R.I.P. User Blogs

Dear users,

We have decided that it's time to phase out our User Blogs feature. The Blogs exists for almost 2 years and only 18 entries were added. Because the use of it doesn't weigh up to the trouble it causes us (e.g. maintenance), we've decided that it's time to say goodbye to this feature.

Because there might be some valuable information in the blogs, we're giving the chance to authors to "backup" their blogs. Which means as much as: copy/paste the text and save it to your own computer, so you can repost it on the forum for example.
Please backup your blogs before 20 November.

After that, the blogs will be phased out.

If you want to say goodbye to the User Blogs, you can use this topic.
Missing a feature on the forum? Please let me know by sending me a PM :)

Actually, it's perfectly possible, though it is a bit high.

For example this blog entry: blog/KaMRemakefan/game_replaysvideos_of_kamremakefan_b-27.html

Such an entry works great on Google and I'm sure lots of views were caused by people coming from Google. The forum gets 7000 à 10.000 page views a month.
