New Features: FlickR, Suggestions, and Events

Whoops… i’ve been a bit slack in reporting the latest developments around here, so here’s a quick catch-up:

Public FlickR Group

See those photos in the sidebar on the right hand side of this page (if not then just click on “Photos” to expand it)? Those are randomly chosen from the Metroblogging Birmingham FlickR group, which has just opened its doors for all to join! So if you have a FlickR account and want to share some of your photos from in and around Birmingham just join the group, add your photos to the pool, and sit back and relax! All visitors who click the links will be able to see that the photo is yours, so it’s not like we’re stealing it from you or anything ;-)

Suggest A Story

Know of a story that you’d like to share about Brum, but you don’t want to commit to joining as a “full-time” author? Check out the new “Suggest A Story” link at the top of the right-hand menu. Fill in the relevant details, and one of us will pick it up and post about it ASAP.

Share Events

Finally, if you’ve got an event in the Birmingham / West Midlands area that you’d like publicised, feel free to add it to our group. The details of the event will then appear in the “events” tab which is (yes, you guessed it) also in menu on the right!
