Does ANYONE still come here anymore?
Oct 19 2011, 12:22 PM EDT | Post edited: Oct 19 2011, 12:22 PM EDT
It makes me sad to see how dead this wiki has been lately. We keep getting new members all the time, but nobody seems to contribute. I reckon there has never been too much activity here (at least since I joined), but it seems to be getting more and more dramatic these days. Not a single post from ANYONE (!) since season 8 started... I don't even feel motivated to update the pages anymore...

So, if anyone still comes here, please post something on this thread and let us all know you still care about this wiki and why. Remember that everyone is welcome to do all sorts of contributions they want and if you want to be promoted to writer, just ask! Any ideas to eventually improve activity here are also appreciated.

So, is anyone out there?

I'm still here and have been watching the show like a devoted fan even during school :P But when I came on the site I didn't see anybody here and no recent updates so I figured something was wrong. I've had very interesting debates with one of my friends who also watches Grey's yelling about which one is better and I'd actually like to know your opinions:

Burke or Owen (with Cristina - imagining Burke was a possible answer)
George or Alex (imagining George was a possible answer)
Sloan or Avery (with Lexie)

If anybody is up for talking about the new season I'd be glad to join, it's amazing!

Quick question, is this going to be the last season of Grey's? :(

You are one of those people I was most missing and worrying about, SuperJ, because you used to be a big regular here, and then lately you just went POOF! Gone!
Glad you're still on board, then! :)

About your questions, I much prefer Owen over Burke, Alex over George and Sloan over Avery (with Lexie). Quite frankly, it amazes me how blatantly Avery keeps fooling himself with Lexie, despite all the clear indications that Slexie is what it's definitely meant to be.

About this being the last season or not, we fear it might be because of the fact that Ellen Pompeo might leave the show and Patrick Dempsey pretty much already said he would after this season is through. We all know how crucial and central those characters are. However, Shonda seems confident that the show will (and must!) go on even if those two actors leave, so I'm confident as well. We'll just have to adjust.

"i am still here and have watched the show since season 1. i just haven't seen any recent updates especially on the grey's anatomy (relation) ships. "
I hear you, Nikkii212010. However, the thing is that this wiki and this site's format is meant so all the members are able to contribute and make the updates themselves, even though they have to be promoted to writers first. The need for this promotion to happen is to prevent automated spammer attacks as much as possible, so only members certified by the moderators as being actually human can make changes to the pages.

However, there has been little to none contribution and work by hardly any of the members. A big reason why this site has such a rich content is because the host Wetpaint used to have professional people working on it in a daily basis. However, about an year ago, Wetpaint decided to shift to a different format and they laid off all of those hard working and dedicated people they had. The last one of them here was Wild-Kat, but she left several months ago and basically left the site for me to manage and for us all to maintain.

So, this being said, and as you certainly understand, I still manage to keep an eye on this site almost everyday, but I have hardly any time to do any real work here, mostly due to my professional obligations, even though I did many page updates already. I'm just a fan just like the rest of us here. However, and regardless of how big this site is, I'm sure that if several or many of us do a little work here every once in a while, the site can do incredibly better and actually have new and bright content. We're supposed to be a team and that's what I made this thread for. If all of us just come here, see that the content is old and just go away, it will never improve, so I'm counting on all of you guys!

"Just watched the newest episode! Is that going to be discussed here or on another thread?"
I just made a thread.

Oh, and it seems we were all in the "waiting for the other person to post" mode. I'm familiar with this phenomenon :). I checked here every now and then, but I didn't see a thread, and I somehow didn't bring up the motivation to start one.

I use to come all the time now it hasn't been updated in a long time. We are in season 8 and I can't find anything. I use to contribute with the easy edit, then it disappeared and you have to apply to be a writer, I liked the easy edit and seeing how I contributed I would prefer doing that then being a writer, add what I know then have someone come along and fix it for me. I have written anything since 2010. Do you find this valuable?

Thanks for the thread on the episode, Gusar. I knew you would still be here, even though maybe waiting for others to post first indeed. I haven't been able to dedicate as much time to this site (and others) as I used to, so that's why I'm asking for all you guy's help. The site only works if it's many of us and enough people take the initiative to post and make the updates for me. I can't do it alone.

Smileyglen66, as I have said on a private message I just sent to you, I have promoted you to writer already. What it means is that you can now use the "easy edit" button just like you used to, that's all, so I hope you feel more encouraged to participate now. If you want me to fix something for you, just let me know.

On another note, as several of you have mentioned, the site is indeed in dire need for updated season 8 content, specially on the homepage and on the episode guides. If any of you would add and update the contents there, it would be really appreciated. I have even unlocked the homepage so that any of you writers can work there as pleased.
Just follow the patterns already set or create some of your own. Don't be afraid to mess up, because we can always revert to previous versions of the pages if it really needs to be. I'm counting on you people!

I am still here! Have not been much into the show lately (in fact didn't know season 8 had started!) which is why I haven't really been active here. But, it is good this site still exists, and a big thankyou Losa78 for maintaining it (dont give up on us yet lol) Do you find this valuable?

No problem at all, NakedInYourEyes (that's a funny name ;)). You don't have to thank me at all. Whatever responses I get from you guys make me feel better and better about the message I sent and to see that there is indeed still people here who still care.

Some of you have in fact already been big helps since then, specially Smileyglen66 with major page edits around the whole site, and Jordan_Brooks with an important update to the homepage.
The homepage and the episode guide pages are the ones which will need the biggest and weekly efforts, so you guys will make me very happy if I see those.
Any contributions are relevant and appreciated and I will certainly give the proper credit where credit is due. If I forget or forgot anyone, please let me know!

As for me personally, I will be here no matter what, so you guys can always count on me until they shut down this site or at least until the show ends. It's my pleasure.

I have been MIA for a while, sorry, but now I'm happy to be back and I will be posting from now on. I have been a fan of Grey's from the 1st episode. I remember how much I enjoyed post on here. I still care and I and will do my best to keep posting and contribute. Do you find this valuable?
