I will change that top post above this to something else soon - probably a graphic
In the meantime - welcome to Channel9.Club!
I have to go on vacation for 2 weeks - bad timing but i am hopeful of the idea so far - thanks to 9ers and ms staff for trying it out!
It is pretty simple. - enough with the pilots. lets listen to the passengers.
I can only do iframes and wordpress - but ms can have this domain if it likes and perhaps turn over some of the c9 data to us to use - so the channel9 members - can make there own new site (channel9 not updated in 5 years or something) just as a sort of fun project ... a club.
a long time ago - i used to beg for member blogs (back when blogs where somewhat new)
or at least an expanded user profile area.
Alas - after a brilliant c9 launch and a few good years - the hope for that idea faded. In the balmer era - page views were also deemed to be removed - all of a sudden - if you post something you no longer know if people are reading it - only if they "comment" on it
theres a new ceo in town - lets all help make c9 new .. with a grass root idea
SO... the plan is... a) im not going to stop. i will keep at it. i like the idea. it is not going to go away
b) i need help of all 9ers - and i want to feature your widgets or apps - and hopefully USE some that are web specific - i want to have thread views - and there will be a forum - that shows that again.
no more of this - replies only. its why i left. (or watched from afar)
so enough about that - lets make a real community - that evolves and doesnt stagnate - that experiments and participates - not just complains. lets put our names on it - and show who we are.
Its not perfect - it doesnt even use MS tech (cause they dont have a "wordpress" (if they did id use it)
it will change and morph - maybe i can get people into the idea as admins and moderators - maybe the whoe thing can be automated - maybe it can be - anything the community wants it to be - and they can even show it on their own embedded website
