I hope this doesn't phail like EFC. I dunno bout' you, but sites like FN and EFC are pretty bare for updates.

But then again, everyone else uses Yahoo groups like a forum too.

So I ask why the heck does Edmonton need all these freakin' sites (or forums, even some useless fringe sites here and there I noticed) when half of em' are poorly kept up on the updates eh?

Updates FYI
Re: efc.org: Major events hit the mailing list where they get a larger audience than just the critters in the IRC channel. When I scratched up a few notes about events (and slapped it against edmontonfurrycabal.org) it was a reaction to a *lot* of noise in the IRC channel from people too lazy to even read topic lines in the mailing list. The initial purpose of the page was a quick-n-dirty FAQ. Kinda selfish, sure, but the noise level did taper off eventually.

Continuing to update the page was just a defensive measure but then I simply got tired of having to bug people for information about upcoming events and got no feedback from people about it. Heck, there was no real indication that anyone had ever looked at it. You might see why there was a declining level of interest.

It didn't "phail" just because it's not doing what *you* want, it served the purpose for which it was built. Maybe at some point in the future I'll do something "real" with it, but right now the only update that comes to mind will be to include a link pointing to Razor's site.

Shooting-star-and-rainbow: The More You Know!

FunFact: The Edmonton Furry Cabal (the entity, not the domain) is a joke that came up not too long after you hit legal drinking age. There's nothing any more serious about it than a general "The Internet is SERIOUS BUSINESS" irony. Neither the Cabal nor the domain is anything to get worked up about.


Re: FN: I'm not trying to put words in Boar Ral's mouth, but the Furthest North site doesn't update much because it doesn't really need to. It's a pretty fixed, repeating event. He puts up info when it is available. He doesn't like speculation or 'meta information' such as updates describing the reasons for a lack of real info. In short (too late!) he'd rather get stuff done and post the resulting important info rather than put on a show for the sake of the home audience.

It is also not an 'Edmonton' site, per se. It's there for pretty much whoever wants information about FN. I'm sure Boar Ral will correct me if I am wrong. He *better* correct me if I'm wrong...

Re: Updates FYI
My intent of sarcasm failed :P

(course my being up late, and thus coming across as harsh probably didn't do me any good here either)
