Poll: We Can't Upgrade This Blog. What Should We Do?

We can unfortunately no longer add any new members to this blog. Anyone who has a Blogger ID created under version 2 is locked out. I’ve tried to add three people and it fails each time.

Even though the Star Wars: Unplugged admins have all upgraded their Blogger accounts to the new Blogger, this blog remains a version 1 blog. I thought that would do the trick, but it didn’t work.

So, we have a few choices which I’d like the members to vote on.
  1. Create a new version 2 blog and send out invites to everyone to rejoin.
  2. Contact the original creator of the blog, add him back as an admin, and see if that will allow us to upgrade.
  3. Leave the blog the way it is with the membership frozen.
  4. Other options? Please explain via comment.
Please take the time out to vote. I prefer option one, which is quick and painless, but let me know what you’d like to do.

Thanks!

My thoughts are to try to have the original admin upgrade it. I am betting that his blogger account is not upgraded. If we can't get him or he's unable to upgrade, then we should pick up and move our stuff to a new blog.

I'd say upgrage to a v.2 blog.. that way there isn't a whole lot of waiting..and who knows? I haven't been able to post because of the beta evilness so maybe this will work out for all concerned.

I am with option one, but I am not sure who that was (cardbord knight?)I hope option two is not too much work for you.

I'm with Jon.... I love this blog and a new one just would not be the same - at least for me, guess I am being a bit selfish!! :)

One last bit - for me and I am sure for others who have been here longer - there is a LOT of sentimental value here. I am a sap, I must admit!!! LOL But if I can help with anything just say so..

It's not selfish Nan, I for one agree with you.

However for to good of all, I think that if original admin can not or will not help. Then we have no other choice left but start a new blog for this large almost family of sorts of a group.

As for me, I guess you can say I'm a sucker for keeping things the way they are.

We could always have a prominent link from the new blog to the old one, maybe in the form of a banner in the sidebar.

In any event, no one is suggesting deleting this blog.

Is there currently ( 3 ) admin on this site ? Have we tried to set it to ( 1 ) admin and then change it.

If that would work, the ( 2 ) could be readded .

Or am I thinking wrong?

There are currently two admins. I just tried your suggestion and reduced the number to one, but nothing changed.

Captain Typho, have you tried with just yourself as admin, resending yourself invite?

Not sure but that may work.

I just remembered that I reserved the address http://starwarsunplugged.blogspot.com way back when we started this blog.

Currently it redirects to the address for this blog http://starwarsunited.blogspot.com.

This group is free to use it if you so wish.
