Potential New Forum Feature; Your Opinion, Please?
Posted 13 February 2007 - 01:30 PM
One way I considered using this is to create a new Forum Category, News Feeds or similar, to contain either RSS freed summaries with links to blogs related to atheism or news items from atheist-related sites.
Another possibility would be to create a bot that finds news stories containing specific terms and create posts from them.
I would implement this by creating new user accounts to be used only by the bots so that the messages they post will stand out as different. I also have the ability to insert a prefix in the subject line of such messages, like [News Bot] or some such. The messages would then become ordinary forum messages that can be replied to and discussed by us humans.
Please use the poll to let us know what you think of this potential new feature. Perhaps you think this is a bad idea.
I've done a similar thing in the Recipes section of my Sensible Celiac site, if you want to see what I mean.

Actually, the idea sounds grand to me, as long as it's not a lot of extra work for you. Heck, as much as you enjoy this kind of stuff, you probably don't consider it work at all!

You got that right, I think it is fun.
