Or not, as the case may be!

In relation to my thread about the 'Fab News/Events' page, I note that there has been no mention - at least as yet - of the above event on the Fanderson News part of the website.

Yet everyone is encouraged to go to a Ray Harryhausen event! Bizarre.

Could be that the team who voluntarily run the site haven't had a chance to update it yet.

Yes, I'm aware of that...and the 'voluntary' bit.

I note with some interest that the main Fanderson news page has been updated with the sad news of Zienia Merton's passing and the upcoming Twitch Thunderbirds marathon. Interesting too that the piece about the Ray Harryhausen book/event has now disappeared (!). But still no mention of the event in Leicester.

Fair enough, but you did rather seem to answer your own question.

No, I didn't.

I want to know why non-Anderson information gets posted in 'News' when there has been several occasions when information actually related to Anderson doesn't seem to get posted. That has nothing to do with how busy people are or whether they are volunteers or not. That also doesn't imply that I have any less respect for their efforts.

I don't know who you are and I don't care either but - with respect - perhaps you could just keep quiet, ok?

Guys, how about cooling it down a bit, eh? We have enough trouble with people deliberately coming on her to stir up unrest. Surely we don't need the good guys doing the same too, do we?

In answer to the original query, the Harryhausen thing was posted because:
  • we were sent the information
  • there's an Anderson connection in Ian Scoones
  • Gerry and Harryhausen were mutual admirers of each others' work
  • I personally know of a lot of club members who are also fans of Harryhausen's work

As for why the Space Centre event hasn't been featured in the news is much simpler to explain. They haven't bothered to actually tell us anything about it and, contrary to popular belief we don't have time to trawl the internet and/or social media for news.
  • If we're sent information, we'll publicise it
  • If we come across it ourselves, we'll publicise it
  • If a member tells us about something that we've evidently not seen, we'll publicise it (and by tell us I mean e-mail us, not just post on social media about it).

I hope that clarifies the situation.

Nick
