      on the front page.

      Yet, for the wildfires liveblog, important hearings, etc., nobody will put the main "mothership" diary on the front page.

      Makes me think twice about spending my time liveblogging here.  Maybe we need another place where we could get some help from admins, or maybe create a site dedicated to liveblogging.

      I'm not one to get into complaining about meta stuff, but this really got to me.

        if you were so put off as to stop playing in our liveblogs.  for serious - your contributions are always so stellar.

        i did see the world series liveblog on the FP.  all i can guess, if it's even my place to do so, is that it was a weekend.

        maybe i'm missing something here, because i don't quite get what is to be had from FPing liveblog sessions.  is the goal to get more prominence for the mothership?  i just don't see how FP is better than the rec list for those purposes.

        is it something else?

        please keep playing in the sandbox!

          would keep us from having to stand on our heads getting recommends to keep the mothership diary on the rec list.

            especially if one gets a really good launch - there was one in the fireblog series that lasted a good couple days, like any usual rec list diary.  

            it's unusual to need more than or two.  and especially now that motherships are for cat herding and not general commentary, we're sure not to cycle through too many.

            we can haz joanneleyun in sanboks?
