Just a question

Postby Rob Allanson » Mon Jan 05, 2009 2:20 pm

Dear All,

This year I want to start putting more up to date news on here but I was just wondering what format you all fancied.

I can just post what I get, ie in press release format - allowing everyone to comment, or I can cut and rewrite...

let me know please.

How about just posting what you get, and then have 'Robs Comment' under it where you can write a few words about it.

:thumbsup:

Yeah just keep it simple.

My favourite for news for me is lfw news section, although it is purely on releases it is easy and i check it daily.

So if you could include industry/distillery news and new releases i'm sure it will be fine.

I agree with Matt, paste and maybe a comment would be a good way to go.

I think that would be a great format. Good call. It would be nice to read a couple of different viewpoints on a subject.

I think Matt nailed it right there. The original release and then the WM view.

Thats what I have been trying to do. If you have a look at what I have been posting so far - i comment first and then comes the press release.

hope that suits.....
