Quick reminder

Post by eddie on Thu Sep 17, 2015 8:18 pm

Any news item that is posted up must contain a link to a source.

Any YouTube videos or blog excerpts etc that aren't in the actual media news, should be posted elsewhere ie miscellany (always a safe bet)

Any thread posted in the news sections must (or should) contain the news media headline of the actual story.

Please don't only post a link to a news item; try and post a piece of the article if possible

Thank you muchly you lovely peeps.

Really, I don't mind slight re-writes on headlines/titles, but they should be informative. Threads like "Bloody hell!" tell the rest of us nothing and are kind of cheap, an obvious ploy to get clicks.

In news articles, I think it's cool to include links to different media outlets, along with photos and video if you can find it. It takes longer, but it's fun for the reader.

I know there's a temptation to just drop a link when you're sharing a story from The Independent, but I've seen very few stories there that aren't covered by other news outlets. Which is kind of ironic if you think about it

Ok

So this doesn't make sense

As I posted the full news story with the link

I changed the title to a relevant one

But it was still changed to something that didn't even make sense!

Okay found the link and have put an explanation on there.

I'll just remind you, and anyone else, that when the poster BigAndy9 was a member, he often posted news stories with his own titles (which were often his opinion) and we had a little uproar from other posters about it.
Hence the rule that news stories should carry a title that explains the story - using the actual tile that the newspaper or media use is best.

Hope that clears that up.

Lololol

When BigAndy did it

He put the racial side to it

All mine said was a silver lining.....

Ffs

It's not rocket science

It had the news and the link

In future I will make sure I act like the robots you want on here Ben.

I don't think anyone on here is a robot SM.
I think you reported and complained about BigAndy's threads yourself?
They weren't all considered racial - but they were confusing and misleading about the actual story.

It doesn't matter does it? The essence of a thread is still the same.

No one has changed your opinion.

I thought he was OK. He's not here anyway, so there's no need for you to be abusive about him.

It doesn't matter if the thread is made by someone you love, hate, fancy or tolerate.
It's irrelevant.

It does matter if it doesn't make sense!

That's irony at best

That's not irony?

The thread had a typing or C&P error SM.
It really wasn't anything to get overly defensive and overly angry about.

Anyway, off to look at eBay, really have got into looking as Whitefriars glass and Murano glass lately, beautiful looking.
