View Full Version : End of the News, as we know it

03-28-2007, 12:19 PM
SWJ ceased publishing the Daily News Links (http://smallwarsjournal.com/news/worm.htm) with the Early Edition of 28 Mar 07, in order to invest more heavily in other aspects of the site. We plan to put up various news feeds soon that will be a partial substitute. They won't replace the manually authored version, but will mitigate the loss while allowing us to concentrate on other areas that will be of greater value to our community in the long term. Here are our other mitigating plans:

We will place more news commentary in the SWJ Blog (http://smallwarsjournal.com/blog/), including what basically used to be the Top Stories of the old Daily News Links.

We'll post miscellaneous news of interest, when it catches our eye, to The Whole News (http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/forumdisplay.php?f=7) and Blog Watch (http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/forumdisplay.php?f=13) forums of the Small Wars Community of Interest (http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/forumdisplay.php?f=14) section of the Small Wars Council (http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/index.php). These are also great places for members to post news links, and we hope that the community will step in where we are falling back, posting links you see, and going there to catch articles you might not have seen otherwise. A good number of those threads will elicit few or no replies, even thought they'll be well read and appreciated. For those that do spawn involved threads, we'll look to moderate out to other relevant forums, leaving a re-direct from the news forum.
