Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

9. [NEW] Requests for material (such as video/audio clips of presentation elements, programmes, theme tunes) is not permitted.
This feels like one of those laws that is written too vaguely and ends up accidentally banning cats.

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Thank fuck the News channel presenter issues are over, though sure some members will still find a way to bring it up every few days.

Now onto the fourth page of analysis of what would have been literally just 0.001% of the channel's output yesterday. Also willing to bet that none of the people whinging about it saw it live.

The GMB thread isn't one I frequent, but happened to click today and, my God, I didn't realise that was another for the 'never visit' list.

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Is there any way to mute the names of the five 'News channel presenters' so that I don't have to constantly see the same speculation about a situation that nobody on the forum knows anything about?

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

I’ve long since made peace with the fact that the majority over there dislike any form of change Not sure this is wholly fair, after all, any branding that is more than 18 months old is automatically 'tired' and needs to change. Though, of course, whether the changes are accepted when they happen i...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

What is it about Sky News that makes people very insistent on making consistently specifically wrong 'spellings'? There is at least one member who always types it as SKY News, and another who I notice is now writing it as SkyNews. Obviously, a very minor point, but, with two members doing it, I just...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Regardless of people's thoughts on individual members, I can't say I particularly understand the rationale or care for the execution of this posting subject to approval. Surely, if somebody has broken the rules or their posts are so repeatedly contentious that they need to be pre-moderated, they sho...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Loving all the hyperbole in the BBC News thread 👍 Really? Where? Of the many discussions that have occurred in that thread, it's one of the few where I don't think I've seen really anybody veer off into 'end of the world' territory. Pretty much the broad consensus is that the launch of these progra...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

The BBC News merger stuff is a little hysterical at times isn’t it 100% Some seem to be treating it as a death in the family The thing I don't get is the absolute persistence of the 'it'll be BBC World News except in name' narrative. At every stage of the phase-in, particularly the 'interim' period...
