FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here are Blue Trident's most frequently
asked questions (sometimes abbreviated to FAQ), with answers by Christine the Webmistress. If you have a
PJO-related question for Christine that isn't covered here,
send her an e-mail!
Can you give me Rick Riordan's e-mail
The simple answer is no. Rick is extremely busy with his writing, book
tours, interviews, and other cool (and not-so-cool) stuff authors get to
do. If he tried to answer every single e-mail he got, he would never get
any writing done! Besides, he would get mad at me for giving out when
he's told me not to.
Can I affiliate with your site?
Chances are I won't turn you down, so take a look at the
affiliates page for some more info, then
get in touch! And in case you're wondering, I have no qualms about
affiliating with non-Percy Jackson websites.
Can I be on your staff team?
Thanks for asking, but Blue Trident has enough staff members at the
moment. If I feel the need for more staff members, I will post an
advertisement on the
Why haven't you put my website's link up
First of all, I apologise. Real life has a bad habit of getting in the
way. Just send me a polite e-mail
telling me to get off my backside
reminding me and I'll put your link up as soon as I can.
Why haven't you updated for a while?
Well, either real life is draining the life force from me, or I'm not in
my PJO mood. I tend to be go through phases where I'm either really
enthusiastic about PJO or apathetic about it. If I'm posting and updating
a lot, it means I'm in my enthusiastic phase. If updates are limited to
really important things like release dates, I'm in the opposite phase. Put
simply, some days I really don't feel like doing anything with the site,
but other days I do. In the end it's my website and I get do what I like
with it (I am the one paying for the hosting and stuff!).
There's been a lot of news, why haven't
you reported it?
What might be news to you may not be considered news by somebody else.
Also you have to remember that I live in the UK so there's the whole time
difference thing. Besides, I tend not to do much searching for news
anymore because I simply don't have the time. But if you've found
something that might be interesting to the PJO community at large, send me
an e-mail and I'll most likely write a newspost about it (giving you full
credit, of course).
Can I be in the next Percy Jackson movie?
I don't have any control whatsoever over the movies as I am a simple lowly
fan. Your best bet is to surf the internet to see if you can find out if
(if any) auditions are taking place somewhere near you.
How did you create your website?
With lots of patience and a great many swear words. I'm only joking; I
don't curse that much. Anyway, I use a program called
Microsoft Office FrontPage
which was included in some older versions of Microsoft's Office suite. The
exact version I use came with an edition of Microsoft Office XP, so yeah,
it's quite old. My website host is called
Webs (formerly Freewebs) - I have a
Starter package subscription with them and they provide me with my domain
name and e-mail as well. If you want to start your own website I recommend
you try Webs out; after all, that's how Blue Trident got started.
Why isn't there a fanfiction section on
To be brutally honest, I don't care for fanfiction very much. I had a
friend a few years ago who was more-or-less obsessed with it and it put me
off it for good. I do tolerate it, though. There are boards on the
Blue Trident forum dedicated to fan
fiction (and fan art), so if you're really into it I suggest you go to the
forum as I don't see myself making a fanfiction section on the website any
