    Ian,

    Why is it that the links to some of the newspapers sometimes are very old. Currently the Globe links date back to 27 Jan.

    Funny thing is that it is not always the same paper's links. A month ago it seemed like the Herald was older out of date links.

    I used to go direct to Globe / herald / projo pages and read; but had got into habit of just using your links.

    Is this something you have to manually edit every day to capture those links? Or is it something that is supposed to automatically synch and just misses for a while at times? Not sure how you keep this website going as well as you do. Thanks again for keeping me an informed patsfan.

    That's interesting. I've noticed that but thought initially it was due to lack of updates, but obviosuly that's not the case. I'll have to look into that as it's supposed to update automatically. The front page is going to be changed in the next several weeks as once again I'm going to be doing some housecleaning to make things a little better. I'm finishing looking into some things that should make it more insightful, and also more informative. The goal is to make the site more of a news and information source than it has been, and the commentary from Bob and Kevin, along with Christopher Price's blog and Grogan's Grade will make it a place hopefully everyone will want to visit each day.

    Actually Ian, it's something on the Globe's end.

    My RSSReader is only getting headlines back to 1/27 too.

    Yo Ian,

    A seasonal request if possible - can the Draft Forum be added to the list of sub forums above the list of threads on this page? As it stands you have to retreat to the main page to find it (unless I'm missing something). Placing a direct link to the Draft Forum right on this page above the threads would be very convenient for me, and others, I'm sure, plus it would certainly increase traffic on that forum - so there's something good for you guys too! thanks.

    Or why not scrap the sub forums and set the default to the index? :help:

    I fixed that too Sey. I know you had mentioned that a while ago and I just fixed the redirect so it takes you to the main index. I apologize for taking so long to fix it.
