The UG Penny Dreadful
Posted Sep 5, 2008
Don't post yet - this is a thread in waiting
The UnderGuide is five today...
Posted Sep 5, 2008
and we're celebrating! Check out the front page for balloons and some selected fifth anniversay entries.
We're celebrating all month, and maybe next month. There'll be something in the next , and a Penny Dreadful, A40592522, for all UG writers and UG members past and present. That'll start on the 13th, on the the next journal thread...
To the UnderGuide, and all who write, read, mine, polish and archive her; .
Calling all UnderGuiders, past and present ...

For an upcoming event, pretty soon, we'd love to have (and could really make use of) writing inspired by a particular UnderGuide entry - perhaps a rewrite, perhaps a response, perhaps an entry 'in the manner of'. That sort of thing.
We could really, really make use of this, so if you've a favourite UG entry that just made you feel you wanted to do a sequel, or thought it would be fantastic to write it from a different view point, or wanted to use the style on your own content... please email the UG group or UGeds with it, or leave a message on h2g2 with a link (preferably email though).
There is a deadline - September 5th, possibly a little leeway on that but really not much.
And keep a look out for more here in early September .

Even the most seriously together guy eventually runs out of hands - having been juggling life, the UnderGuide and everything else he does around h2g2 in a way that seemed frankly improbable to most people looking on, Matt is stepping down as Editor. He'll still have his fingers in many UG pies (so there's no need for a whip-round for a carriage clock or anything).
I'm writing this as his replacement, a few days after having had explained to me exactly what - and how much - it was Matt did around here. I've finished with the hysterical laughter now and the hyperventilation has died down, so, as soon as I find my way out of this closet, I'm going to get out there and give it a go.
Out to Lunch
Posted Sep 26, 2005
Sadly, Ben, long term freedom fighter and QA specialist has found herself stuck at the luncheon table with no end of dignitaries and horses doovers to munch through.
With her intermittance, the Archivist that does, the Seal that will and the best of a bad bunch, Pinniped ,is stepping into the rather large hole left by Ben. (no, I'm not saying she's overweight, or large framed, not that that's a bad thing, unless she has high blood pressure...uh. I just mean she will be sorely missed.)
So give him the respect he deserves. And loads of fish (and compliments) and he'll see what he can do for you...
