UPGRADE

The forums will be upgraded to the latest software version on 9/26/17 at 9:30pm PDT. The upgrade should only take a few minutes. During the upgrade you might experience errors, but they will go away once the upgrade is completed. This is not the upgrade/move we have been discussing for the past few months. This is just normal, minor maintenance. Thank you.

  • Why is the site HelloGiggles always covering DIsney?

    Forgive me if this in the wrong space, but I have noticed dozens of articles over the last few months on various Disney things, always with a very positive slant. The articles are often on Yahoo's home page and often look like a news story but read like a commercial.

    Here is a link of an example - https://www.yahoo.com/style/somethin...215310431.html

    Does anything know anything about this? Are they being paid by Disney? Does Disney own the Hello Giggles site? None of that is terrible it just seems odd to me to act like this is news.

    Light searching shows at least one of their "content generators" has fairly extensive back office Disney experience. I don't have the patience to dig too much further, but it's arguable that there may be a personal rather than institutional bias towards Disney content.

    Though frankly, the only thing HG exists for is to rack up the hit count. It's entirely likely that they've noticed you slap "Disney" on ANYTHING and hits go up. Bringing in people with PR sources back to the main company and maintaining a friendly relationship with them is probably another good reason they focus on Disney.
