CMT: Technical Update on Announcements

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

"Details of what was included in today's lunchtime release are in my technical update blog post"

Why are we having to read a blog ?

Just post the information on the announcement board

Interesting suggestion. Having to think this one through. :-)

The reason I am doing it this way is that I intend to write a Technical Update for each release, and the Blog section allows these to be easier to group. I also intend to publish some screen shots in future and include lists. The Boards don't allow me that flexibility.

Other sites ie rootschat allow such things as pictures and screen shots, Phil, so surely genes reunited could enable them, too?

I tend to forget about blogs and only looked at one just now because I looked at your link in the announcements board.

An Information board is something that I would take notice of and would remember it; blogs, no, sorry, I doubt I would remember them and, for some people in this site after certain shenanigans a while ago, just the word blog leaves a nasty taste in the mouth.
