This year we have oodles of plans to take Godchecker into new and invigorating dimensions. (Did someone say the word ‘app’?)
To help make this all happen, we’ve been extraordinarily busy behind the scenes tinkering and polishing the Holy Code. You’ll notice a few tweaks here and there – hopefully nice ones that don’t break your browser into little pieces. Most importantly of all we are actively updating the Database of All Known Gods, correcting mistakes, fixing glitches and purging unsightly pustules wherever we find them.
To get things going, we’ve just updated the entire African Mythology section. Several erroneous entries have been zapped and many little errors have been fixed. Work continues, so if you find any mistakes please let us know.
And don’t forget you can give us instant feedback via Twitter or Facebook.

Today, on the very pinnacle of the Summer Solstice, we unleash the brand new Godchecker site on an unsuspecting interweb.
This is the third major version of Godchecker since we began back in 1999. The first version was embarrassingly primitive, but the second was quite clever for its time, even sporting pseudo Web 2.0 features – before Web 2.0 was even invented.
It’s been our aim to revamp the site for a while. A lot has changed since the last upgrade. Gone are the days of browser wars and incompatibility hell; now there are such things as widescreen monitors, iPads and CSS3. What a wonderful thing is technology. We thank all the Gods for inventing it.
Please let us know what you think of the new look site. We will be adding more bits and pieces over the next few weeks, so your feedback will really help us. If there’s anything you love or hate, let us know!

Just to keep our loyal acolytes in the loop, here’s a quick rundown of the freshest Godchecker news.
- After much hectic editorial poking and prodding, The Book of the Gods is finished, checked, stamped and approved. The artwork is currently in India being scrutinised by a crack team of expert printers and we expect an exciting parcel to arrive some time in September. Godchecker HQ sends out a large thank-you to Robin Harries of The History Press and his team for their sterling work during the editorial and design process.
- We are hoping to give everyone a sneak preview of the amazingly gorgeous cover soon. Maybe even a sample page or two. We are very very very pleased with it. The Gods have indeed been smiling upon us.
- Godchecker Marketing Dept are planning and plotting ideas for the book launch. A party seems inevitable. Maybe two. Where and when? Beer or wine? Casual dress or togas? We’ll let you know.
- Never a man to rest on his laurels (for that is extremely uncomfortable), the magnificent Chas Saunders is once again delving into pubs and real ale for his Pubology project. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.
- Meanwhile, behind the scenes on Godchecker.com, the technical coding team lead by Dr Kludge have been working insanely on a brand new version of the site. Godchecker Mk III will be unveiled very soon!
- Many of our loyal and wonderful readers have discovered the Official Godchecker Twitter where the quirkiest of our many quirks are tweeted for your viewing pleasure. Please help us to help the Gods and spread the word!
That’s all for now. More very soon!

We are planning to brush away some of the site’s cobwebs and apply a little paint here and there in order to tug Godchecker into this dazzling new decade. With gleaming twitters and shiny facebooks springing up everywhere, we feel the Gods are looking a little dusty.
Our team of dedicated boffins have been working behind the scenery to bring you a cleaner, better, juicier Godchecker.com. With much head-scratching and scrutinising of the Mysterious Clay Tablets of KLUDGE, their tireless labors have crept a tiny distance closer to the utter perfection of HTML NIRVANA and CSS HEAVEN.
While this spring cleaning session continues, we crave your patience and humbly ask that any glitches or issues you may discover while cruising the Godchecker site are reported to us via twitter or email.
