Status of the Site 6/5/09:
We have sent the first 6 designs to the print shop, if things go according to plan look for them to be on sale in early to mid-July. People who donated $100 or more during our donation drive, will be getting emails the minute we have them in our hands, so we can finally send these out to you!
-The article sorting is a bit messed up, and I hope to have that fixed soon. This happened due to a security update.
-Forum Autoban. People PLEASE, PLEASE read the directions when you create an account. The only way you get autobanned now, is if you don't log into the main site first. Logging into the main site automatically fixes the problem!
-Not a Member of Users: This error seemed to be caused from an update, and I think it may have messed up 10 accounts or so. I will be in contact with you if you messaged me about this in the next day or two. Pretty much the problem is that the forum account exists, but a sync error caused your main account to be deleted.
-As of 3:30 AM CST, most of our accounts on Blip are currently experiencing issues. Hopefully it's fixed soon.
-A nightlife site will be launching soon, that will have programming that caters to bars, clubs, pool halls, sports and more. More information will be available when it launches.
-After the bar site is launched look for the much delayed dedicated video gaming site Blistered Thumbs to follow suit. I'm shooting for a late July launch. Blistered Thumbs will clear up a lot of the congestion right now on TGWTG.
-After Blistered Thumbs look for a comics and anime theme site to follow.
-After that it is a crap shoot on what the order of the new channels will be.
-If you think you're good, post your stuff in the forums video area, or in the Blogs. I look at them periodically, and it's really the easiest way for you to get noticed, as my email box is getting rather cluttered.
Our First Convention Appearance:
While this isn't 100% yet, it's getting close. Some TGWTG staff may be at our own booth at Wizard World Chicago, which runs from August 6th - 9th, in Rosemont which is a bit North of Chicago. I'll do another update confirming if we are going soon, as well as tell you what TGWTG members will be there!
Our Talent First Release:
Due to some issues, ill advised actions, and other various events, Channel Awesome has decided to let Internet personality ThatAussieGuy, also known as Daniel Rizzo go. We are upset that it had to come to this, but we wish Dan nothing but the best with his future endeavors. We will not be responding to any details, nor confirming or denying anything, so please don't ask; we thank you all in advance.
With the current issue going on with Blip, I will have to update the site mid-day today. Look for a new Nostalgia Chick video, a video about some things Doug/Gonzo are selling on ebay, and a video from AngryJoe. Late Friday/Early Saturday, look for videos from Benzaie, a new Theme Lyrics video from Doug, and some E3 videos from Game Heroes.
