New Conservative News Site Joins the WWW!

New Conservative News Site Joins the WWW!

GoodNewsAmerica.us is the latest conservative media entry circulating Breaking News from around the nation and the world. I’ve been quite impressed with the scope of the features. For anyone hard pressed for time it offers an extremely wide variety of information and links directly to the originating Media sites all on one site. The editor has done a tremendous job of setting up and maintaining this site.

Its forum offers the ability to comment on these articles similar to Free Republic.com. I envision these sites working together synergistically. May I suggest that we support this new Media entry? I think that you will find it handy and useful in finding, circulating and updating articles of current interest on the Free Republic. It deserves our support and membership.

This site recently made its debut but the number of member signups remains low. The LIBS are beginning to take over the forums on this the site with their hateful rhetoric. Freepers to the rescue!

It looks OK, but it ain't FR nor do I see it offers anything I can't get here.

I have always thought it tacky to advertise competing forum on FR, which is why I don't advertise my (since 2001) forum on FR.

Doesn't work for me. I get the same page no matter what I click on.

Thanks for the heads up.

It's not about competition... it's about getting the word out there... :)

Well if that is true, then I should feel free to do the same. But some how I don't. This site is supported by members if the membership is drained away to other sites, then what happens to FR?

I think there are other ways of advertising new sites. I understand that the author meant no harm or disrespect to FR, but it is kinda tacky.

I checked it out, but there's some clown named HostileTakover that's starting threads and spamming other threads with Bush bashing posts. Hostile takover, indeed.

Why are you advertising a competing site to FR here? Do you have a personal interest in this site?

Will this turn into a 527 and run ads for Bush?

It appears that their servers are not yet up to the task.

No, dvan does not have a personal interest in the site. He's just trying to help me out. I gave him permission to post this thread to FR after he asked me. I will take full responsibility for breaking any FR rules that may have been violated here, and if necessary pull this thread. I would never do anything to jeopardize the respect of FR members.

No, it is not FR, nothing can ever beat it. The site is another filter for the news.

Let's not be so defensive. Competition makes this country great. I have a site, too, with a whopping 200 visitors since May. I use it as a tag line for all my e-mails. Mine's a hobby, but as I learn how to do more stuff, I might try to break out and make some real noise. But nothing will replace FR.

I have no problem with someone starting a conservative web site the more the merrier. I started one in 2001, with an FR like forum, trivia, babes, dating and all kinds of neat stuff. I just think it is tacky to start a thread advertising one conservative forum in someone elses conservative forum. Now if that happened at my place I would not pull the thread, just like FR is not going to pull this thread, but it is bad mannors.

I took a look at the site, looks OK to me, I even signed up. A little busy but that's OK. Maybe I'll go over there and advertise my site. Very few people know about my site and my forum software is much better.

Maybe I could sell my software to all the sites I go to that have piss poor forums. I am pretty sure I could wip my into good shape for a few bucks. But FR has the best software going, I am still a few years behind but .....

Nice looking website in IE. A note to you though, I'm using Firefox 0.9.3 and the layout is completely out of whack. I'm no stylesheet expert so I can't offer any advice, but it's something you want to look at. Your middle main body is on the left, and every other column is off to the right, off screen. FYI.

This one is not new. Been at it since 1996. Any input will be appreciated. We get about 18,000 visitors and 210,000 hits per month. No pop ups, no spyware.
