Which pretty much defeats the initiative.

Like I said, Jude should spend some time checking out Deadspin for ideas how to present the snark without getting too heavy handed about it.

oh for fucks sake
how does this defeat the initiative? oats is still here. Snarky articles didn't run him off, and unless you are saying that Bleu, Jude, Lord S, nieto, and anyone else with access to the stats are lying, then the gains the OH has seen since the initiative outshine the few less hits the front page gets from current members.

your argument is that because some members, who probably never really cared about the articles before, go somewhere else for news it doesn't matter that the site's stats are up across the board. Obviously the initiative has failed, you can tell by its success.
:roll:

also, just because you repeat yourself / don't like the results it doesn't mean Jude and the team isn't taking cues from other sites, maybe he doesn't need the guidance of an unfunny non-lawyer who can't see how it might benefit his own blog if the OH attracts more readers to the front page

Maybe instead of focusing on the stuff people don't like, they should provide positive feedback to the stuff they do like, thus encouraging those writers to write more and making them feel like their work is appreciated. My last VS. has, I believe, 0 comments. Red and Blue Reviews put out at least 3 columns in the last week, with less than 5 comments between them.

we've lost many a good features because no one seemed to care

The "I can't separate the news from the snark" responses make me sad for the current state of reading comprehension taught in our public schools.

It's "Spider-Man" not "spiderman".

I know I don't come here for comic news, or glee news, or any news really. I just came here after the 'rama went south and I wanted a forum that had most of the same community. The place has changed quite a bit since then though.

not for nothing, in the UCP you can turn off all the news stuff from showing up in the asylum
ignore Loltron and if you (not YOU you) want to see news, go to the front page

Jude has built in so many ways to set this place up as individually as people want that viable excuse to people who don't care about the news having Loltron articles in their way
