Who reads this Blog? And other administration issues

Last year we closed this blog because we had some issues with "trolls" - people taking over the blog, changing the password, and writing posts hostile to critical mass.

As a result, we made it a "team blog", which means people can be invited to become members of the blog, or administrators of the blog.

I originally started the blog in Nov 2005 to help publicize and provide a forum for discussion about critical mass in Ottawa. This has worked to some degree, but a lot of critical massers do not use the blog. On top of this, I have left Ottawa, so now there are a number of others who administer the blog. But it takes a lot of time, and this seems to be falling on only a few people's shoulders.

The question is, are people still reading this blog? Does it serve a function?

If it is serving a function, is its current status of updates, etc., sufficient?

Do we need more administrators or members?

it's the number one hit for "ottawa critical mass" on google, so i guarantee people read it.

the real question is, does anyone read the ottawacriticalmass@gmail emails? i've sent a few messages to it, and never heard back.

i'd be good to keep the 'next critical mass' date current.

i always see your comments - do you want to help admin?

i agree about the gmail. i don't know what happened. i don't have access to it anymore (the password was changed), and i don't know who does! i don't really want to put my personal email on the blog though - also i'm not in ottawa anymore!!

I didn't know that a blog existed, but now that I do, I'll be checking it regularly.

I just sent out a mass email to all my Ottawa peoples, so hopefully this will get them off their lazy asses and out into the Ottawa streets this Friday.

That's my little contribution to CM.

Unless it rains, I should be there in a few hours with my rollerblades and maybe camera for my first Ottawa CM!
