News Feedback and Updates
Posted 21 January 2008 - 07:22 PM
We're almost into a new season, and with changes to the media landscape occurring at a remarkable pace, I thought it was time to hear what you all think of our baby.
I'd like constructive criticism, feedback, comments on what you think of The Spy Report and how you think it can be improved.
Please understand, I have no choice but to ignore comments like "it sucks" or "it roolz." That, frankly, tells me nothing and is wasting my time as I, and our valuable and hard-working contributors, look to improve the site in 2008.
<b>Constructive criticism only please.</b>
We're trying to run a genuine, interesting and informative off-shoot of Media Spy and it is imperative that we are hitting the mark.
Please vote in the poll as well.

I don't think its open enough for users to submit stories or links to possible stories, the spywire isn't really suitable for that in my opinion.

Use a cpatcha to stop spam?

I don't think we are planning on stopping, just wanting to make it better.

I was just saying, don't stop. Doesn't mean you are, just another way to say its great.

I'm okay with periods when there are no updates; I read other media news sources as well, and if there's no update, it's invariably because there's nothing of substance to report. I'd rather not update the report for the sake of it; that just undermines its credibility as an information source.

Which brings me to the bad bit.
I don't want to seem too much like I'm bitching, but some of the articles read about as well as the instruction manual for a $20 DVD player. I'm not being pedantic about the wrongful placement of a comma or spelling mistake, I'm talking about it seeming like there was absolutely no proof-reading done, which is just wacked.

that was the point - it was a press release
Thanks Woz, one to improve on.
