This announcement is a good idea.
Even though you are announcing that you don't make announcements here. Isn't it the Page Intentionally Left Blank syndrome?
Ceci n'est pas une pipe.
You know that Magritte worked as a fire marshall? When he announced "This is not a drill", nobody knew whether to believe him or not.
And come on it's always a drill....who here as actually experienced a non drill?
What's all this about a drill, *wauts for the alarm*
It would be great if the new announcements page had a feed, like this one has.
I don't know how to set that up. Do you, Bel?
I didn't know this had a feed? I thought you had to subscribe?
If you're talking about an RSS feed - I'm pretty sure it's available for all forums, it's just a case of digging through the backlog to figure out how to manipulate the page URLs...
i sort of stumbled upon this...I still don't really understand what an RSS feed is.
RSS feed is a term that comes up on my computer that I've so far ignored..
Let's have a play and see if this works...
Whisky, would you consider volunteering for one of the teams? We need people of all kinds to help, so if you have any skills or time that you think you could offer support with, please get in touch.
This applies to everyone who is interested, we have heaps of things to do.
*lends Lanza a snare*
Actually Z, I find super-glue on the keyboard quite useful.
That would explain why Pastey gave us ZZZZZZZZZZZZ instead of proper code.. I thought it was his cat on the keyboard.
More seriously if you want a general chat about what's involved and what we need e mail me @
Lanza you did really say, > We need people of all kinds to help<
Are you sure?
And i am..(I'm not so good on heaps these days though but I AM ONSIDE....(you like footie metaphors, yes?)
Yes, we need writers, reviewers, sub-editors, artists, people with technical abilities, people who understand communications etc etc.
We especially need writers, which is why I am personally so pleased to see Create evolving, and encouraging new people to begin writing for the first time.
Erm, would I consider volunteering?
To be honest, I'd have to think about it...
a) Over the years I've had just about every badge it's possible to get on this site, and I've ended up giving them up because eventually I've run out of hours in the day and haven't been able to do them justice
b) I'm just conceited enough to wonder whether I could do more good as an 'outsider' - throwing occasional spanners into the works whenever I feel like it.
But I will think about it, promise.
