  • Should we be concerned?

    So once again another week has gone by without an article from Al. This means that for the entire month of Febuary we recieved only one article, at a shorter than usual length of 2 pages (instead of the average 4-6). I just want to know what's with the holdouts? Is there just not enough news coming in from the parks? Are things really that quiet? Is Al not happy with the recent expansion of MiceAge (his absences have coincided with the addition of MiceChat, and he never posts anything)? I'm sure that I'm not the only one who has wondered about this. Can Al or someone else within the MiceAge realm provide an answer? Thank you. :bow:

      3. If Al has his update ready to go (ie, not waiting to lock down some info from his sources)

      If none of those are true, then my article will usually run on a Tuesday. But yes, we switch around the order plenty of times. I think I used to run on Thursdays, several months ago.
      This is from a similar thread. I think it helps to explain the manner in which Al will post a coumn. My best guess would be that that he is waiting to get confirmation on some information. There is so much happeneing these days that the information might be changing daily.

      Be patient. His columns are always well worth the wait.
      Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
      I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

        And in the particular case of this week, I *did* have content that was time-sensitive, so Al graciously allowed me to sneak in on Thursday.

          Okay, that makes sense. I don't want to sound like I'll have a nervous breakdown or anything if we don't get an article. I was just curious why there's been so little of Al for the last several weeks. It's been very exciting to see the pics and news of all that's been going on in Tomorrowland. I'm really interested in Al's take of it all. I guess patience is a virtue I need to exercise more of. Can't wait to return to CA in July and see it all.

              I think we should chill and let poor Al have a life. I'm not sure if this gig pays all of his bills (it wouldn't cover mine), so I'd imagine he has other things to do. Take your time Al! Do something for yourself that's non Disney and get some perspective.

                I guess I'd rather wait until he has something to say, instead of getting a lot of updates about nothing.
                And like CO said, he's got a life.

                      Not enough juice to write about. This should be a good thing. Not enough faded paint, not enough bad thatching, no news about Subs, Buzz, or Space.

                        Again, Al probably has an update ready to go. He allowed me to usurp him this week.

                            ORDDU: Well, I'm all for giving Al plenty of breathing space. My only concern would be that he's, possibly, found some other witch to hang out with--in which case I'd be vexed enough to hex!!
