Other than the occassional newsletter this is the first chance I've had to write something down and to thank all the members, contributors and readers that make this site.
If you're not a member then please think about joining. With your help we can make this the best community site talking about gadgets!. The techies here are continually improving the site to make it easier for you to have your say. These 'blog' things are the latest innovation. They give any member the opportunity to write down their own views and insights into this genre. Hot gadget gossip is always most welcome of course!
Blogs are only one of the tools we have for members though and are ideal for informal ramblings.
The core information available from the site are our article. Any member can write as many as they want. Most are reviews, although they can be about wider issues facing the gadget industry, such as where the game station market is going. As a guideline, if what you want to write would be suitable for a printed magazine, then make it an article. Think about what you want to say and structure your content. To keep the quality of the site up to the high level it's at right now we review all articles and we ask you to make improvements before publishing.
Finally - we have 'discussion forums'. All topic based. These are most useful where you want to ask a question, or want to start a debate.
Well - I guess almost finally. Finally are our newsletters, which we occassionally write, and which we really hope to write a little more often (the last was back in early 2005!).
So, what does all this cost? Well, very simply nothing in money terms. There is a cost of course - it's a little of your time to join in the debate and keep the community moving forward. Without a good core of active members community sites can't exist, so we need you :-)
If you're already a member then thank you!!! If you're not a member then why not sign up?
Looking forward to your continued support of GadgetSpeak! As I say - any questions, then get in touch!
Hi Randal - no! your comment should *not* have disappeared.
I think this is a side-effect of the major software upgrade we've just made to trackback/pingback support to the article library. I believe your comment does still exist, it's just not being displayed. I'll get onto the techies to sort this out.
If anyone else spots something a little odd with the upgraded site then please do let us know.
Found this site a week or so back and have found the various articles useful. I added a comment to mfereday's article about VCom's SystemSuite 6 utility program, generally giving it support. I went back just now to see if there had been any additional comments on the program and I find my response has gone. Is that normal? Maybe they only last a few days??
Happy New Year anyway,
