  •  Er ... isn't there only one "Mothership" diary? (1+ / 0-)

    This seems absurd.

    Having a shifting "Mothership" won't help me and my fellow Kossacks in NYC and NJ get information tomorrow when we need it.

    Where are the "meta" gods and goddesses when we need them?

      One person cannot keep going the whole time.

      This is technically a first child diary which is why I put that in the title.

      Terrypinder won't be updating his anymore so it has to pass to the next person.

      They will always be on the rec list just look for the newest one.

        Which themselves may be compilations of other diary links.  Minimal updating to the Mothership diary is involved. There is no such thing as a "Mothership" that is a child diary.

        Hello?

        I've been here since 2004. Do we really need to learn how to do this over again?  This was perfected in 2008.  What happened?

          is not polished. I haven't done one of these in a few years.

          How would you prefer I title it to satisfy you?

          •  The title is not the issue (0+ / 0-)

            The way the "Mothership" vs the related sub-diaries are related is the issue.

              If you remember, I started the CA Wildfire diaries with the first "Mothership".

              After 4 days, we had to go to another Mothership as my diary could not stay on the rec list after that amount of time.

              From what I've read/seen here, this is a new mothership diary for Sandy as terrypinder's had fallen off the rec list.

              Calling this a "child" diary is really the only mistake made, which can be easily changed.

              For those of you unaware, the point of a Mothership is to keep only one main thread going on the rec list.

              Everyone should rec the Mothership diaries and use them to catch updated info in by clicking the links for the child diaries enclosed within the Mothership diary.

              As days go by, there will be occasion to have a new Mothership diary take the place of the old one falling off the rec list.  ONLY rec the Mothership - read and tip the child diaries with NO rec given to them.
