    Lack of "News" postings

    Advertisement



    Is anybody else disappointed at the lack of posting on the main page since the switch in management? I mean, seriously, its been a month since anything worth posting has been seen. What about the 3mhz processor that's been posted on phandroid? Or, what about the Galaxy Tab that is everywhere on the net except here?

    If this stuff I on the forums, I apologize for the accusation. But this is the kind of stuff that should be on the front page. Or anything worth looking at really. Its been almost a month with no updates.

    I have noticed it as well in passing, although I generally go straight to the forums.

    We are actually looking for people who might have some extra time to post such front page news, gets. PM me if you're interested.

    Thanks Roger, can I post it from my mobile? If I can do that I'll most likely get with you on that. Can I let others know if they want to post also?

    I'm not exactly sure how to take that post. Are you agreeing with me or are you arguing that its been like that because people don't have anything to post?

    There's plenty of Smartphone news to post. I think there's just some confusion that might be rooted in the ownership change here and what expectations are. Although only an amateur, I'm taking the hint and will start posting again!

    LOL, thanks Mark. I was hoping that I could get some of yalls fires going again. I miss the new news on the front page every week.

    I still need to know if I can do this from my phone. Is it just like what I'm doing now, or is there more detail that has to be put into it?

    I would PM Roger, as he requested, and discuss all the details with him. BTW, thanks for the kick-in-the-pants to get us going again on the artcles - you are a true Stacker!!

    I completely agree. I am quite dissapointed too. For me the "pinstack" interest started purely due to the main page. Infact, for many many months, I only read the front page. It simply struck me as an amazing place for anything and everything blackberry. Then it branched into anything and everything "smartphone" which was even better, IMO, since I am obsessed with mobile technology and smartphones.

    It's been quite a while since anything interesting has been posted. To be fair though, not much has been really happening. Yea droid x, droid 2, blackberry torch, ...but nothing ground breaking, again IMO.

    Anyway, hoping that it's because 1.) nothing big is happening, and 2.) because people are busy.

    I check 'pinstack.com' 2-3 times a day (without even thinking about it) just to see if something new has popped up. Just the other day it occurred to me that the last thing was almost from a month ago.

    Something that concerns me is the crackdown on the web in general for unathorized use of copyrighted materials, e.g. pictures and articles. A person must be very careful these days in posting articles and photos.

    For websites like this one, it falls under "fair use", so it's ok.
    (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use)

    "Fair use is a doctrine in United States copyright law that allows limited use of copyrighted material without requiring permission from the rights holders, such as for commentary, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching or scholarship."

    Of course, there *are* limits to this. I have seen people post images of screen shots and label them with "some screenshots I took", when infact, they have been taken by someone else. That's a no no

    But still in that fact, all you need to do is the credit the source youre getting the info from. Thats where people get into trouble, they dont give credit to the people and they get pissed about it.
