EDIT: Yes, Meta prefix flair has been added!!

It's been 10 years. Would like to solicit feedback from newcomers, as well as veterans, on the quality of news articles.

  • What articles do you want to see more of?
  • How frequent do you want to see newer news articles?
  • Any other suggestions/opinions?

Thanks.

It's been 10 years since Revenge of the Sith released.

Well, any important article. But I suppose that's subjective.
On the front page I'd say as long as there's at least 3 new big headlines a day.
I dunno, I mean TH isn't a news website, so there's only so much that can go into formatting it until it ends up being an actual news website. So anything important/interesting/quirky/tech-related I think is fine.

I want more funny shit happening in China and Russia. Like coins and chairs exploding and churches and bridges being stolen.

Times have changed since 10 years ago... I'm still trying to find them.

Controversial shit. We can usually argue over just about any topic, but the good arguments tend to come from controversial issues without a clear-cut right or wrong to either side. The arguments definitely get dumb... really dumb. And repetitive. But it's what keeps me coming back, no matter how dumb they get. So just keep giving us shit to argue about and I won't have any complaints.

Yeah, something against human rights; something that we can all agree how awesome it is.

Ok, I guess it's warranted for a 2-years update:

3 new big headlines a day.
I think I'm failing this. Right now it's more like 2 to 5 articles per 2 to 3 days. The new job I got requires more mental exercise so I'm been pretty tired each night I come home. The news lately are more focused on the politics in science and technology. But scattered out, I still spot some hidden gems.

Controversial shit.
Since 2016, the controversial stuffs are mostly politics-related... It's something I was avoiding for a long while since, so I don't know if I should start introducing more political articles.

Yeah, something against human rights; something that we can all agree how awesome it is.
Well, at least the Hong Kong situation is more leaning towards "articles about stuffs against human rights". So, it finally happened I guess.

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
