Facebook/Twitter sticky
« on: January 11, 2013, 09:43:46 AM »
With tweets, etc coming from the band regarding being in the studio and the new live album, is there any way we could get a sticky where all statements from any member of the band could be compiled?
Maybe interview links too?
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

So is it possible to have the Facebook feed appear on DTF?

That would be a sweet feature.  I know when I see news on DT's FB I often come right here after and either share if it hasn't been yet and/or read/comment on it from the appropriate thread.

All the drama wrapped up into one forum. However, ever since we lost chaossystem our drama percentage has dropped significantly. It's time to create some.

Hey TAC, you smell like a nuns dried up, withered crotch.

Okay, your turn.

Something tells me that is one panty-soaked nun. She undoubtedly gets on her knees for Jesus. I suppose if nuns looked like that, priests would stop fondling little boys.

All true!!!

Yet I'm the one asking for a Facebook/Twitter feed on DTF, and apparently no one cares because they already have access! :lol

I'll back you Tim - the only Facebook/Twatter related account I have is a fake FB account for a couple of things that work best with a Facebook login.   I'm constantly getting in trouble for not keeping my phone charged/on me.  Not interested  ;D

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Thanks Hef, but there's a giant box hovering over my view. Plus, not sure how up to date the posts are. I didn't see the Missouri post that was posted here on DTF today.

Since the Twitter and Facebook feeds are available on, well, Twitter and Facebook, I highly doubt they will ever be just "available" here.  I mean, I'm not a programmer or anything, but I am not sure that such a feature would be worth it.

Especially since most DT fans already have Facebook and Twitter, and already follow the band on those services.

But what do I know?

The programming would be the easy part I think, just a simple API call to facebook to drag the feed onto the website.  I think it would be more difficult to get it to format and look a certain way that is consistent with the website as it is.  But I don't do web programming, or any programming at all anymore, so I could be off.  Most people have at least facebook so it may not be worth the effort as hef says.

Lots of sites have a "latest tweets" box off to the side. That's very doable. I just don't know if it would be worthwhile to clutter up the current site design to fit it in somewhere.

Yeah, that's the kind of thing that I was thinking. Maybe run it across the top where Bosk tries to put funny things. No clutter.
