Dear Blog Admins/WGA

In 11 days my ITS user account expires, as the two scary emails I've received recently have told me. While I admittedly haven't been using this thing much of late – I've gone elsewhere – I would still like to maintain it for the odd occasions in the future when it will be useful.

I joined the WGA for two reasons – 1) to get cheaper access to the sports center next year, and 2) to be able to continue using this blog.

1) Hasn't worked out very well. It costs £132 to join the sports center as a WGA member, a reduction from the £144 you pay otherwise. A year's membership to the WGA costs, yes, £20. Spot the discount…oh wait…it actually costs MORE this way. What utter cheek! Only at Warwick…
/Shakes head

Anyway, with regards to 2) (and the POINT of this post), I haven't heard anything yet from anyone. Can someone please tell me what is going on?

Thank you for your time,

  1. Stupid isn't it. You can get some kind of graduate warwick email account, if only I could remember how…

  5. Hi Simon,

    Looks like the message about the process of saving your blog has not got out to everyone. Take a look at the entry here. Basically, just send us an email at stating that you'd like to keep your blog, giving the following info:

    WGA membership number (will be something like your old library/university id number)
    Your new email address
    Preferred name on your new account (if you are a William and like to be called Will, we can now do this)

    We are currently going through the process of getting people new usercodes/passwords and will be transferring blogs over to these new accounts in the coming week.

    Sorry for any confusion/panic we might have caused by not communicating this to everyone as clearly as we should have done.

    I would just like to reiterate that no blogs are going to suddenly get deleted so don't panic :)

  6. Thanks Kieran. I'd like to point out that I did read that piece of news, but I'm afraid it's really not that clear. You say we should email you if we want our blog deleted, but if we want to keep using it all we have to do is join the WGA. "Once you've done this, we'll make you a new usercode and password to sign in to your blog with."

    No mention of us having to do anything there ;-) The point where you tell us to email seems to imply that we should do so if we lose access to our blog, not to make sure we retain it. Glad you've cleared this up here at least.

  7. WGA does give you up to 5 books from the library, too! I would consider that priceless if I didn't get fined for an overdue… again…

  8. Indeed, except that as I'm not a student any more, and the library a) is underfunded and b) pretty much only stocks academic books, why would I want to use it any more?

  9. because attending libraries makes you FEEL good about yourself. makes me feel smart for sure!
