For #8 about old pages, you can also look at analytics to see how and why people are ending up on that page. In the case of a popular but expired event that isn't going to be repeated, there may be value in keeping it there to offer a bit of historical perspective. (Was the senior citizen hot dog eating contest in 2007 or 2008? And where was it held?) If traffic is getting there, there's either some interest or it's linked elsewhere on your site in a way that's drawing attention.
I recently got excited to see a domain was available according to these types of domain checkers only to learn when I went to buy that it had been registered long ago. These services get it right most of the time, but it's a good idea to check your short list against a definitive whois lookup service, such as http://whois.domaintools.com/[insert domain name]
Also, what about situations where an email is being read through an employer's network? In those cases, the recipient has probably signed an agreement acknowledging the employer has rights to any such traffic.
Having a preview option before publishing a comment is helpful since some systems treat formatting in unexpected ways.
If you take 10-11 hour days at 6 days a week (allowing for one day of rest) you'll get to 10,000 hours in 3 years. The public ministry of Jesus was three years. He didn't need to practice, but maybe the rest of us who do can take it as inspiration.
Having an honest, detailed job description for the volunteer position with a specific time period (such as a year) also helps find the right volunteers.
By following this sequence, your metrics not only help you assess your own ministry, but they also make it much easier to get support from your pastor and to motivate your volunteers. You can clearly show how you're contributing to objectives that the entire community can relate to rather than focusing exclusively on technical stats without that grander context.
