Update Archive 08/2003 – 02/2004

I just wanted to give an update on the future of this site. I will STILL update it whenever I get a chance, but I’ve been very busy lately and not very motivated. My priorities in life have changed quite a bit lately as well. Plus, I have a feeling the interest in IGaS isn’t as strong anymore since it went off the air (on GSN, that is). I haven’t updated lately because I moved, so I had to deal with all of that, and I’ve been busy working and dealing with life. I was pretty close to putting up a big update before I moved, too. I was really excited about it because it’s something probably none of you have seen, very “behind the scenes.” I will definitely get that finished at some point, and it will be the next thing up on this site. In any event, you don’t have to worry about this site disappearing, I have no intention of taking it down! It will remain up as long as I am able, but I don’t know how often I’ll be updating it. Maybe if IGaS comes back on GSN I’ll get motivated to work on more stuff.

Oh, and there was a tiny update done to the FAQ. I added some info to the theme song section.

If anyone wants to work on biographies or something, feel free to send them to me! I’ll put them up, because those are quite easy since it’s just text. Transcripts are a bit harder because I’d still have to get the screenshots and put the whole thing together, so email me before you do anything like that, if you’re planning on it.

Well, it looks like GSN proved me wrong. IGaS is now off the schedule, and no longer on the air (it happened days ago, I just didn’t update right away). Very sad news, but let’s just hope it will come back into rotation after some time. Better yet, email programming@gsn.com and tell them you want it back on! They need to know that there are a lot of people out there who love the show, and (would) watch it every night! Ok, onto the updates.

I have put up an FAQ! It’s still somewhat small, but it’s a work in progress. It answers such questions as “Where can I get a copy of an episode?” and “Do you trade tapes?” as well as step-by-step instructions on how to find out the original airdate of an episode. If you have a question you think other people want to know as well, email me and ask! If I think it’s a good question (and I can answer it), I’ll post it in the FAQ. Along those same lines, if you know the answer to a question you think should be there, email it to me and I’ll post it (and give you credit).

I put up a Site Map as well! I realize that there are some things on this site that are in very odd places, so maybe that will help. If you’ve been to most of the sections on this site already then you probably don’t need to look at the site map.

I have also updated Henry’s bio with corrections and additions from Dana Duffy.

Sorry for this update, because there really isn’t anything new to tell you about, but I feel this deserves mentioning. As is stated in this thread on the Game Show Network forum, GSN might be cutting the black and white block of shows down to one hour a night! While I realize that many of the people who would be reading this also frequent the forums, just in case anyone out there doesn’t know, it is recommended that you email programming@gsn.com if you’d like to keep the B&W shows on the air! Tell them how much you love the black and white shows! Of course they’re not getting rid of them completely, and IGaS is one of the most popular shows so I doubt it will go away. However, I like all of the black and whites, and I’m sure a lot of you do too. Now, maybe they’re not shrinking it at all, but it’s always good to tell them what you like, right? So by all means, TELL THEM!

Ok, so this isn’t a total loss, I updated the OxyIGaS page with more secrets, and I also added some stuff to Betsy’s bio.

The new (and probably final) TV Guide Cover page is up in the PICTURES section! It features EVERY IGaS TV Guide cover, complete with dates and a description of who is on the cover! You can also view that page in TEXT ONLY form (no thumbnails of the covers, faster loading).

I have been trying to get IGaS TV Guides on ebay, and have gotten a few so far. I’ll be transcribing those articles, which will be in the articles section when they’re finished, with pictures. I hope to get all of the IGaS TV Guides, but we’ll see.

Another huge update! I can’t keep this up for long, folks. Today we have my finished “Here’s Morgan Book Review!” You can find it in the ARTICLES section under “opinion.” It is a HUGE review, with lots of passages transcribed for your reading pleasure. Read all about the “communism” accusation, his boat trip with Garry, and many other things! While I was at it, I also updated Henry’s biography with more info about his wives/family, and more pictures!

Speaking of pictures, there is a new pictures category! There is a page for “professional photos.” Right now there are only three Henry photos, but more will be added in the future. Visit the PICTURES section for that.

I put up more credits! They are the credits for the 9th Anniversary Episode! You can find that in the END CREDITS section, naturally.

IGaSol is now listed on the links page of the IGaS page on TVtome!

I put up a transcript of the Final Episode comments, complete with pictures! You can find it in the ABOUT section. I hope it doesn’t confuse people, because although it’s technically a transcript, I feel it fits better in the about section. I also changed the format of that page just a little bit. I put up a page for the Oxygen version of IGaS which is also in the ABOUT section. It just has a list of some of the secrets that have been on the show.

One last thing. IGaSol is now in the links section of the IGaS page on Jump the Shark!

Huge news! I registered http://www.ivegotasecretonline.com a few days ago! Now you can just go to that address, and you’ll arrive here! I know it’s not much shorter to type, but it’s easier to remember! The url won’t stay in the address bar because of the way the server is set up, but maybe sometime in the future it will.

There are a bunch of new transcripts up, WITH AUDIO CLIPS! The transcripts page has also been broken up into categories. I will add more once there are more transcripts. All of the audio clips are in the “Acts and Performances” section. The download link for the audio will be at the top of each transcript. I also put up the theme song for “It Happened to Jane!” It can be found at the top of its transcript, of course. That’s it for now, enjoy the new stuff!

Well, I finally changed the name. The site is now officially called “I’ve Got a Secret online!” I know how uncreative it is, but it just seemed the most straightforward. Now I can finally put up some of the stuff that I finished a long time ago, so look for that in the near future. Audio clips are coming! I also recently got the episode of Oxygen IGaS in which Steve Allen and Betsy Palmer appeared, and I will transcribe it with pictures at some point, but I don’t know when. Well, I think that’s about all for now. I’m going to be putting up all the audio clips together, because there will be a new transcripts page section for them.
