[Status Update] Idea Place or Idea Graveyard?

I realize it's a Coffee Corner faux pas to cross-promote a blog post here, but no one ever accused me of being classy.

That confession off my chest, I want you all to know about this: What's the Big Idea? (An Update About Idea Place).

Initially, I had wanted to post that here (because I think that information about Idea Place is of most interest to the members who frequent Coffee Corner). But then it occurred to me that the entire post would show up in the preview on the Coffee Corner home page. (Anyone else notice that that happens?) So publishing as a blog post seemed the best choice.

I'm not trying to split up the conversation between here and the blog comments. I would prefer that we keep the discussion beneath the blog post. But...I did bring the topic up in Coffee Corner, so I technically invited the conversation here too.

At any rate, whether you respond here or to the blog, I'll reply as appropriate.

    Nooot really. Promoting blogs and stuff in status updates has a long tradition. :) So you're good.

      Then I'm relieved to know that I'm just continuing the tradition. :)

      Yeah, that's pretty much the only way to get a blog noticed these days. And with Veselina's AdBlock solution preview is no longer a problem.

      "prominent community member" - aaaaww, sho shweet. :)

        I hope I got the quote right. It's not the kind easily forgotten. :)

    Sadly the blog seems to be unaccessible at the moment. Is that to which the "Idea Graveyard" refers?

    Perhaps someone can resurrect it?

    We are sorry, but the site you are looking for is temporarily out of service.
                  Please try again later!

      I think there were some issues with the blog space earlier. I can access the blog now.

        Yes, I woke to discover a notification that the blog system was down between 11:30 and 12:45 CET. It was due to an issue with a system that affected several solutions, including blogs. No cause for the error has been reported but it is being investigated.

        Fortunately, everything seems OK now,
