Last week, I posted a poll to get all of your thoughts on what I should add next to the site. I've really enjoyed seeing all of your thoughts over this past week and a half, and some of you have additionally suggested some very cool ideas that I'm really excited about possibly trying out!
Here are the results from the poll:
History of the Franchise - 42
Comics - 18
Theme Songs - 12
Voice Actors - 10
Fan Art - 6
It looks like History of the Franchise wins by a huge number of 42 total votes! Since this is what most of you voted for, I'll start working on that page soon! The page will feature info about how the franchise has evolved over the years, from when the idea of the show was first thought up to the present day.
Besides just voting for what you'd like me to implement, some of you also came up with some amazing ideas of things you'd like to see on the site and blog! Many people left this section blank, but the people who didn't offered some really cool suggestions. Since your ideas were so thoughtful, I'd like to respond to them each individually from the suggestions I got. Some of the ideas were very similar, so your comment isn't in this batch I'm responding to, it's because it was very similar to another person's idea.
Here are the suggestions you left me:
[Do you have any topics you would like to see an article written about on the blog?]
"The Toon Tour of Mysteries DVDs that were in Kellogg's products in the early 2000s."
Hi! I'm admittedly not quite sure what these DVDs are, and an Internet search didn't seem to turn up any results for me. They do sound really interesting though, so if you want to share a bit more about what they are, I'd love to write an article on these!
"I really enjoy reading Top 10 lists, so I'd love to see some of those on your blog."
Thanks for your suggestion! I actually took this suggestion into consideration while I've been writing posts for Be Cool, Scooby-Doo Week next week, so hopefully you are pleasantly surprised by two of the posts. :)
"I'd like to see you post more reviews on episodes and movies. You haven't done that in a while and I enjoyed reading them."
You're definitely right, and that's been something I've been wanting to do more of now for a while. Several people suggested something similar to this, so I'll try make more of an effort to post reviews regularly as stuff comes out! I'll be posting my review of the Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! finale next week, so keep an eye out for that!
"Maybe update the viewers on merchandise?"
Great suggestion! There is a lot of really cool Scooby merchandise out there. I'm not sure if they are still coming out with stuff regularly or not, but I'll try to keep everyone updated if I notice that there is new merchandise coming out. And if I miss something new that you know of, feel free to drop me a comment saying so. :)
I admittedly am probably one of the only hardcore Scooby fans who doesn't have a lot of merchandise in their collection, otherwise I would try to post pieces of my own collection. In case anyone hasn't seen this yet, my fellow admin and friend ScoobyAddict has been posting a piece of merchandise in her collection every day on her blog. Be sure to check it out, she has a lot of amazing stuff!
"If possible if you do the comics, you can try to put in a picture of the villain from each comic."
Hi! The only thing that's prevented me really from doing this is that I don't have many of the older comics at the moment, besides a few of the Where Are You's and the Scooby Apocalypse series. Of course, when I start doing the comic page, I can certainly all of seek those comics out (as I don't want to plagiarize/take others' pictures) and start adding the villain pics like I do with the episode and movie guides!
"A collection of observations, trivia, and statistics could go with the Guides section."
This comment actually served as a really good reminder for me, so thanks! I've actually been wanting to do the 'Interesting facts' thing that I do with the movie/specials guides now for a while on the episode guide. Of course, I would need to rewatch all the episodes to be able to make those observations, so it may take me a while to add all that. Thank you though, I love this suggestion!
I did get several other comments as well, though they were all very similar to these comments I responded to. So if I didn't respond to your comment, but I responded to one similar to it, that response is to you as well. :)
Also, I'd like to quickly affirm that even though the History of the Franchise page received the most votes, that doesn't mean that I'm never going to implement any of these other ideas. Since the popular majority wants the History page, I simply plan to prioritize that update first and try to start working on some of the other ideas and suggestions later. If you ever have any more suggestions you'd like to tell me about, or ideas you'd like implemented, or even if you just want to say hi, please don't hesitate to email me through the site's contact form!
