Transferring in the next few hours…

In the next few hours we will be moving over to the new software platform. Once moved we’ll be free to open the sorely missed comments zone again. Although our readership figures have remained relatively bouyant, we’ve missed your company and robust challenges to Slugger’s good authority. In the meantime, can I ask all bloggers to refrain from blogging until I can give the all clear! It will make Big Blog’s job a lot easier and expedite matters more quickly.

Update: all tests are complete, and we are going for the transfer today. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to transfer standing comments, so whilst we’ll have all the stories complete, we are going to have to jettison some great work from the comments file. The Blogroll will go missing for a while too, but will gradually re-instated.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
