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.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
