In just one short week, we'll be moving into an entirely new decade. To celebrate the new decade, I'm planning on doing a few new things on the blog as well as making some other miscellaneous updates.
Weekly Polls - People seemed to really enjoy the weekly polls that I did during the 50th anniversary month, so I've decided to bring them back in 2020. Beginning January 5, there will be a new poll question to vote on every Sunday. The results for each week's poll will be posted along with the next week's question. Admittedly, part of the reason I had stopped is because there were some people who were attempting to rig the polls, voting multiple times from the same IP address. There was one case where over 20 votes came from the same IP address in a week. Though Weebly's system does detect these and ask me if I want to delete duplicate votes, it became a bit tiresome to have to continue to delete people's duplicate votes constantly. Now, I've found a way to set it up so Weebly just automatically deletes all multiple votes from the same IP, including the original vote. I'm hoping this will deter people from trying to rig the polls, as now even the first vote will be deleted if you try to vote more than once. It's unfortunate that I have to do that, but nonetheless I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's opinions on some Scooby related questions!
Comics Page - For years now, I've been promising to make a page for Scooby comics. In 2020, I'm finally going to make the comics page, which will list every Scooby-Doo comic from all the different comic series.
Editorial Articles - By popular demand, I'm also going to try to really get on writing some more opinion pieces about the Scooby franchise. These will include editorial pieces, reviews of episodes and films, and also some original research content. As a little teaser of what's to come, the first of these articles will be an original research piece which will talk about how The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries is related to the Cold War and threats of foreign invasion. Sounds pretty strange, but I think it will be pretty cool once I finish writing it! I don't want to specify a frequency of how often I'll post these articles, though as a broad estimate, I would say at least monthly. I think it would be much more enjoyable for you readers if I had the time to write something thought-provoking and decent, rather than cranking out a new single article every week or whatever that's just sub-par.
Other than that, of course the fun facts will continue every week, with a special 300th one being posted (on estimation, as there have been two weeks where two fun facts have been posted) on June 15, 2020. I've also got a long list of other projects planned, in terms of content I want to write, but I think I'm going to keep those a surprise for now.
For the rest of this year, be sure to look for an article discussing the past decade of Scooby media, plus a special year-end countdown of the top 10 things that happened this year for Scooby's 50th anniversary. The final fun fact of the year will also be posted next Monday as usual.
Until then, I hope everyone enjoys their last few days of the year!
