I couldn't help noticing that a new "warning" accompanies all the blogs.


Blogs are the author's personal space and represent solely the views of the author, and not necessary those of GateWorld.net and its owner. Entries are not edited or reviewed in any official capacity before publication.
I'm curious... Does this mean there's a chance the blogs could be edited in an "official" capacity after they've been posted?

Nope. Just a disclaimer to clarify that, although they are published at GateWorld.net, the authors' posts aren't GateWorld's "official" position on whatever they happen to be talking about. What blog writers publish is their sole responsibility.

Are there any other mod blogs on the way Darren?

Nope. We may expand into some additional fan blogs in the future for carefully-selected, non-GW staffers.

Okay GW Folks...we Blog again...After many issues with changes, servers and whatnot...Our Dynamic Duo has gotten us up and blogging again...BUT where are you ???

Are we not writing fun and interesting stuff? Is there something you would like to hear about from one of us?

Even though the Blogs are our personal space to just spout off about Star Gate )SG-1 & SGA), BSG. and GW stuff as well as adding in our own personal spin...we do WANT to be read :D

So what's up? what happened to you all?

ShadowMaat

Maybe if you made an entry more than once a month, Tame, I'd be inclined to check more often. :P

If I know something's being updated frequently, I remember to check. But when it's a month or two... or three... or even HALF A YEAR Mr. I'm-too-busy-and-important-for-you-peons DAVID, then why bother? All we'll see is the same old, same old, and after a while it gets hard to find new stuff to say about old entries. So there. :P

The "blogs" link could also be a lot more prominent; I mean, who really sees that little link at the very top of the page?

LOL very true we have been lax in our entries and for that I apologize. I do know that Darren, David and Greg are awful busy and it really is hard for them to find time to update on a regular basis. So you probably still won't see a slew of entries from them.

As for the rest of us....well mainly it has been more an issue of the server being in an argument with Blogger and that hopefully has finally been fixed so we can get back to doing more timely entries. But I can't say we haven't tried a bunch and gotten discouraged ourselves. For some it is also just life getting us by the short hairs sometimes as well.

HOWEVER, you are right also ...we need to be more consistent as well if we want you all to come by and let us know your thoughts.

So We will definitely be trying :D


The "blogs" link could also be a lot more prominent; I mean, who really sees that little link at the very top of the page?

Thats a good thought PG15 and I will definitely pass that on :)

are there any suggestions of topics? anything anyone wants to know about any of us (excluding Darren, Greg and David)

Sometimes it is just really hard to come up with a topic that is SG related as well as relevant to the Forum masses. and as I said before even though it is about our personal take on things...we do WANT you to come over and read ...so we want to be interesting :)

Yeah, I know David and that lot are a lost cause, but it was too convenient an example not to use it. ;)

Topics don't have to be strictly Stargate related, do they? Now that Gateworld has expanded its AU subsection and in light of the fact that SG-1 will soon be drawing to an end maybe it'd be better to cover broader topics. For example, what show is good enough or likely enough to fill in the gap in your schedule? Generally speaking.

Even I don't think I've found a show "worthy" of a big level of obsession and with the potential to be as far reaching as Stargate was (or could have been)- and I've had a few extra years of looking. :P

The pics of your gardening exploits were nice, too.

I suppose carefully worded stories about some of the more colorful "victims" of moderation would be out of the question, eh? ;)

Well originally we did try to keep our entries Stargate or at least Gate World related in some fashion with a minor deviation now and again.
However, that definitely should be considered with SG-1 finishing its run and there is only so much SGA all of us can talk about as well as GW. I would think that any of the shows currently on the Gate World Network would definitely be up for discussion and I like your idea about what OTHER shows could fill the gap once SG-1 is gone.



Even I don't think I've found a show "worthy" of a big level of obsession and with the potential to be as far reaching as Stargate was (or could have been)- and I've had a few extra years of looking. :P

I have to agree with you here after SG-1, BSG came the closest for me and yet now it too is ending its run. But this too is another excellent topic for a blog entry :D



The pics of your gardening exploits were nice, too.
Thank You :D I am very proud of that and I do think we all try to add a bit of our personal life in our entries from time to time. So I hope those are worth reading as well :)

mmmmmmmmmmmm possibly if the person was just *bad* enough OR it happened far enough in the past that it couldn't be easily figured out :D Those are days I know I make a private LJ entry just so I remember how I felt at that time LOL
