So you might want to update your In the News section.

I think Trump's said something.
Brexit still means Brexit
NHS is in crisis

If you mean the talk topic, then it's up to us to generate new content.

I thought that bit on the side was simply the most active threads

amispartacus Sun 15-Jan-17 19:58:16

I thought the In the News bit on the side was just anything that was newsworthy.

No matter what area it's posted in.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 15-Jan-17 20:06:38

in the news has been awfully stagnant for quite a while.

amispartacus Sun 15-Jan-17 20:08:41

I'm sure Trump will liven things up.

President Trump inauguarated
Trump tweets about China
Trump tweets about North Korea
Nuclear missiles on standby
You've got 3 minutes

Theresa May did a speech today. It was quite important.
Bet there's a thread somewhere about it.

Brexit threads will be in their own topic, not in "In The News" so wouldn't be picked up to go on the sidebar.

Yes - but In the News covers things that are newsworthy - and not necessarily in the News topic.

2 of them are in Chat
3 of them are in the News.

Otherwise what's the point of that space - they could put more sponsorship places there.

Must admit I've been a bit perplexed by the 'In the News' section - do you think MNHQ have forgotten it's there?

BeyondTheStarryNight Wed 18-Jan-17 00:04:41

Never should have been taken off the links at the bottom of the page...

(I'm sure I will get over this one day...!)

Hi Everyone, sounds like we're not making the most of In the News, I shall pass the message on to the big cheeses. smile

amispartacus Fri 20-Jan-17 17:41:27

There's some news at the moment. grin

BeyondCanSeeTheEmperorsBellend Fri 20-Jan-17 17:47:38

National courgette shortage, apparently grin

amispartacus Sun 22-Jan-17 09:53:02

sounds like we're not making the most of In the News

Meanwhile in the news, there's a national courgette shortage.

Anything else?

BeyondCanSeeTheEmperorsBellend Sun 22-Jan-17 10:01:57

Certainly nothing of note happening on the other side of the pond grin

ChuckSnowballs Sun 22-Jan-17 10:05:38

Anything else?

Biggest demonstration by women [and men] in the history of women.

But courgettes...they pretty much run the world so priorities...

bibbitybobbityyhat Sun 22-Jan-17 10:08:02

No one posts in In The News. It's not HQ's fault (although I do think they should move stuff out of chat and aibu and in to the relevant topic but that's just me).

Heratnumber7 Sun 22-Jan-17 10:19:32

Also in the news - Andy Murray.

amispartacus Sun 22-Jan-17 10:27:17

No one posts in In The News

Yes but the In the News SIDEBAR on the right is what we are talking about. Not the In the News forum.

MN take some threads about things in the news that are anywhere on MN and puts links to them.

BeyondCanSeeTheEmperorsBellend Sun 22-Jan-17 13:24:50

Yep - the 'in the news' sidebar links to threads anywhere, not just those in "in the news" (bit of a confusing sentence!)

bibbitybobbityyhat Sun 22-Jan-17 15:19:10

Oh I see. I thought that sidebar just linked to threads in In The News grin.

Which is why, I thought, it always looks so lame, lurking there under the cheesy video links to recipes and podcasts and other fripperies.

amispartacus Tue 24-Jan-17 09:43:11

I'll give you 3.

Toast and cancer
Trump becomes President.
Court rules on the EU court case.

Don't forget:

Tiggy has bit of a cold.

Big news this week - Tom Hardy is going to be on cbeebies...

OlennasWimple Sat 28-Jan-17 11:40:38

Chelsea Manning's sentence being commuted is an odd choice to still be hanging around in the In The News section...
