We’ve often heard people asking for a good off-topic page and so it’s finally here! As we say in our editorial, The Eurovision Times is a blog about the Eurovision Song Contest that values the sense of community most of all. It’s fine if you’re just reading us for the news and we’re glad we can provide it (most of the times, we’re not really the first up to date for the people working on this do it on their free time and are very busy in general). A few times, we provide games and contests (TEKO and Fridas) that are original and fun and have helped build a sense of community. Most of all, comments by regular readers who became regular commentators on Eurovision articles made us recognize one another, value and respect each other.
So, naturally, we often went offtopic here and there, just because we enjoy chatting with each other. A lot of people have recently asked us for an offtopic page. Here it is! You can talk about anything here except… Eurovision! That’s right, Eurovision is still the main topic about this blog, so any offtopic news or talk for Eurovision can still go on the news articles. On the other hand, sports, politics, culture… are all welcomed on this new page. The regular rules for the blog remain: only English so that we can all understand one another, no personal insults, nothing too graphic on violence and sex. We trust you to be respectful!
Now comment away, and let’s see when we’ll reach 50 comments, 100 comments, our new record 1000 comments soon?
