Some Housekeeping Matters/Site News

And now some housekeeping matters, as we enter the new era of MST3K:

To begin with, we at Satellite News, all of us proud backers, are just LOVING season 11. Our congratulations to Joel, first and foremost, to the tremendous cast and crew and all 48,000-plus backers. Give yourselves a round of applause!

Second, YES, we know that our FAQ, show history and other sections are now out of date. We are working to update them, but, as we have noted before, we both have full-time jobs. We will get to it. Please be patient. (By the way, Steve “Daddy-O” Finley is also at work on an update of Daddy-O’s Drive-In Dirt but, again, it’s going to take some time.)

Third, because of renewed interest in the show, there will come a day, shortly, when you are going to be asked, if you wish to partake of our comment threads, to register with the site. Sorry, but with the influx of people, this is going to be necessary.

Fourth, episode guide Thursdays will continue as normal, with two exceptions. Next Thursday we will look at “Assignment: Venezuela” and then, for the following two weeks, we will take a short break and tackle the two KTMA episodes, (K01 and K02) that were posted as kickstarter bonuses. After that, we will begin season eight. When we finally get to season 11’s proper place in order (some time next March?), we will do them again there, more formally.

Fifth, discussion of each season 11 episode, in numerical order, will begin next Saturday as weekend discussion threads. These will be proto-episode guide entries and you get to help construct them!

That is all. Enjoy this wonderful moment in the history of the show.

    Not sure why that would be the case but perhaps back then his hosts were charging by visitor?In any case, doesn’t matter if 10 or 10 million folks come to a site (my own used to have a million each week, and now is down to around that 10 — made no difference either way).

    Available transfer, i.e. how much total data is served to visitors, is not infinite. You typically get a certain allotment with your web hosting account and if you go over it, you either have to pay overage per extra MB/GB (like if you go over your data limit on your cell phone) and/or would need to change to a more expensive package that has a larger limit to start with. If that fan page included any kind of media other than plain text, particularly streaming video, a 20x increase in visitors might have started sucking data like nobody’s business.

    Only an issue with images and such — and not even much then (as I said, I hosted a few forums with millions of visitors and the cost was such I didn’t even have ads — and still don’t, despite them being mostly ghost towns now).
