What's up, GateWorlders!?
I've missed you so. I have continued to keep an eye on the goings-on around these parts under the "GateWorld" user account, but (while I was hunting for a password) realized that I have not posted under my own name in some time.
You might know that some exciting Stargate news is coming this Thursday during the Comic-Con panel. Keep an eye on GateWorld -- we'll have the whole scoop for you before the panel has even ended!
The other big news from me (which you may have picked up on it you follow @GateWorld on Twitter) is that I am neck-deep in getting GateWorld ready to relaunch. I've been working on GateWorld "3.0" off and on for several years ... and now it's nearly ready for you to see.
That's going to include a new look for GateWorld Forum.
Don't worry -- there won't be any massive changes. Everything in the thread reading and posting interface stays the same; what changes is the wrap-around template skin.
But to get ready for that, the most immediate change is that I am going to re-sort some of our discussion folders in an attempt to simplify the forum home page (which is currently quite a long scroll, which can be overwhelming for newbies).
The main area of focus will be all the non-Stargate shows under the Sci-Fi Stream category. They will all still be there, but we'll sort them into folders (based on what is currently airing and what's no longer in production).
I hope everyone understands that this isn't intended to be a slight against anyone's favorite show, or to make these more difficult to find, but only to make it easier for newcomers to approach GateWorld Forum and decide to join our little family.
Hopefully, after Thursday comes and goes, we'll start to see more newcomers to greet and show some of that famous Gater hospitality!
