A recent someone had a slight argument with me saying that the Forums Staff should know the basic knowledge of webmaster and more of a website's development (Webmaster) and processing which is all that he said and almost not true because even though he doesn't mention things like CSS or HTML but those are these things you have to go over with Webmaster and people don't expect Forums Staff to know that they expect web developers to know that we take care and manage the forums not develop it I've tried my hardest to give a more appealing and welcoming site not the best forums site you have entered but if that's what those people expect from me and the fourms staff I guess it's better to give what they want and for them not to complain no more, I don't see how people would expect us with this knowledge we aren't professionals no one is here, since it's a one in a hundredth chance someone could enter this community with that amount of knowledge into development of websites, since after all, it's a gaming community not website authority hour and we should be taking care of the needs of servers in Forums, not the coding that's someone else's job, but I am willing to give terms that and gave me the text preceptionist intention to blindly look for instead of helping.


Webmaster

A webmaster is someone who creates and manages the content and organization of a website, manages the computer server and technical programming aspects of a website or does both.

Companies advertising for a webmaster vary in their use of the term. In a smaller company, a webmaster typically takes care of all the technology related to the website. In a larger company, a webmaster tends to be someone with knowledge and experience with HTML or a more technical person with some programming skills. The technical webmaster runs the server (for example, by managing the creation and authorization associated with file systems) and writes programs or Practical Extraction and Reporting Language scripts required by the website.

In a very large corporation, there may be a webmaster team of people at the top of the corporation who establish the overall corporate site design and policies, arrange the necessary technical resources (working with the people who provide the corporation its network infrastructure), and supervise the design of the corporation's website (which is often done by an outside firm). At division and product levels, there may be additional webmasters who organize and develop the site content and programming for their division or product. In addition, there is likely to be an interrelated effort to create a site design, organization, and content for the corporation's intranet.

At a small corporation, the webmaster may be in charge of creating the site and putting it on a separate company's server or setting up one within the company. The site design and creation may be done initially by an outside design firm that turns the finished site over to the company's in-house webmaster to maintain and perhaps add content within the established design.

CSS


Stands for "Cascading Style Sheet." Cascading style sheets are used to format the layout of Web pages. They can be used to define text styles, table sizes, and other aspects of Web pages that previously could only be defined in a page's HTML.

CSS helps Web developers create a uniform look across several pages of a Web site. Instead of defining the style of each table and each block of text within a page's HTML, commonly used styles need to be defined only once in a CSS document. Once the style is defined in cascading style sheet, it can be used by any page that references the CSS file. Plus, CSS makes it easy to change styles across several pages at once. For example, a Web developer may want to increase the default text size from 10pt to 12pt for fifty pages of a Web site. If the pages all reference the same style sheet, the text size only needs to be changed on the style sheet and all the pages will show the larger text.

While CSS is great for creating text styles, it is helpful for formatting other aspects of Web page layout as well. For example, CSS can be used to define the cell padding of table cells, the style, thickness, and color of a table's border, and the padding around images or other objects. CSS gives Web developers more exact control over how Web pages will look than HTML does. This is why most Web pages today incorporate cascading style sheets.

Yea. See Kai is right on this post here. The website honestly has nothing to do with webmaster at least forum staff wise. The only thing Forum Staff do with the website is use the xenforo ACP which only Head Admins+ have access to as forum staff.

You're right thats why I said Web Master; a bit dissapointed with how this was addressed. I told Kai that I updated the PHP engine to the newer build. He started saying a few unrelated things so I thought, why not address that people who maintain a community's site dont have knowledge in how to keeping the site up and running smoothly. Not once did I say html + css and everything else. That, I dont know where it came from.

So I'm mildy dissapointed in this post, however I still stand with my original point that people who are going to maintain a site should know the fundamentals on how a website works and how to keep it at top speed.

It's been changed, things were read wrong and intentions were driven off due to unclear messages and text preception that really needed to be corrected with a better understanding for me to read, I'm disappointed as well but this post is meant to help not what you addressed also you did mention Webmaster which fundamentally has to do with CSS and HTML that's why it's up there, and this will not be taken in to arguement it's over with and off topic from the original point of this post which is the term "Webmaster" stick with the topic.
