Before I get to getting on today’s update, I want to take a moment to discuss site contributions.
We were recently taken to task in a site comment on our slow posting time for contributions. I don’t think it was entirely fair, as we’ve made it abundantly clear on both the site itself and the bounce-back e-mail that contributors get that it could be a good while before contributions are published. That said, there is something basically impolite about asking for contributions and then being as far behind on posting them as we are.
I’m of two minds on this: one is to not accept contributions anymore, but that not only hurts the site but reeks of “taking my ball and going home” syndrome. The other is to do what I’m doing as of this evening: closing the site to contributions until we get caught up and then re-thinking the contribution process at that time.
Understand that this is a hobby site. I’ve got two stations to be responsible for. Scott has the eighteen jobs that keep The Museum At Bonnie Brae in hot dogs and diapers. Lou’s got to try not to strangle that freakin’ duck for 40 per, Jeff — well, I don’t really know what Jeff does, but he’s on the road a lot, and Blaine’s got a gig that we simply don’t discuss. *coughc.i.a.cough* My point is this: we all have too much to do for this site to become a drag, and it won’t be. I’ll shut it down first.
