I'm happy to announce we're now pulling in mandolin related articles from The Bluegrass Blog into the News Feed section. By the end of the week we expect to add mandolin related news from Cybergrass.
I've explained this previously, but for those of you that didn't see it or didn't understand what this was, sites like the Cafe, JazzMando.com, Mandolin Archive, mandolin.org.uk and many others have a way of sharing articles through some technology called RSS - Really Simple Syndication. This forum software can auto-fetch and post that news from those sites when it's made available and that's exactly what we're doing. I think it provides news and information from different perspectives and it's all good and healthy for us.
Also, when I set this area up initially I removed it from the "New Posts" search because I was concerned about these potentially overwhelming the regular discussions. May reverse that decision soon. If anyone has an opinion on that be glad to hear from you.
