Hey guys I would like to hear your input on several things. Please hit the jump for more...
A proposition to all Anonymous commenters: I saw several Anonymous comments with a name at the end of their post. This would greatly improve the discussion. If you post as Anonymous just because it's easy that way or because you don't want to use the other possibilities, please just write a name at the end of your comments with which everyone can recognize you. Of course it doesn't have to be your real name.
First of all there's been plenty of hate recently in the comments section. As I posted in the comments, any comment with even the slightest insult towards another member will be deleted. No matter if he is a member or Anonymous.
Sorry if sometimes I miss some of these comments. There's been plenty of news and comments lately and with the blogger system it is hard to track things. Actually the other comment system that we've tried a few weeks ago had a great moderation of the comments but unfortunately it had some other issues as you might remember. Also have in mind that I'm in Europe and my time zone is 10 hours ahead of the US.
Nevertheless right now I'm looking for a second author for the blog to help me with the news and the moderation. As you know the real filming starts just in a few weeks time and there will be even more bits to cover.
As some of you might know I work as a digital compositor at a post production company. We're currently doing the post on the new Street Fighter movie which will air on Machinima in May. So I'm not doing this blog for a living. Still some ad companies contacted me if I want to run their ads and of course I didn't turn them down.
Now here I want your help. I read that some of you had issues with the ads. I didn't agree to have any ad bars and pop up ads on my blog. Thanks for pointing that out to me. I contacted the ad company and asked them to remove any bars and pop ups. I hope they will do that on Monday.
Also I read that some of you are having issues with the loading time of the blog. This is not right. I've tried it on several different operating systems and it loads pretty quickly, below 2 sec. Do you have slow loading times on your mobile devices? Do you have any security alerts when visiting the site?
Any comment and recommendation will be appreciated. Please state your opinion. I'm trying to make this place better for you.
And please respect each other's opinion in the comments. I'm really surprised at the rivalry between OT, PT, EU or whatever Star Wars fans. It shouldn't be that way. If things gets worse I'm going to suspend the anonymous option.
Edit: I found the option how the remove the pop up banner on your mobile devices. It should be OK now. Sorry for the trouble.
