While I've got a minute I thought I'd go ahead and make a official
something that was actually done about a month ago. With a decision
somewhere between careful deliberation and a whim, I've added two
more members to the Faux DC editorial board affectionately referred
to as the Guardians. These two guys got this "honor" for
being hard working guys, who've done a lot for this site, for sticking
with us during times when we didn't even have a site, and mostly
because they made the always fatal mistake of asking me "How
can I help you out?". I'm speaking of Dave Marshall and Mike
Hintze. They are now fully authorized to make site updates, recruit
and approve new titles, and handle all your editorial needs. All
wise acre comments aside, I'm really glad to have both of them on
our editorial team, and expecting nothing but good from this decision.
So I know you're next question... why does one group need 5 guys
with the word editor in their title? Well that's simple, I want
to prevent the situation we had this summer when there was new material
being produced, but Dale, Ralph, and myself were all to busy to
get the site updated. Adding to more people with "keys"
to the site makes that situation that much more
unlikely. Also... this is a big site these days with nearly 600
pages of material. The days when you could ask me or Ralph what
was going on in any given title and we'd know are long gone. And
we want the site to do nothing but grow!
Does that mean Ralph, Dale, and I are planning on disappearing?
Well I didn't plan on disappearing the last two times, neither did
Ralph or Dale. But life happens. Right now I've got a good amount
of time I can devote to the group, but that could change next week.
Ralph's in the middle of a time consuming for-pay project as we
speak. Dale's schedule is just now freeing up a little. We're trying
to put people in place so should any one or two of us need to disappear
again, it won't disrupt anything.
So stay tuned folks. We've got big things in the works for Faux DC!
Thanks always for your continued support
