Semi-Official?  What does that mean?

Basically it’s between an official site and a fan site.

Yeah, we kinda figured that out already!

Fair point – What we mean by this set up is that Simon is aware of the site and is happy to support it and provide input when he can but he has no ‘defined’ obligations to do anything for it, and this way we don’t increase his already busy schedule.  This is how the site has technically been running unofficially since Feb 07, though only very few people were aware of Simon’s input (Sleuth dates anyone?) and occasional visits – though I have a feeling some people had guessed this already.

If this is how you’ve been running for 18 months already, why aren’t you 100% Official?

It was my decision (shelliwood) to approach Simon late July 08 to ask if we could make the site more official, his response was a simple yes and asked how I wanted to go about it.

I suggested a semi-official approach to start with to get used to a more formal way of doing thing, this way we can build inputs on both sides with no real expectations on what is expected from Simon.  If/when he has more time for more input we can maybe build to a fully official site, this way there is no disappointment when Simon is busy and can’t put any time into this site.

It also gives those working behind the scenes time to get used to and comfortable with what we are doing and how we are planning on handling various things.

So you’re in contact with Simon? How and can I have the details?

Via carrier pigeon – most eco friendly – carbon footprints and all that!

Simple answer, No, you can’t have any details.  If Simon wanted you to have them, you would have them already.

Any messages/emails asking for them will be deleted and actions taken.  We respect Simon’s privacy 100% and making sure it’s respected is the main focus of the Site Admin and Senior Staff.

If you want to contact Simon use official channels i.e. via his agent.

This site is Semi-Official as of 13th September 2008

    Well done, Shelli!

    I think you and Simon are make a very smart decision to formalize your working relationship. I also think that with time, you will learn what the other is comfortable doing and will be able to explore new possibilities.

    Isn’t it nice to know that those hours of hard work, pouring over Simon’s photographs, videos, screencaps, etc, paid off? ;^) (Yes, I thought so!)

    Best wishes now and always,

    Celeste of
