I'm pondering what to do with my Cydonian Imperative blog, which presently exists semi-independently of the original CI site.

Blogger's templates are convenient but limiting, and I'm considering grafting new Mars content back onto the mactonnies.com domain, continuing the blog "manually" (and keeping it distinct from the one you're reading now). This should be welcomed by readers who liked my Mars site "the old way," and it might have the added benefit of forcing me to follow current and forthcoming Mars missions more closely and carefully.

A sequel to "After the Martian Apocalypse" is doubtful -- but hey, I've got the Web.

That's what I'd really like to see. At least a weekly update of current issues, new findings, new pix, new Hoagland outrages, etc., etc.! Technical details on magnification, camera angles, filters, etc., etc., also welcome.

Kind of like I'm feeling about now! (Chilly + schizo?)

Personally, I'd like to see you spend a little more time with CI in any form. You've not updated in quite some time. Your rational approach is sorely needed in a field of fools. Even so, the brutal truth is that you can be, and are being, replaced. Should you wish to keep your "position" in the "alternate Mars community", you'll have to work for it. People forget quickly. Sorry, Mac, don't mean to be rude, I spell tact t-a-n-k, but that's the truth, man.

I'd like to see the Mars material stay in the older format and on mactonnies.com, though I'd also like to see links for discussion of each feature that you show. CI is one of the most valuable resources for Mars anomalies, and I'm concerned about discussions here that cover CI-type discussions here getting lost in the scrolling of topics.

I agree with Carol. A website with a moderated forum would be excellent. A lot of folk respect you, Mac, and IMO a forum on your CI web site would be of great use in the ongoing discussion. With the present format, as Carol said, topics rotate off the page and are, for all practical purposes, lost.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone.
