Current Events Forum (FYI)

Post by SirPostAlot » Thu Apr 12, 2007 8:40 pm

You all probably know i am a little Anal Retentive/OCD/bothersome by stupid stuff...

anywho, i have been added to this forum to merge topics that are very similar (to exactly similar)...

As you all know, we get feeds from various news sources that do on occation send similar topics here.

I will read through these regularly, but i, too, will miss topics.

Please, if you find topics that are similar to exactly similar (i would say 95-100% same story) please PM me the links and i will merge them.

Thank you!



-Jeff

Jeff make sure u label the threads as merged. As they are 2 diffrent news sources, AP and BBC, members might want to know that.

well i am leaving skyes original posts (which has the feed in it) so when members click on the thread they will see both feeds...i don't think its really imperative to lable it "merged" as long as both viewpoints (i.e feeds) are there in the same topic and the same post...

you know what i mean?

As long as it is obvious that there are two different sources (and which is which) in the first post, I see no need to label.
