As you can probably see on top of your userpages, blogging is now enabled at The Vault. For more info about wiki blogs, see Help:Blog article. Ausir 20:36, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Seems like a stupid idea. This isn't Myspace! Fat Man Spoon 20:37, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Also, please don't add your blog posts to any of the suggested categories! This is bound to end up with lots of blog posts in the article categories now. :( Ausir 20:39, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I was just thinking that. I'm sick of removing 'misplaced' categories from pages. "Another failure from Wikia command!" Fat Man Spoon 20:42, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah, blog posts are listed in their own section at the bottom of the category page, even under images. I guess it's that's not *that* bad. Still, I'd prefer blog and article categories to be clearly separate. Ausir 20:48, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I managed to find a way to hide the category cloud from Special:CreateBlogPage. Ausir 21:11, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

NewsEdit

Actually, looks like the blogs can be pretty useful. There's a blog listing functionality, which allowed me to create this page: The Vault:News, which aggregates all blog posts added to Category:News. It's possible to embed it on the main page as well, and with this The Vault could become a good news source as well. Anyone can add post news by adding their blog posts to the News category, but silly news posts will of course be deleted.

I proposed proposing making a separate news functionality based on this code in the Central Wikia forum, though, with a separate News: namespace. But for now, the blogs can be pretty neat for that as well. Ausir 23:21, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
