IT’S TIME FOR CHANGE . . . AND YES I CAN – BUT NOT THE WAY YOU THINK:
The popularity of Galganov.com has forced me to make serious and costly changes to the Website.
Over the past year, from time to time, I’ve asked visitors to Galganov.com to help out financially, to help cover some of the upgrade costs to the operating system, so we could accommodate the growing number of visitors.
But now . . . with the ever-increasing volume of people logging-on to Galganov.com, and the age of the original operating system and the Server that Hosts the Website, we can no longer just tweak the Site to keep it going.
So . . . over the next few weeks, you will start to see some changes to Galganov.com, which are long overdue. But, will not change the overall look all that much.
What will change will be some of the functionality, which will allow me to add links and photos to the editorials.
Very often, readers to Galganov.com question how I came to the comments that I write as fact, and ask me to validate what I write, or are just interested in reading more on any specific issue.
With the links, readers will be able to visit some of my sources of information directly, without having to look for them themselves, or depend upon me to direct them to where they can find the information that they are most interested in.
A WHOLE NEW WAY AND REASON FOR SUBSCRIBING:
There is no cost to SUBSCRIBE to Galganov.com to receive ADVISORIES of new editorials published, with a link on the advisory to the actual editorial. But, with the new and improved Galganov.com Website, there will be an additional reason and benefit for people to SUBSCRIBE.
Before you read the new reason to SUBSCRIBE – you should know this:
1 – Only REAL email addresses will be able to SUBSCRIBE. And we will make it worthwhile for SUBSCRIBERS to write their real City/State/Province where they live.
2 – As before, every SUBSCRIBER will be able to UN-SUBSCRIBE at any time.
3 – No SUBSCRIBER will have his or her name and email address made public.
COMMENTS . . . COMMENTS . . . AND MORE COMMENTS:
I receive an enormous number of emails dealing with each editorial, many of them being really well written and interesting, all of which I do my best to either acknowledge and/or answer.
AND NOW YOU WILL BE ABLE TO READ THEM TOO.
The new Website will allow readers to comment directly on each editorial, BUT ONLY IF THEY ARE REGISTERED SUBSCRIBERS.
HERE ARE SOME RULES AND SAFEGUARDS:
1 – Just like printed newspapers; before they print a Letter to the Editor, the writer must produce his/her NAME and City/State/Province where he or she lives.
To COMMENT on the new Galganov.com Website, Commenters will have to do the same, which will be seen by the readers. BUT NO ONE WILL SEE THE WRITER’S EMAIL ADDRESS.
2 – Any COMMENT that is insulting, defamatory, crude, racist or a lie, will BE REMOVED, AND lead to permanent ejection of that Commenter from the DIRECTORY.
3 – There will be a maximum amount of characters available for each comment. I don’t yet know what that number will be, but it will be enough for the writer to make his or her point.
4 – Our COMMENT section will not be a debate forum as we see on many Blogs, where a few people get involved in a thread that seems to go nowhere and becomes personal. So, to avoid this, the COMMENT programming will only allow one COMMENT per email address on each editorial.
The new and improved Galganov.com Website will still publish printed ARCHIVES of all editorials. We will also enhance how Readers can forward editorials to people on their LISTS. And we will still have the Audio Editorial Section, which I will try to use far more often.
YOUR VOICE AND THOUGHTS ARE VERY IMPORTANT:
Essentially . . . I will do exactly what I am doing now, with the ADDITION of making this Website available to you for YOUR COMMENTS and THOUGHTS.
HERE COMES THE PITCH:
The construction of this new and improved Website is NOT FREE. As a matter of fact, it is costing me a great deal of money, which I am prepared to spend, because I think that now, MORE than ever, all of our Conservative thoughts and opinions have to be made as public as possible, and disseminated to as many people as we can.
We CANNOT trust the Mainstream Media to be honest. And we CANNOT allow them to control the propagation of ideas and philosophies to people who would otherwise not have access to honest opinions, other than through honest Blogs.
THERE’S NO COST TO SUBSCRIBE . . . NOR WILL THERE BE A COST TO COMMENT:
BUT THERE IS A COST FOR FREEDOM . . . and I am asking you, especially if you are in a position to help out some, to help out in the development and HOSTING of this UPGRADE to Galganov.com.
I know that in these very troubling times, many of you are struggling just to keep even, and I have no expectation or desire to see anyone who can’t afford to help out do so. But, for those of you who can help . . . PLEASE DO.
Galganov Dot Com is a Federally Chartered Non Profit Corporation. We don’t pay salaries, or commissions, or anything else like that, other than the costs of doing the very public things we do to keep the FIRE OF FREEDOM BURNING AS BRIGHTLY AS WE CAN.
I just got off the phone with our IT-Guy, who assured me that all of the changes will be made within two weeks, all of which I am excitingly looking forward to, as I hope you are too.
To help cover some of the costs of this UPGRADE, you can CLICK on the button on any page that reads: HOW TO SUPPORT GALGANOV.COM.
You can support via PayPal, by credit card through PayPal, or by check through the regular mail. IT WILL ALL BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
