I have decided to change the blog policies regarding expiring blog entries.

Previously, blog entries for free members were only visible for 60 days.  Gold members' entries were visible for 1 year.  Platinum members' entires were visible without expiration.

Starting immediately, all entries for all members, regardless of member level, will be visible for all time, without expiration.

Daily posting limits for free and Gold members still apply, but I haven't seen those limits to be much of a problem for anyone.

      Thank You Todd!

      Some of the Blogs have some excellant information, which was previously unavailable.

      Seek and ye shall find!

          As much as that would have improved things around here, I still would not have done that. Big Grin

            You've nailed it. There was simply too much valuable information slipping off the site to worry about holding fast to that original rule, so I changed the rule.

                  A Blog is a Web page that serves as a publicly-accessible personal journal for an individual.

                  It contains On-Topic Lottery Information and Off-Topic Non-Lottery information.

                      Todd what would be great is if there was some way we could see the blogs in the order they were posted. Like if i come to lottery post in the morning and someone post a blog. many times by late evening there blog is gone ( well not gone but no longer on the front page buried by the many posters) and unless i bookmark it.

                      And or write the person name down. i wouldn't be able to find it. In some cases and many times i don't have time to read all the blogs for the day until i have free time.

                      In other words suppose i wanted to read blogs from yesterday where would i look. do i have to sort through everyone's screen name to see when they posted a blog.

                        Good point.  It would be cool if the main blog page was set up like the active posts page for the forums where you can designate the most recent blogs in a certain time frame.

                              Todd:

                              I applaud the no limit availability.  I agree with other that there is just too much good information and to be honest some really funny stuff in the blogs.  In fact I was reading some old ones today and got some good laughs and also some good info.

                              Appreciate you!!
