I was building a webpage for a company who absolutely needed it live the following Monday morning due to a load of press ads going out with the URL printed.
I built the site and put in the images and content and submitted the work to the client:
Client: I am not going to get client approval as they are so easy – so long as it looks good can you go live. I am in later on Sunday so could check it then but just go live once text is in. I need to go now as I have an event to attend tonight so I am just trusting you will get this done – many thanks.
Me: What? Live where?
Me: I don’t have any details on the hosting. I don’t know if I am supposed to be hosting this or if they have their own setup? I don’t even know what the domain is! Do we have access to the domain name and can we even change the A records?
Client: *even more silence*
I bet I get an angry message on Monday morning asking why the site isn’t live and it will somehow be my fault despite me trying to phone, email and text to find out what’s going on.
