By Adam Knapp:
Oklahoma City has undergone incredible changes in the new millennium. With the growth of unique neighborhoods, the local sports and the cultural development, now is an exciting time for our city. Several times each week, I'll post news or comments on the About.com OKC Blog. I hope you'll give your thoughts as well. Also, keep up to date with the free weekly newsletter.
F.A.Q.What is this site about?
Short answer, Oklahoma City. But that's only the short answer. Take a look around, and you'll see information, recommendations, commentary and trivia about anything and everything related to Oklahoma's capital and the surrounding communities.
Can you give me recommendations for restaurants, clubs, attractions, etc.? I hope to. There are hundreds of lists and reviews on the site. But remember, recommendations are just one person's opinion. I feel like I know Oklahoma City well and am continuing to discover it every day. If I can pass along to you what I encounter and my feelings about it, you have a place from which to start. You can then come back and tell me what you think as well. Sharing opinions and recommendations is what this site is all about.
Can I give you recommendations?
Absolutely. If you have a website link or an event you'd like to share, please feel free to submit it to me for review. If it's relevant to Oklahoma City and informative, odds are good I'll include it on this site. For photo submissions, see this page for guidelines. And look for opportunities to comment on the blog and the individual article pages as well.
I can't find what I'm looking for here. What do you recommend?
Let me know. I may be able to help, even if it's not here quite yet. The site is expanding and growing each and every day, and I want to add the things you expect and desire.
I found an error or outdated information. What should I do?
Again, please let me know. I work hard to keep everything updated, but I'm human and there are things I miss. Use the email link at the top of the page and please include the specific URL. I'll take a look and make any necessary corrections.
I sent an email but didn't receive a response. What should I do now?
My apologies. Understand that I receive hundreds of emails each week. I'm not able to respond to every event submission or public relations release. Also, it isn't uncommon for emails to be marked as spam for one reason or another. If your email wasn't rude or profane and included a question or correction request, I will respond. Check your spam filter to make sure my response wasn't sent there, and then try again after a few days.
