First and foremost, I would like to apologize for the downtime the site has experienced over the past few days. The primary â€œgoalâ€ in transferring the hosting of the site was to minimize the disruption of service, and hopefully we did not alienate any of you in the process. So, even though the first couple of days have been rocky, we are really excited.
We understand there are big shoes to fill to taking over an effort that Andreas, and the contributors to this site (i.e. YOU), have put a lot of intelligent effort into. My name is Will McIntosh and I have been a fan of Lost since its inception, and in the process have followed this blog for quite sometime. When it became clear that Andreas was looking to sell the website to focus on his future career, I became interested for a couple of reasons:
- The readership is quite impressive
- The intelligent conversation that takes place amongst the individuals that participate in the dialogue associated with Andreasâ€™ posts is second to none in the world of Lost websites
- The format that Andreas has created (site design, providing before and after commentary on episodes, following the tangential paths of the actors and actresses, facilitating conversation, etc.) works quite well
It would have been disappointing to have seen someone else purchase the blog and take it in a totally different direction. I will not be managing this site alone (hence the â€œweâ€ references above), and will have the help of a few of my friends that are similarly passionate about Lost and who can positively contribute to the collective effort.
Much like Andreas, we will not use this website to overtly spoil anything that is going to be happening in the coming weeks related to Lost, as there are plenty of those sites out there, and when we do reference any type of â€œspoilerâ€ information, we will mark it accordingly.
I wish the best of luck to Andreas and hopefully he will contribute when he has time; and I also thank you for your past and (hopefully) future participation.
