Hey, if we submit news, might it get posted to the front page?

I've submitted a few items I stumbled across while at work... and they seem to have never made it to the front page. I can see a few of them being not of importance, but still... I never know if I should go and do it myself or wait for Management to do it then. Should I just stop sending in news items unless I can post them, or what?

I don't get the News e-mails anymore and I think Nav's been away. We should make you a news editor. Hang on I'll see if I can do that...

Can I be an admin?

it wasn't that.

I first started sending news in to the news@ thing, back when we first moved.

And I've sent in a few pieces of news I've come across while on a surfing break at work.

Guess from now on, I'll try to save the few newspieces I come across until I get home and surf in to CG to do the news authoring from now on.

Why am I not an admin yet?

Follow up.

I do not have access to news authoring capability, after all. So no news for the front page, since noone bothers monitoring the news@counterglow.com address.

No biggie. Just news on CM4, MoO3 final in stone ship date (according to an email from the publisher), SimCity4 being delivered to my door... that sort of thing.

Might we reset my news author privs? The password seems corrupt, or something on the account itself is messed up. And since there is no front page for the admin that one can access and ask it to send what it thinks is the password to your email...

err there is a link from the frontpage of admin... but here it is anyway.

http://www.counterglow.com/admin.php?action=lostpw

password wouldnt be the same as your cg one unless you changed it to be.

You cannot access the frontpage of the admin without *SIGNING IN*. It asks for your ID and password. So, you cannot access the 'send me what YOU think it is, CG' link without being able to sign in.

I don't get the news@counterglow e-mails anymore, I assume someone does though? They should be able to put the news up.

Ok. That's just weird. Admin goes to somewhere different then Admin.php? /Admin/? Weird...

Nav
