Become a J2O newsposter, now!

10 May 2007 at 16:20

Want to be a newsposter? Now, you can!

At least one feature of MyRabbit 2.0 has now actually been implemented for real. The eternally dead user news/opinion section of J2O, RabbitJournal, has received a large update. Now it’s directly linked to the front page news.

This means that any stories you submit to RabbitJournal have the potential to make it to the front page of Jazz2Online. These stories could be clan/levelgroup announcements, posts about events in the community or events that you wish to organize, important opinions or “features” of community content.

Whether this actually happens is up to you: you can vote on stories. Any stories with at least five votes and an admin’s approval will reach the frontpage.

Have fun.

Update: Protection has been added against tricking users into voting and the minimum of votes required has been increased to 5. Please do not try to mess up the site on purpose.
Update 2: Script works again.

I have been having fun with this system, however theres a slight error in it.

If a journal entry was written on August 8th 2004, it won’t appear on the front page, it instead appears with the other August 2004 news 39 pages or so away from the front page.

Yeah, that was some good fun. Thanks for making me have to manually fix things in the db. :P
And, in seriousness, thanks for showing how the system can be abused.

I will do something with that error/quirk ASAP but it will not be an easy fix.

That news bug has been fixed.
