that's the problem
on ss.com it's approved, but no info in the web
so it's a matter of seeing it by yourself

I have requested to be the editor for sharjah and will start to clean things up there ASAP. This should be listed as proposed and auntill we see something happen, ie a press release etc should stay that way

Who was the Editor for Sharjah ?
We always knew that Sharjah and rest of Rest of UAE would take back seat to Dubai but updates are needed . Good to see it might happen now if you can manage both !
As for news well has there been any ? June 2003 it was 6 months of starting. Here it is almsot end of 2004 and nothing

Sharjah didn't have an editor. As a senior editor I can update stuff in Sharjah though.

So is this one dead? Looks so, as it's been announced for what 3 years now or so, unless they're really taking their time.
