View Full Version : "Featured" Blogs

09-03-2010, 11:09 AM
In the blogs section of the site, there is a "featured blogs" section, which would be a lovely feature, if it wasn't so stupid. In the last couple of days, I have seen:
Blogs from a couple of months ago, where the subject is now irrelevant
A blog from one of the spambots
A blog entry spamming their first blog for teh LBPCXP troffeess.
Someone else posting that they didn't receive an LBPCXP trophy.

So, I assume, it just grabs random blog entries and highlights them. Can we please just disable the feature, as it's not adding any value to the site and, if anything, it's just devaluing the blogs section.

I've noticed that too, is works as fine as the cool pages of LBP...

Yeah I completely agree. It's mostly just for the trophies for a lot of people but there are some who take it seriously like fastbro for example with his blog. I really don't care if it gets removed or not. I only had one reply that wasn't by mefor my entries and since a lot of people already spam it and I think I do much better just using blogger instead of the lbpc blog system then I'm okay if it's removed and if not, that's fine also but I don't think I'll be going there much.

Ummmm, I not talking about removing the blogging feature, simply the "featured blogs" that appear at the top of the page.

Though I may consider going back to infracting people for spam blogs....
