    We DO have an entire news staff that constantly updates news feeds. The news articles accompanied by photos aren't updated as quickly or as often because even we are restricted by copyright and licensing use laws. This issue has been visited and revisited. News is updated daily. The photo accompanied news you speak of can only be updated so quickly due to the reasons cited.

    You're entitled to your view and we agree on most all points except the "we have the right" part. I'm not saying you are wrong, I just don't agree. The forums is what draws me here, not the so called news they post.

    There are other police sites I visit that have better news and not so good forums, so I go there to read news. I come here to argue, banter and have a good time. That works fine for me.

    i never said they HAD to do anything but as consumers we absolutely have the right to complain. they are paid by proxy. if no one visits the site and buys things from advertisers then o.com goes out of business.

    it is their site but believe me, cygnus doesn't have this site just to be nice to police and give us a place to visit while online. it's a business and they are only in it to make money. they should start running it as such.

    I don't know what gives us that right, it's their site, they pay for it, we don't. They can do or not do whatever they want with it. I'm not saying nobody should complain, I'm saying we have no leverage. If anybody does, then it's their advertisers.

    the bottom line is this compnay needs us to come to the site. they need hits to keep drawing advertisers. so if they are losing hits b/c they simply cant update the news they are potentially losing business. we have every right to complain about that. without us visiting the site they aren't getting paid.

    besides, i know it's someone's job to update the news. how hard can it be? it sends the message that the staff doesn't really care about keeping the site up.

    But you don't, so they aren't going to listen. Complain all you want, you're just shouting in the dark. I'm not paying one red cent to post on a forum, especially one as heavily advertised as this one. If you want change, do what we do to troll posts, ignore them until they disappear. They'll get the message real fast. If you want free, verified LEOs and secure, go to a competitor site.

    Damn bro, let it go! I stopped going to the main page here at O.com well over a year or so ago because they don't keep fresh news up there. Like you, I've been getting my daily LE news from another source/website. The forums here are saved in my fav's so I just come here right off the bat.


    Some things sure aren't kept up around here like they very EASILY could/should be.

    News on main page...AGAIN

    The last thread regarding the flash news box on the left side of the main page was closed. Here we go again. You have articles dating Sep 21, Sep 22, Sep 29, and one where the link doesn't work at all. It's now Oct 5th. Those news pics in that box are the main attraction when looking at the main page. Is it too much to ask to keep those stories update daily along with the rest of the news? It's to the point now where I only come here for the forums. I check the LE news at other websites b/c it is more dependable and up to date.
