    Well, I certainly feel special! I'm not sure what exactly this means, but my 'coldest gig' is now an article? Thanks to whomever did this!

    I always thought it was automated based on keywords and number of replies, stuff like that.

    Could be someone actually reviews these things and decides, but there is a lot of stuff in here....

    Good for you, you old sweathog! :cheers2:

    Actually, I think it might have been a mistake. I'm not seeing it on the homepage.

    I have absolutely no idea of what you speak of.

    Seriously. What's an "article" as it relates to a forum?

    I dunno Dave. I just got an alert (I think the avatar was Alex's) the other day saying my 'Coldest Night Gig' thread was promoted to an article. :dunno:

    Articles appear on the very first page (http://www.mylespaul.com/). They aere a selction of threads from the forum.

    I havn`t a clue how the selection is made, it is definatly not based on the number of views or responses as others would appear.

    A manual selection also seems unlikley are there is some wierd sh1t there (sorry if I insult someone who does the manual selection :D)
