U2 Latest News Section?
« on: October 14, 2017, 08:07:12 PM »
Hi. Is there going to be a U2 Latest News & Rumours section in the forum or will posts of that type go into the General U2 Talk section? Just curious. :)

Currently I was thinking that we could just have the general U2 forum for both discussions of U2 and news/rumors—I noticed on the old forum that these posts frequently overlapped and it could be hard to distinguish where the posts should go. But I would like to hear from you guys and get your input: would you like a combined approach or separate forums?

an rumor section would be nice for all things not that urgent, but nice to read over it.

Yeah, the news and rumors section on atu2 was convenient. Can we have that back?

I always considered that the General board was just for SOE discussions in general, whereas the News and Rumors board was for SOE news and speculations.

That's a good point. We're going to discuss this administratively and take it into consideration.  :)

Also think a concert section with a thread for each show makes sense. Maybe a mod posts set lists uneditable after the fact and attendees can post experiences

I agree that it would be great.

However, remember it's challenging. unlike posting content, which can be done at a persons leisure, if news isn't posted as it happens, we will all still get our news elsewhere. It requires a few of us to commit to a combination of timeliness and quality.

For example, U2 plays Sao Paulo tonight. To post about it is fairly straightforward. To post it fast enough, and with decent enough quality, requires a time commitment - someone to say - yes, I will follow a livestream and post it on a saturday night.....

Just sayin'

It is something we are looking at.....we have a news section on our homepage  talku2.com

As codeguy says it does involve a lot and it is worth remembering that the forum is a chat board as opposed to a news site/fan site...

One thing i noticed about the atu2 forum was it had a massive amount of members but a huge amount of those read rather than chatted - I wonder if that was because they saw the forum more as a place to find the latest news than a place to chat.

For me the forum here is a place to chat more than it is a place to find the latest news.

That said we would be silly not to listen to what the most important people here namely the people who visit here suggest/want so the issue is very much under consideration among the admin and mods....

Thanks for raising and rest assured 'answers' will be coming soon.

In the meantime please check out our albeit still a work in progress latest news page on our homepage.

Thanks for pointing out the homepage! I found the forum from a link and didn't even see the rest of the site! I take your and Codeguy's points. Atu2 was quite slow to publish stuff to the homepage so I think a lot of people just went right to the news / rumours section on the forum. What is useful is that there is a sort of one stop place to get all the latest. Homepage or forum doesn't really matter
