Hey guys, so I am thinking through this idea of having a news/publication thing for Witendofi. So I have a question for you:
What would you like to see come from it?
oh and also,
What do you think it should be called?
ex. "The Column", "Frequency", etc...
Also, Ace Jon, are you still up for writing for it?
1) The things I wrote about. It should be informal, gently humourous and packed full of information.
2) Witendofi Weekly, 1-Update (hahaha), Connected, idk
cool beans. Make sure the url is the name of it (if you go with Frequency [which is a fine name], make the url is witendofi.com/frequency)
Yeah, I am just gonna keep it generic til I talk it over with you guys a little.
Yeah whatever type of stuff you guys post, make sure it has pictures... I like pictures...
Are you going to have user blogs as well, or just the news blog? Just that the URL to me suggests user blogs, although as you said that'd change.
I actually named it "Frequency" because I thought it would have the potential to have user blogs in the future. It would be a trivial change to make. Then each person's blog would be their "Frequency". So, basically, we'll see. I don't want to have OCW-syndrome where we add a billion features, so I'd like to keep stuff simple for the time being.
It seems right now that older posts will be displayed first. Is that meant to happen?
Don't worry, it won't stay like that. I just forgot to change it
And that, ladies and gentleman, is why you have an initial testing period with a site!
I thought you left it first on purpose because it was your original explanation of Frequency.
"Nin-Sega turns 19 on the 31st."
Aww, thanks Ace.
Is nobody going to take the chance to make a pun about being on the same wavelength.
How about some sexy comment box on the news or something? I can comment on pictures but not DUH news?!
Or it could be like Macrumors where all the comments direct to a forum post of the main article which people then comment on.
Could you make a way where only so much is shown on the blog post before you click it? It's hard to scroll through everything with a mobile device.
Yes, I've been holding off on News comments because I am considering, as Nin-Sega said, making them a part of the forum.
Also, a read more thing is a good idea, LOLDSFAN.
Alright, I changed the Frequency index style so this should no longer be a problem. I didn't like how much scrolling was needed either.
i think you mean d-(^_^)z
Users should be able to submit articles or blogs to their own profile, and if they are upvoted/ 1-UP'd enough they become featured articles to be shown on the main Frequency section.
