I'm working on some things that I wanted to share with you all. A select few of you already know some of this, but I saw no need to keep it a secret from everyone any longer.
I've mentioned before that I will be putting out a top 500 matches of the 90s. I've decided that instead of just doing a series of message board posts, I would like to make an e-book out of this concept. I will select the 500 best matches of the 90s from my point of view and review all of them in chronological order. As far as ranking the matches, I will save that for a message board post, as I think the contentious debate over the difference between number 388 and 389 will play well here, where I think it would distract from the content of an e-book. In addition to just reviewing matches in the e-book, I also plan to include some sidebar stories on fun/important news items, angles and promos throughout the decade. My hope is to create a viewing companion to watching wrestling all over the world in the 1990s that would also work as a bathroom reader. I'm targeting having this done and available by February.
I've also decided that around this time, I would like to launch a front site for Pro Wrestling Only. I have already contacted some key people who I would like to have write content for the site and I will be contacting some more in the coming days, weeks and months. I think I have a good vision for what I want the website to be. I'll share more details as I'm able to nail more of it down, but I think you'll all be very happy with the final product. There are plenty of websites that cover wrestling news, and there are plenty of pop culture and sports websites that cover wrestling as one of many topics. I am aiming for something very different from what other sites are doing. More info on that front soon.
Because my vision is ambitious and I want to do it right, I'm doing a lot of preparation and planning before launching, so we're still a long way from the site being a reality. That said, I am very open to ideas. If any of you would like to get on board and have ideas about how you might be able to contribute to something like this, please send me a private message and we will talk it out.
Despite all of this, I want the message board that we have all fostered and made what it is to largely remain what it is. Any changes to the board I want to be minimal, if there are in fact any changes to it at all. However, I do want to expand our community and get more people posting here, so you'll probably notice me doing some outreach, both by posting more at other message boards around the Internet and in increasing our social media presence. We currently have over 500 followers on Twitter (please follow us if you aren't already!), but there are other forms of social media where I plan on giving us some presence in the near future. Just know that while I do want to expand, it's not worth expansion to the detriment of the quality of this board. We will continue moderating the board just as we do now to ensure that anyone who posts here isn't making this place a less fun outlet to talk about pro wrestling with other fans.
Thanks to all of you for helping make this place awesome, and here's to the future!
