I am terminating this project after 24 hours. It showed promise but I'm not going to further waste my time right now;I'm fucking pissed. Why? Let me quote from one of the RSS threads I erased.

MD, you're bitching barely 24 hours into this, a good chunk of which I spent updating the software running this site and trying to deliver something cool for all of you. The proper response is THANK YOU, constructive criticism,or no response at all. I invite you in the future to be part of the solution or shut the fuck up.

The initial concept was to pull in stories with a specific band name in the thread title. Unfortunately, vbulletin's filter parses by single word only. That means the term King Diamond would actually grab any word ending in -king. Similiarly, Dio would pull in any title with the word studio in it, a common enough occurance.

Word filters, even when they work, do not understand 'interesting', so that can't be helped. Furthermore, the posts are only summaries. I know summaries aren't as interesting as full stories but at least it's a head up. Unless I manually post stories, our news forum isn't very useful. It's take too much time to do news -- it's not what we're about -- and then there's the issue of copying content from other sites, the reason I am extremely anal about sourcing and then posting the hooks rather than full copy.

Personally, I'd rather delete a few threads here and there or put up with non-interesting threads (which I don't have to click on) and have a feed automated.

Keep in mind we're talking about Blabbermouth. It is the best thing going in metal news but it's not perfect. Neither will any feed sourced from it.

Relax man, just cause one person thought it sucked doesn't mean everyone does.


But if you change your mind about killing it, then throw Manowar and 'Iced Earth' on the list plz.

Maybe you could try putting all the posts about news into one 'news' thread instead of creating a new thread for every story and clogging the forum. It wouldn't really leave room for comments but if someone really wanted to say something they could start their own thread.
