As of June 20th, 2016 The Geekiary is no longer covering the TV show Supernatural. Below is our detailed outline regarding this policy including the WHAT and the WHY regarding this decision.
WHY we made this decision and WHY we announced it.
The Geekiary was started by a group of Supernatural fans, but quickly expanded into other fandoms. Instead of simply stopping our coverage, we felt we owed our readers an explanation as to why we were ending the thing many of them initially came here for. We wrote this OpEd explaining our reasoning: We Are Breaking Up With Supernatural.
A brief summary of the events that led to our decision:
Our coverage of this show has also caused a lot of grief, and as with any breakup, once the negatives start to outweigh the positives, it’s time to let go. […] Some may feel that our coverage of the show has alienated some groups within the fandom. That was never our intent. Supernatural is for lovers, and all fans should be united in their love for this show, the actors, the characters, the writers, and the show runners. That is one of the many reasons that we have decided to not cover the show any longer.
WHAT WE WILL/WON’T COVER
What we WILL cover:
- Actor Projects INCLUDING
- Wayward Daughters/Wayward Sisters related content
- Other shows and movies featuring actors that have been on Supernatural
- Fan Projects and art that touches on, though does not relate exclusively to, Supernatural
What we WON’T cover:
- Supernatural episode reviews
- Supernatural show news
- Supernatural exclusive fan artists
A note on Wayward Sisters:
Wayward Sisters will be covered on The Geekiary, as will related projects and initiatives. Should there be special crossover episodes or events, we will make decisions on coverage on a case by case basis moving forward.
