    on the Rec list for liveblogging fast breaking events. That way the breaking news for the topic only takes up one spot on the valuable rec list real estate. The current news posts and discussion takes place in the current ROV that is linked at the top of the mothership.

    ROVs (Remote Operated underwater Vehicle) are basically child diaries that are tethered to the mothership via links.

    Some people just want to take a quick peek at the mothership, others may follow the group stream without even bothering to look at the mothership so there will be some info duplication in the mothership and ROVs.

    The dairies in which you are participating may not be ROVs which are all listed. Boatsie has been including related diaries as links. If you think one or more should be included please provide links. If you want to find diaries in which you have commented go to My Page > Comments.

    I don't know how Wikipedia works so can't comment on that.

    Hope this helps explain things.
