A Random Day on G&T: 10 Years On

On the 23rd February 2007 – 10 years ago to the day – Ganymede & Titan published four articles.

It perhaps seems odd to remember we used to be like this. After all, these days you’re sometimes lucky if you get four updates a month. We were a rather different beast back then. True, we still did loads of in-depth articles, but we also prized ourselves on reporting every single bit of Red Dwarf-related news going. Fun though that might have been, it’s the kind of thing that is entirely unsustainable now we have, y’know, proper jobs and stuff. We’d rather concentrate on giving you fewer, more substantial things to get your teeth into.

Still, I thought it might be fun to take a look at what we were up to exactly ten years ago today. If you’re lucky, you may just notice a few comments on one of my bugbears. But I think it’s quite subtle.

(Note that one of the items listed here references our spoilery article published the other day, so stop reading if you’re trying to avoid that.)

“So, Ganymede & Titan, you big pussies, well done!”

A website called Ganymede & Titan launched ten years ago today. There had been other sites with that name before, but this one had the spirit and ethos that has carried through the various incarnations of the site until the present day. In that time, there have been 2,141 front page posts, 2,111 forum topics, and (as of the time of writing) 75,239 comments across the site. There’s also 35 podcasts, seven original videos, 132 rotating banners and a fan film featured on the Series VII DVD. We’ve been mentioned by the Daily Telegraph, The Independent and in Doug’s Back To Earth directors’ commentary. Plus, we’ve been mocked by Norman Lovett, threatened with legal action by Grant Naylor Productions and had a full-blown flame war with a minor television personality. Let’s take a moment to pat ourselves on the back…

New registrations closed

Some of you may have noticed recent, ahem, ‘issues’ we’ve been having with the site. This is due to a frankly obscene amount of spam users creating new accounts every few minutes and clogging the shit out of the database.

As a result, we’ve now closed all new registrations until we roll out the upgraded site during the Christmas holidays. If there’s anyone out there who wants a new account then give me a bell via cappsy at gmail and I’ll sort you out good and propah.
