Apologies & Changes

For a long time I’ve been really guilty about the Ask About Ireland section of this site. The basic problem is I’ve been ignoring it, not because I don’t want to retain it, but because I simply don’t have time to answer the questions that are posted.

I know this must be frustrating for those who take the time to post a question, and I regret that and apologise if you are one of those people.

I’ve recently had a few not very friendly emails from people expressing their frustration at a question not being promptly answered. It’s clear from these emails that some people believe the site is an arm of some official  tourist organisation or at least has a paid army of people available who are inexplicably not doing their job well. But it isn’t, it’s just my own little side project and I’m just one person. The time I can spend on it – given my need to, you know, earn a living – is very limited.

So, I am going to start leaving this section to sort of fend for itself when I can’t give the time to answers. I’ll post questions with a less stringent moderating process (or at least see how that goes), and tweet them when they are asked, in the hope that those who have time when I don’t will pop in and answer. We’ll see how it goes.
