Why isn't Breaking General News on the front page? I was sure it used to be, but that was a long time ago.

Anyway - I would have thought this thread would have brought some interest.

Where else could I have posted it?

Subway Derailment in Manhattan Injures Dozens

Just curious.

Thanks

Why? Because the front page is reserved for the Political Mud Pit, Civil Unrest and Political Madness. Anything to stir up the natives.

NO. LOL!

YOu generally need a good 35 Flags on any given day to work into the top 5 bracket, those are all top Flagged so you gotta beat those.

You the rest beneath you need lots of responses generally at least 100.

I must be remembering it wrong - I thought it used to be on the first page - but I've not been here in ages.

I could care less about that - thanks. Just wondering why things changed or if I rememberd it right. I might not have.

Basically any forum can make front page, it just needs the flags and replies to get it there.

Does the thread you are talking about have the flags and replies to get it on the front page?

Answer-no, it does not.

It has 8 flags and 6 responses.

I moved it to Other Current Events.

Even though there is supposed to be a conspiracy slant to threads in OCE, often there is not.

Are there some forums that can not get front page status?

Besides the obvious like information and collaboration forums

Like I said, I just don't remember it that way. Thank you though.

Did it change over the past 4-5 years? That's all I'm cusious about.

Thank you though - I was sorry no one saw what NY had to go through this morning.

peace

Breaking General news and the other Off Topic forums are not on the main page IIRC.
And AFAIK, it has been that way all along.

Thanks - now I know I just lost my mind a little.
