AO Blogs

We are considering removing/disabling the Blogs function of Alfaowner.

From what we can gather, the vast majority of entries there are accidental when members have used the 'Blog It' button instead of 'Reply' or from members who are unfamiliar with the forum structure and have posted technical queries which have unfortunately gone unanswered.

There are a very small number of real blogs and even those have attracted minimal views and virtually zero comments. There's no shortage of specialised blog websites out there with far better features than AO's version and there is no reason why a member who wants to share their blog with the AO community can't link to an external site such as Wordpress, Blogspot or Livejournal for example.

But - we want your opinion. Should we keep the blogs? Place your votes (it's anonymous).

The poll will close in seven days.

If its not being used, kill it off. No point wasting server space with functions that aren't used.

I didn't think anyone used them and wasn't sufficiently interested to find out so, like others, I'd say get shut and save money/be more efficient, whatever, without an unnecessary option.
