Since 2005 over a
hundred and thirty sixty people have blogged on Savage Minds. (And another 44 have written “invited posts.”) We have email addresses for most of them, but not all, and some people may have changed their email address, so the easiest way I know to reach everyone is by posting this here. Hopefully they still read the site! (Everyone else feel free to ignore this post.)
If you ever wrote anything for Savage Minds under your own account – meaning you had a username and password at some time in the past, we we would like you to login and update your account profile. After a year-long outage we recently re-launched the site with a new design and all our archives restored. Unfortunately, in the process a lot of user data got lost. In many cases it was probably out of date as well. The new design does a better job at highlighting individual authors, with a bio appearing below each post, and at the top of archive pages for each author. Updating your bio will make sure that this information is up-to-date.
A few notes:
- Your password is probably lost or missing. Please click on the “Lost your password?” link to have a new one sent to your email address. If you don’t know which email address was associated with the account, please email us and we’ll let you know. (Once you login you can change your email address if you like.) You can also reset your account using your username.
- If you’d like to associate a photo avatar with your account, please create an account at gravatar.com and associate this email with an avatar on that site. (Our site will automatically link with your gravatar image.)
If you have a wordpress.com account you can link that to your profile (after you login) and then from then on you can login to Savage Minds simply by clicking on the “Login with WordPress” button.
Please keep your bios short – just two sentences should be enough. You can add a URL linking to your webpage, twitter account, academia.edu profile, etc.
Finally, if you blogged for us in the past, maybe you’d like to do so again? We currently are booked for guest bloggers through the end of 2014, but we are already looking for people to blog in 2015. If you yourself aren’t interested, maybe you know someone who would be?
