I'm sorry, but our blog is something we hardly ever talk about around here.
Have you ever seen this post? Isn't it helpful?
Well, there's this little issue. The resources for BlogOverflow are going to be decommissioned (to some degree) so we have a few options:
we can either keep the site branding as-is, but make everything static, so nothing ever goes away, and it never changes either,
or we can setup a new site somewhere else and they can give us a dump of the data and we can stand it up over yonder.
So let's talk about the brass tax.
It's a really shiny idea, sure, but as with all taxes, we have to pay the piper at some point. And the thing is, the most prolific of the posters here had blogs before they became known here (or they were known here because of their blogs, ya know, whichever) so most of our more well-known authors don't really get a lot of air-play out of the blogoverflow platform.
So, these are the options:
1) We re-start the blog concept for dba.se, we gather several writers, we all make commitments to add something at a reasonable time-scale (with 10 invested people writing one article a month we can do a post every 3 days, that's pretty active)
2) We just say "it was a cute idea but .... I've got other fish to fry, sorry charlie". No harm, no foul.
Ok, vote below with upvotes. Downvotes don't count. Most upvotes by October 31 carry the decision. I'll take the mantle of getting us onto a new site if that's what we decide, but that's only as a default so someone can own things. If someone else wants to own that I'll definitely let them.
