A Blog’s Demise

July 25, 2007

Dear faithful galaxy-finders,

It is mainly with relief that I am able to inform you: Galaxy Zoo has gotten together a working forum! Just go to http://www.galaxyzooforum.org and let the fun begin!

Feel free to look back at the blog, as I’ll keep it up and running, but I won’t be actively monitoring it or posting any longer, absent a change in circumstances.

Very best regards,

Salmon P. Chase

Here’s the admin note, guys:   two days ago, we had almost a thousand independent page views, and it’s looking like today will be our biggest day ever thus far… we’re also averaging about 40 comments per day, many with multiple links – so please don’t feel bad if your galaxy doesn’t get featured!  I’m just so lucky to have so many fabulous astronomer-bloggers out there helping!  KEEP IT UP!

P.S. If you noticed a “time-change” on this blog, it’s because I set it to my own time zone.  I know many of you are from the UK, some from Germany, some from Czechia, and others from elsewhere… but at least now the times make sense to ME!
