Quite huge at the moment, with 20+ posts and 10+ downloads waiting to be processed. Real Life, eh....

Anyone interested in joining the glamorous world of MRC content management?

Snout, count me in. I'm willing and able. It's the least I can do, considering all the years I've been using MRC for free. Best way to get the queue done is by wearing a glamorous MSX shirt. Wish I had one... Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Maybe it's a good idea not to finish the queue at once Wink Some news will never make it to the frontpage that way ;-) Just spread it out over a few days,,,

@wolf_ Yeah, can understand processing half-baked news submits can be tedious work..
Don't know if it's easy to reject a submit + give reason, so submitter may improve the post himself?

That is a good suggestion/idea. Probably this will help. I noticed also that i added some images to the download area which are to big (it seems). But what is the proper resolution to use?

Don't get met wrong: I am very happy that there seems to be coming a solution for this issue, but the above statement is a bit "the world upside down".
It's a "submit news button", and not a "submit a complete article" button. Relevant information about formatting, ratio's, sizes, file-formats, etc... are not mentioned. So we're not talking about "half-baked news submits". If they want to receive full articles, they should ask for it and supply the necessary information.
"Half baked news submits" makes it sound like half work from the news-submitter, while the news backlog is here due to lack of support from the msx.org team.

tfh: that's right, I'm merely stating that it speeds up the process, not that it's an ideal situation. I recall, from my days, Prodatron submitted a ready-to-post newspost about Symbos once. It was @ the frontpage within minutes simply because it was post-ready.

I know... That was why I responded to Ren, not you ;-)

Well, if it helps admins, one that submits news *should* make their lives as easy as possible (like a common responsibility).
I see there are no guidelines given, but perhaps they should provide them then..
I'm not saying anything about the reason of the current hold-up. I guess there are (more or less) ready-to-post items in there alright.

Maar.. Lekker belangrijk allemaal, enjoy your day(s) (peeps)!

Ro and niek, thanks a lot to help us out! I changed your userstatus to moderator so you can now see and handle the newsqueue....

Could you please send me an e-mail with your phonenumber so I can add you to the MRC Whatsapp Group? There we can talk you through some guidelines and what boxes to check to get the news posted the right way Smile

I hope bringing this issue up and pushing a bit on getting it going helped a bit ;-)
BTW, my news-submit about file-hunter.com is a bit out-dated now. I mentioned there almost wasn't anything new on the site, but now there is. I'll just make a new submit :)
