So I've been thinking more about that "News" category you guys keep wanting. What about a "World News" category? It's a bit more specific and seems to fit the use case.

@Walshy and @Prophecy you've both commented on this in the past, thoughts?

Be down, seeing as I post live threads and other news a bit
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
Yeah that's what I figured. Just calling it "News" is what I didn't like, but "World News" hints a bit more at the content within.

If ever you feel like finding old and relevant threads, feel free to tag them haha

Only suggestion I'd make is that it removes the tag from stories that are older than a month, that way people can browse news for the past month and view it in an 'up-to-date' fashion.

I was thinking about a "live" tag but that might not be necessary.
Small 7a9faee82b68e132da7b22ea96e73de6
Things are timed, dated and displayed in order so removing tags would not really serve a reasonable purpose and would go against the idea of the tag system. (edited)

That's true, I was more thinking along the lines of a 'trending news' thing but that does the same thing for those that are actually interested in looking.
Small 7a9faee82b68e132da7b22ea96e73de6
Ah I get your point. I think the need for live news is served by sites and communities on Reddit etc we'll enough that a highlights or "Of note" works well in LBs system.
Small 489d0b326072d6c93ccfe41d5a57e5e9
I personally don't browse Reddit at all.

There's a few dedicated news sites doing the live feeds these days also. Once the tag gets some use you can set a filter using them and sorting order to get a similar result. Not quite what your suggesting of course ;)
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
As the feeds currently work you'll get it in chronological order if you use the "All" or "Latest" filters and then chronological with a bit of a shuffle for "Trending". Unless something is super, super, super active "Trending" is going to remain a pretty up-to-date and relevant feed. I'd even argue that if a piece of news gets that much activity that it remains at the top of trending it probably deserves to be there. At the end of the day users of the site have the power to view the feed using the filter they prefer and can happily opt to see it in unfiltered reverse chronological order.

There's filters? Fuck, that's why I can't find old posts sometimes.
