    Question About Adding A Feature

    Just wanted to get some feedback on this.

    Would there be any interest in adding a feature where stories are posted automatically from various sources about certain topics, kind of like a news feed of some sort.

    I'm not sure if there would be any real interest in this, most people search out and post stories anyway, but we have could some music ones, or sports, I don't know. Just trying to get an idea from people.

    Thanks.

    It'd be cool. Kinda like the ticker on www.sportspages.com's frontpage?

    I think it's a good idea. News feed services are fairly inexpensive, too. Of course, I dunno what kind you're looking at.

    In the age of TiVo, I'd prefer not to have sports feeds, etc, automatically appear on the screen. Sometimes I come here, stay away from the PlayBall forum, and am still able to catch "the game" on TiVo after the fact.

    If I'd have to go get them, or would have the option to toggle my preference, that would be fine.

    Oh they'll be free feeds, I think what it's going to do is post stories, at least I think that's what it's going to do. Basically the thing will make a new topic with the story, like a bot.
