The costs of domain registration, email, software purchase and
maintenance, hardware purchase and maintenance, database upkeep
and management, and web
hosting are paid for by NARR. All NARR workers, including the
administrator are volunteers and shall not receive any funds
from NARR for personal use.
All database entries for both the membership and rat
registrations are entered into the system manually - there is no
automatic submission at this time. This does cause a short delay between data
submission and the information being published on this site - in
most cases this delay is less than 7 days of receipt, although
during busy times of the year, this delay may be slightly
longer. There are
no plans to add an automatic update feature at this time, as the
problems it would create outweigh the benefits.
Please contact the appropriate member of our volunteer staff, as
this will speed up any needed reply.
