    Default A Random Blog Question

    I have a question about the random blog entry that we see when we log into the Blog section. I find it very annoying to be faced with an ancient blog entry every time I bring up that page. Would it be possible to display a random blog entry made the current day? I have no problem with the random blogs popping up, I just wish they could be a current entry.

    That's a good idea! I read the featured blog; well because it's there and often times want to make a comment, then I realize that the info is quite outdated.

    That's a great idea, random post of the day.
    Past is past. It's wierd seeing one made from months ago. Even days ago.

    I'd love this. I actually sent someone a PM about their blog entry only to find out that it'd been posted months ago

    Something posted within the last 24 hours would be ideal.

    I agree, just imagine when we have years worth of blog entries, the random entry might be years old, not nice...

    keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.

    I agree. Although I would maybe limit it to blog entries made in that week or the last 2,3 days - sometimes, a blog entry pops up that I somehow missed reading and where I'm glad that it popped up.

    On a slightly related note, would it be possible to limit the characters shown for the featured blog entry to maybe the first couple of paragraphs with a "read more" link? It's slightly annoying when the featured blog entry is so extremely long that I have to scroll way down to reach the actual blog area.

    I've been wondering the same thing about possibly having a character limit and a "read more" link. In my case, I've gotten in the habit of checking the date, but I've wished that a truncated version would be shown so that I could choose to click only on current entries.
