Blogroll Cleanup - Updated

To clean up the blogrolls, the admins have decided to take all blogs that have not been updated since March 2007 and move them to an "Inactive" blogroll, which should be ready in a few days. The following blogs have been removed. If any of these blogs should not have been removed from the active list (i.e. the last update date is wrong), please let one of the admins know.

Any particular reason why no one wants to add my blog to the blogroll? I have put in a request for it in the post designated for that purpose.

Sorry - I must have missed your blog, when did you send the request? It's a great blog as well.

Anyway I will put it on now. Drop me an email if you want membership here and don't have it yet.

thank you very much for cleanup,
because it reduce time to load pages, please do it in regular basis

Brn said...

Thank you anonymous.

We just got a script that will check the last update time of all the Blogspot blogs, which makes this task much easier. Before that, such a clean up required checking 300+ blogs, which is why it was so infrequently done. So it should be done on a more scheduled basis.

i*maginate said...

Yeah brn, thanks for your time in doing this.

It must have taken ages to write this post too, I guess!

I've checked some of the blogs and it's a shame some are inactive because they're quite interesting...

I posted on 02 July, 2007 22:08 (here: http://uaecommunity.blogspot.com/2005/12/want-to-be-on-blogroll-or-member-here.html)

Anyway, thanks for adding it!
