The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

The 15th Survivor
Monday, October 02, 2006
The only Nando I know is Nando Oliveira de Guzman - that half-Mexican, half-Portuguese torturer from Asuncion who you may remember was anything but humane.

As you know - the Good Doctor is far from good, so I believe his supplicant behaviour around Jacinda is a smokescreen, or perhaps even an act of camouflage.

When the night is silent it is a precursor to unimaginable evil. And this night was quieter than death - even the humming of the insects had stopped.

You should see how the folks out here resolve fighting - instead of pistols at dawn, defending their honour, they fight like little old women!

In my last letter I explained how it came to be that Juan Alonso de Arroyo's thugs were chasing me across the Colombian border into Panama...

Knock nock! Hi Luke. I was asking myself this question then i decided to come here since i don't have your email address. I'm concern. Are you guys working on there two line sms/email articles? Any guide-lines before they post their articles? Otherwise, you guys are doing great work. Love the site. We just need to get rid of some 'garbage' article. Cheers!
Message from: Green.arrow 6/25/2009 7:33:58 PM
Hi Luke, Thanx for helping me out with the "online members" Q on Chantal's article...I have one moer questions though....: so what else is it that people do on tvsa...i could only think of leaving the web page open while doing something(like i do usually) and the tvsa forums, but it still doesnt account for the current 535 volume....help plz!
Message from: Luke 6/25/2009 7:52:22 PM
Hey GA. Believe it or not, the blogs on TVSA only account for a small percentage of the site's overall traffic. Over 150,00 people visit TVSA every month, and even though thousands of them are reading the blogs or even posting on them there are many thousands more who are not. Blogs and forums are the major means of communication on TVSA, but the site is also the world's biggest database of South African shows and actors, and one of the biggest worldwide for international shows and actors. That makes it very valuable to researchers, who can't find the information anywhere else. There are also Celeb Q&As, interviews, casting calls, TV job offers, show/actor rankings, TAMS ratings and personal profiles (Gold). Aside from all that, many people don't participate in blog or forum discussion, and therefore you won't ever be aware that they are around - unless of course you glance up at the Users Online counter... :) Many people prefer just to read, or to gather information from the site that you can't find anywhere else. Many journalists use the site to get ideas for stories or to confirm information in their own stories; and television industry professionals watch the site like hawks to see what coverage their shows are getting, what people are saying, what the mood is, etc. And all those people - looking at and doing all those things - are the numbers you see in the Users Online (although bear in mind that it doesn't show ALL people on the site - only those that are registered members). Hope that answers your questions.
