We've been trying to kickstart the SU blog again, and well, it's mostly been tumbleweeds. We've had little to no activity, despite a few well meaning plans to.
That said, networkwide, blogs are going away - there's no formal announcement as yet, though the writing's on the wall. It's not due to lack of updates - it's simply happening network wide.
From what I've been told (and I'll update this if any corrections are needed) we have a few options. Some of the other communities are migrating to other platforms. If we are, SE would provide us with a data dump, and assist as needed. Naturally though, we'd still need to provide content to a successor blog.
They've also said they'll be archiving the existing content with static pages.
While I'd like to let everyone who has ever been involved with the blog know, that's a bit tricky.
At this point, it's probably good to know what our potential options, and ideas of how we're going forward are.
Archiving the site means existing content's there. As things are, that's pretty close to 'status quo'.
If we are moving out - where to? What platforms would work, and who would run it? We'd also need to work out how to get regular content.
Probably missed a few things - I'll update, but feel free to discuss.
