‘allo all, I’m trying to figure out why some of the official open threads are hosted by the mainblogs, while others are hosted on the community blogs and then shared, and why some blogs don’t have ‘em at all. I’d also love to know if there’s any rhyme or reason to which blogs link to their community blogs.
