisor was in charge of the two webmaster sub positions, the wikimaster and the website master, and was the only one with the ftp access to the Lisgar Alumni servers. This position has only ever been held by Ryan Torrington-Smith.


The wikimaster made sure that the spacesim wiki was kept up to date and accurate. This position has only ever been held by Jonah Hamer-Wilson.

Website Master

The website master oversaw the spacesim website located at spacesim.org. This position has only ever been held by Ivan Fonseca.
