The Press board replaces the Bitcoin press hits, notable sources thread.  The original motivation of the thread was to collect links that fit Wikipedia's definition of Notability.  Once bitcoin was deemed sufficiently notable (a milestone!), the thread became an ongoing log of links.  Discussion was discouraged.

The Press board is a great improvement.  These general guidelines should help keep the board usable:

  • Create a new thread for each new link
  • Begin each thread with article date, YYYY-MM-DD format.
  • Thread title should usefully summarize the link.  julz has suggested DATE-SITE-HEADLINE format, but use your best judgement.
  • Duplicate links, off-topic, and meta discussions may be moderated (locked or whatever the mods prefer)
  • Post a link to the NEW articles thread.

As always, comments and suggestions welcome!  The main goal is to keep the noise down.

Does smf allow the sort order to be ordered chronologically by first post instead of being by Last Post?

Otherwise new posts that don't get any comments will get buried below all the older posts that are still seeing comments.

Either way, +1 on this move.  A place for discussions on these press items was needed.

Hi Jeff,  I'm wondering why you chose this particular day to lock the other topic and start this one?

Did you know just yesterday http://bitcoinpress.com was launched with a similar intent?

Perhaps only coincidence.

Probably because theymos got around to creating the "press" sub-board just today.

Just put the ISO 8601 formatted date as the first part of the subject for any press hits.
Click on the 'subject' column - and it should all sort correctly.

Yes, I see. Just that the timing of such did make me a bit curious.

I noticed theymos moved the 'Bitcoin hits' thread to the new Press board, and jumped on that.

Funny. I think the point of time was chosen by my. I remembered the idea somehow (maybe relevant thread bump) and PMed theymos about the subboard. Only a little later did I discover bitcoinress.com.

I assure it was not intentional.

It is definitely easier to navigate the articles having them in their own section!

Isnt there a way to fix the position of articles, so that the chronological order doesnt fuck up, once someone comments on something?

I always used ISO 8601 for my pics folders. Since 1996.

You guys have really come up with somethin'

But there is no thread that shows up under "new replies" which is what many people use to see what's relevant to them. 

Perhaps what is needed is a post that acts as an index to the other posts.  This would be locked and only the post author can add to it maybe, to keep it from becoming another "press hits" thread.   Thoughts?

Because I don't want to spam, should we be including all articles in the Bitcoin Magazine here as well?

Not sure how it ought to be titled, but bitcoin gets mentioned several times in We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec, Anonymous, and the Global Cyber Insurgency.
