Oh right, I didn't realise it would have to be done manually. Sorry about that.
It seems a shame to comment in someone's hard work but all these threads appearing from the old forum is confusing the hell out of me!
I know what you mean:). I am trying to limit it to just a few a week. But it is good to see the old conversations getting a new breath of life as many are being added to. It's worth keeping an eye on them Mysteryshopper :)
I'd volunteer to do a blog, but I've far too much trouble trying to remember to update my own. However, if and when I get to do an investigation I'd really like to put pen to paper about it.
Agricola, can we have a link to your blog, please? I've looked around but I can't find it - probably missing the obvious ...
Not sure I'm allowed to do shameless self promotion here.
That's what some people use forums for ... :)
I'm really interested, if you can put the libk here please. I promise not to promote it ... :)
Don't worry about that. We'll just ban you if we don't like it lol :)
Haven't been banned from anywhere for a while. In fact almost 10 years ago, but less said about that story, the better.
You folks already have forum topics which can be updated, and 'thematic posts' which can be updated, and in both cases the activity gets displayed on the recent comments board on the front page.
I'm not sure what a blog would look like other than one of those things. All it would do is seperate some people's stuff from the main site.
I guess, as has been suggested, if someone was actually on an investigation they could run a diary of their activities. That would be a different kind of content.
But if it's just the usual maunderings, then having blogs is just another way of listing the same type of content, and that gets confusing. I've seen other sites with 'forum', 'content' and 'blogs', and there's usually little difference.
How about website reviews? Book reviews? There's so much stuff out there...

Wayland's Smithy is one of the most impressive and atmospheric Neolithic burial chambers in Britain. Somehow this ancient grave became associated with Wayland, the Saxon god of metalworking, from whom it takes its name.
