  • I know I have mentioned this a few times and I don't want to sound like a broken record but I keep having multiple blogging issues.

    My posts don't appear on the front page and all my current posts that were on the front page have now disappeared.  Also it says I have 0 blog posts on my home page, when in reality I have 4. 

    It is one of my favorte new features so I hope it is running properly soon.

  • Thanks, we are excited about this feature as well, and it is definitely our goal to have this working for you as soon as possible.   I can't say exactly when, but it is a very high priority.

  • That's great Sean.  My I don't see my blog either.  On another note, I can't change the what are you doing message in my profile.  I know you guys got alot going on, thanks for all the hard work!

  • The status update is fixed but not yet deployed, should see that working no later than tomorrow (we have to wait to push the files until we are off-peak hours, since the site will stop temporarily).

    As for the blog issues, I just made sure we have it properly assigned and we are working in it.

  • Thanks so much for the fixes so far. The site is awesome, and all the little bugs seem to be getting knocked right out.

    Not sure if this would be helpful or not, but FYI, my blog isn't showing up either.

    Thanks for the encouragement!  Good news to all, we may have found the reason why your blogs aren't showing up and should have this fixed very soon.  Hope you have your content ready, because your blogs will be on the home page soon.

  • I wanted to ask regarding blogging, what is GI's general rule relating to using images for your blog?

    For instance, I wrote a review regarding the anime Hajime no Ippo, I originally had an image up from I think the movie poster accompanying the blog, however I pulled it down because I was unsure if my use of it constituted fair use. The last thing I want to do is cause myself or the site any legal problems.

    The difficult is easily done; it's the impossible that takes a little while

    Many thanks for checking with us on that.  As a general rule, it should not be illegal to share a movie poster, in fact, it's free advertising, so I don't think they'll mind.  Images, especially if you can find it on a website already, is typically considered public domain.  Some exceptions would be misuse of logos, unofficial screenshots of movies, games, etc. (things that aren't yet released, especially).

    More than copyright/legal issues, the big thing with images is more of a responsible use of content - meaning, nothing excessive (keep it PG, MAYBE PG-13). 

    As a disclaimer, I'm not a lawyer by any stretch of the imagination, but I do know that a poster, as long as you are not altering it to deface it, should be fine.

  • Kollar told me you guys were aware of it, I just wanted to double check on the status of posts appearing as new after you edit them? Jumping to the top every time I edit one of my posts will step on a lot of toes in ways that doesn't amuse me.
