Want an Arch Linux blog ?  http://archlinux.me/username

See http://archlinux.me for examples of what the blogs will look like :)  For about the last 3 weeks I have been testing out software for archlinux.me blogs, based on WordPress.  So far, things have went very well.
I am about ready to open things up to more users, if anyone is interested.  I have a few days before I will be able to setup new users, as I am currently in the process of moving the entire setup off my development server to it’s own server that has more bandwidth and bigger pipes.  Several nice add-ons include: Syntax highlighting using GeSHi, Twitter messages, Ping.fm updates, and more.

Here are a few of the terms…..
YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 25 POSTS ON ARCHLINUX.ORG TO REQUEST A BLOG

#1 No guarantee of uptime, or service, or anything else ……period. (hey, it’s free, don’t bitch).
The uptime shouldn’t be an issue since it’s on it’s own server, neither should service for that matter, but this is just cya stuff for me.

#2 Blogs should be Arch related, you need to have some arch content, if not … go use blogger. Obviously your not my target user.

#3 Don’t ask me to change the theme….. it stays, and there is only one (for the moment).  It resembles the main Arch theme, as it should.

#4 If you ask for an account, USE IT.  I may set these up manually/individually to keep away the bots, and I really hate wasting my time, as I’m sure you do too.

#5 Account Inactivity: I will terminate your account in accordance with #4, if you don’t bother posting for 6 months.

#6 archlinux.me reserves the right to cancel service at any time without notice for any reason.

#7 archlinux.me has no official affiliation with archlinux.org

#8 Any changes to the TOS will be posted in this thread …… and the TOS are subject to change without notice.

#9 Unethical behavior will get your account suspended or closed, totallyat the discretion of the Site Administrators. (yea, that’d be me)

#10 I reserve the right to refuse service.

#11 YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 25 POSTS ON ARCHLINUX.ORG TO REQUEST A BLOG !!!
(very rarely will exceptions to this be made.)

#12 It’s free …….. so see #1

By posting your request , you agree to the Terms of Service above and have read this message.

I think the terms above pretty much cover it.  Hopefully none are to restrictive, they are not intended to be.
Basically, that’s just cya stuff :)  I have no plans to shut down archlinux.me….. but crap happens…… I can’t foretell the future.

If you meet the 25 post requirement, and want a blog, please feel free to request one in this thread.  Once the server is setup and running, I will setup blogs on a first come first serve basis.
Your blog will be http://archlinux.me/YOURUSERNAME   Example, mine is:  http://archlinux.me/crouse

REMEMBER: YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST 25 POSTS ON ARCHLINUX.ORG TO REQUEST A BLOG
