back to topic (didn't think it would come out of my mouth, eh? :P )
What would be the name-thingy, IF there would be a name thingy, for the news-thingy?
Omnimaga-General-TI-News-Thingy sounds a bit crappy I guess

Idk, it would most likely be TI-News, like the two previous TI-News sites. The domain name would most likely be www.ti-news. something that is not squatted

In the '90s it was www.tinews.net, then in 2002 they forgot to renew the domain name I think or it got stolen, and they had to switch to www.tinews.com, then the site shut down in 2003 after the owner lost interest. Someone created a new site from scratch in 2004, but then lost interest in 2007 and decided to drop it, so it shutted down eventually. At this point it was www.ti-news.net

To be fair, though, I kinda wish Ticalc would do it themselves, though, kinda in the same way Calcg.org did, but with every active site and forums, because ticalc.org is the calc site that gets the highest amount of traffic, so it would have much faster success than on calcg, Omni, UTI or an external site. But the issue is that ticalc.org website is extremly old, so I am not sure if it would be easy to implement such thing.

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=624

Mhmm this is strange, this mod says it's no longer updated, yet almost everyday the author posts in its SMF topic and there was even a new update released today with bug fixes. Could it be a SMF site glitch causing this "use at own risk" message to happen?

Or he has started to update it again, and hasn't said anything to the people who are in charge?
Which reminds me, are we still going to do this?

Maybe there is a similar mod around that is continued?

www.ti-news.net: This site has now text about poker...  :(

I wish ticalc could be redone flawlessly someday... That could allow new possibilities.

I think the author of that bot mod stopped working on it and discontinued it, but the SMF website probably have no support for when someone decides to revive a project so the outdated warning remains regardless of if the mod is updated or not.
