With the upgrade to IPB 3.4 we will be discontinuing [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/blogs/page__type__all__stick__1"]Blogs[/url], 3.4 is scheduled to land sometime before the end of the year and if all goes well, we'll be upgrading in January. So there's ample time to save any content in your blog, should you want it.

Do it now! :p

Blogs take away significant resources that could be better used elsewhere, we'll make sure there is an added perk or substitute for subscribers when that time comes, but as it stands there has only been 11 entries submitted to blogs in the past [i]six months[/i]. :p

Aww. :( There were a few members whose posts I thoroughly enjoyed reading. But I understand that it's a waste of resources for something so few people use.

If it means better Neowin I'm all for it. The blogs are a nice feature, for the few people who wrote and read them, but they are rarely updates from what I've seen.

I think I posted a few things to my "blog" here. Honestly, I thought that just about anything I would want to write on here would be better seen if placed in the proper forum. The only thing I could think of using my blog for is just to rant so I didn't end up using it much.

I suppose they weren't really used all that much, but I typically enjoyed reading +Dr_Asik's posts. It's nice to read technical stuff written by someone who knows what they're talking about.

We do, and there's nothing to report atm because we won't start adding hacks and a skin to it until it's final. Subs will get a test drive shortly before launch, but that probably won't be before January.

Okay, we understand. I'm sorry to hear that you will be discontinuing blogs. But you gotta do what you gotta do to make this as fast as possible. We need Neowin to be the fastest. Not the slowest. I don't like slow. Slow is as slow as a turtle trying to walk across land. :D But make sure when you upgrade, you keep all the themes like Pegasus, Darkside, Green, Midnight as well as Pro. :) Those are all the themes that we can switch between. And trust me, all of them look very good.

Do you mean the forums or the blogs?

Sorry, should have specified, meant the forum as a whole. I tried to search for a changelog between versions however, i came up empty handed.

I sorta used the blog here but it's something I can easily continue off-site if I wanted to.

In fact if I wrote things people actually wanted to read I'd probably design my own. But it's just the amount of effort required building it. :rofl:
