I appreciate those who keep it up to date but some of those entries are stretching the reason for the calendar a bit.

Throwing it out there - do people actually look at it? Or the ticker at the top of the homepage (including updated pres sites)? I'm wondering whether it's a feature worth keeping for any future redesign.

I don't know how many people actually read the words in the ticker for pres sites as for several months at one point I was quietly sending through dedicated pseudo-haikus in the update text for TV Whirl and not one person ever noted it or asked about it. Razz However the inbound traffic stats show people do click on the ticker link.

As you say Asa it's useful for the more noteable events but recently it's been used for anything and everything rather than presentation changes and the launch of landmark events.
It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

Hate to be kind of nitpicking but I think the feature at the bottom of the page for posts with high Kudos isn't really working because we need context. The current one is "I don't really know." and without knowing that BM11 said "but why Mavis" for the person being killed off in Corrie 10000, that sounds like a rather boring out-of-context sentence, and there's been plenty of examples before too. Maybe it could be reworked so that you can see context too with the posts before it (if required)?

You can click where it says (in the current example) "Spencer in Coronation Street" and the thread its come from is the kudosed post.
