After many weeks of behind-the-scenes efforts, your Solutions team is proud to present a major update to the site’s look and feel! In addition to the prominent color scheme changes, our pages are now sized for current monitors and laptop screens, for your reading convenience. We’ve simplified our navigation as well, and added a site search box to the home page.
On the home page, you’ll find all of our headlines and those of our partners are available in one convenient tabbed box, and you may peruse our currently featured articles in our nifty carousel. The new blog has a completely new look including easy-to-find widgets for following us via RSS or Twitter.
We hope you enjoy the new look! We’ll be tweaking things as time goes on. Feel free to leave a comment on your first impressions and let us know of any bugs you find.
To help us know where to focus our small team as far as adding information to this site, we’ve set up a survey-type poll on our Live Journal community to gauge how visitors like you use the site and what you think of it. If you have a Live Journal account (or have been dying to create one!), please click on over to our LJ comm and take a minute to fill out the survey. We’d really appreciate it!
Go to the survey here.
The response to our plea for aid in paying our hosting bill has resulted in a deluge of support that’s left the site staffers absolutely stunned and reeling from your overwhelming generosity.
Thanks to you all, Solutions’ hosting has been secured for a full two years and we even have a little in hand to keep on developing our triffid-like pride and joy, the Stargate Wiki.
We absolutely cannot thank you enough. This experience has been humbling. You guys are the best!
Our plan is to make an interactive space on our Solutions site for fans to post and share their constructive editorials, essays, commentaries and reviews of Stargate SG-1 – the episodes, the characters, the team – interactions and dynamics, story and character arcs, slash, ship, realism, NID, weapons, other teams, aliens – any and all aspects of the show are welcome.
We will state clearly from the outset that we don’t tolerate flames or trolls. In fact, they’re the only people who won’t find this blog fun to post in. Get personal with other bloggers, bash fans or actors or TPTB, and your derriere is right out the virtual door, no question, toot very much sweet. If you as a blogger or browser see a message you believe is trollish or flames or gets personal, don’t take it up on the blog and prolong the difficulties. Contact the Admin and we’ll deal with it as fast and as appropriately as we can.
We do expect debate and we do expect critique from thoughtful fellow fans. We do expect disagreement. We also expect respect for opposing or differing viewpoints and for individuals. Criticism must at all times be tempered by that respect and we expect criticism to be constructive. Michael Shanks said that what the show’s creative looks to is specifics and *alternatives*. If a writing, directing or acting choice doesn’t work for you, tell us why, tell us in as much detail as you can, and tell us what could have worked. “It sucked” won’t go unchallenged 😉
Please note that blog comments and entries which breach our rules will be moderated just as our SG1S fan forum is moderated and repeated breaches by the same individual will result in their expulsion from the blog. IP addresses are automatically logged by the b2 software in order to support such measures as reporting the offending blogger to their service provider. We take the online safety and enjoyment of our bloggers and forum members very seriously.
We look forward to hearing your views :
