Hey everyone. This is your friendly site Admin. Just wanted to update the community on a few changes to the Blue Commonwealth starting this weekend.
1. You may or may not have heard that there were some serious security concerns among the front-pagers' group last week. As a result, it was necessary to scale the number of default-front-pagers on BC back dramatically. Previously, we had 40, currently we have 13. It was a fun experiment to have such a large crew, but unfortunately a few people proved for us that it couldn't work.
From now on, if you'd like to request that a post be front-paged, just shoot an email to email@example.com, and we'll be happy to promote your post, assuming it meets our standards (more to come on standards next week).
2. Previously, non-front-pagers weren't allowed to embed videos, again for security reasons. I fixed that, so now everyone can. Knock yourself out with video.
3. I'm going to open up the press list to the community in the next few days. Look for a new site feature that will display campaign press releases like blog posts (while keeping them separate from the main blog).
That's all for now. Enjoy your weekend, and happy blogging!
