    Currently, Topics are tied individual Forums, such that the 50 states (but not DC) show up as Topics for a thread posted in or moved to the GOP forum -- but the 50 states (and DC) show up as "US:(state name)" in threads posted in or moved to the News forum. Those state lists don't cross. Same goes for the duplicate Topics found in Chat and Blogger forums -- and those lists are all separate from one another. Keywords are available across all Forums.All three systems should be merged into a Tags system. Currently, the URL (which I still...

    Just throwing out an idea based on an observation. In all my years on FR, watching the duplicate threads show up, and the users insisting they searched for existing articles. I believe them. The problem lies in the default searching option in my view. Change it from keywords to title. The title search is vastly more useful and is what I use to detect duplicate articles, and I suspect the same to many of those that enjoy pointing them out. In my observation, many duplicate articles are a result of inaccurate or incomplete keyword lists that don't quite literally have...

  • Nevada Early Voting is Starting and Day One Results Are Out

    10/21/2012 5:22:02 AM PDT · by Perdogg · 18 replies
    Early voting is a new phenomenon that is has great implications on the final election outcome. Despite this, I don’t much enjoy blogging it. The numbers get updated sporadically, there is an inherent uncertainty in what the requests or submissions actually mean and the sample sizes are really small. This makes drawing conclusions not much better than just plain old guess work until a critical mass of votes have accumulated. And by that time someone else has already done a better job analyzing the data than I could so I just leave it to them. One of the only reasons...
  • A question about Sidebars and Keywords: How do you use FR?

    one man's opinion....
    First of all, before anyone gets upset, this thread is not a complaint, not a critique. FR works fine for me. I'm a happy camper. But I am curious as to how others navigate around the site, and what, if any tweaks might be worth considering; and maybe provide some food for thought for the folks in charge.

    Good morning and happy June to my gardening FRiends and fellow gardeners!You may have noticed that I titled last week's thread "Keywords", and then totally forgot to write the first word about the topic. That illustrates perfectly how frazzled my mind is these days. As I was getting ready to hit the post button, I kept thinking there was something I was forgetting, but finally convinced myself that it probably wasn't *that* important, and I posted the thread. I apologize.There has been more than once that great information has been posted by one of our members, but I can't...

    Have you ever wondered if the government — or more specifically, the Department of Homeland Security — is monitoring your Twitter or Facebook posts? If the answer's "yes," give yourself a pat on the back because you're right and not simply paranoid. There's even a list of keywords for which subcontractors hired by the DHS check social networks. (Snip) Technically this monitoring is not done by the DHS, but subcontractors who are specifically hired to "monitor social networks–use to generate real-time IOI reports," of course. Internal policies demand that those reports are stripped of most personally identifiable information (PII), though

    Seems like after the crash yesterday the "Popular Keywords" all changed in the top right of the screen and were replaced with some that are completely bogus such as "tothemanorborn"???? I use this handy feature to quickly get to groups of tagged articles. Some of the missing ones that have been there for years are "palin" and "sarahpalin", santorum is new, and some of the others but a few old good ones like "banglist" are still there. Weird...

    A reminder of how FR's formating procedure can make your search for numerous posted articles about Herman Cain easier. 1. At the top of the "Forum" page, enter "Cain" in the keyword search function. A list of articles with that keyword appears. 2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to the link "Add to My Page" 3. Click the link and "My Page Layout" appears. 4. Chose the position (weight) on the sidebar where articles about Cain are to appear. 5. Chose the number (size) of article titles that will appear in that block. 6. Click "Modify" to...

    O.K. I admit it. I'm a big fan of Sarah, especially after her appearance on Hannity last night. So when I'm away from the computer for awhile and want to see if there are new threads about her, I have always clicked "Keyword: Palin" in the "Popular Keywords" sidebar block.Well, I have decided to configure my sidebar to display the ten most recent threads about her. It took a bit of head scratching about how to do it, so when I figured it out, I decided to share the really easy but somewhat obscure (for a dunce like me) procedure....

    Over the past few years, a new technology has sprung up: Search Engine Optimization, or SEO. It is the creation of Internet Marketers, and Spammers, who seek ways to get our attention, to defeat spam blockers, and to zero in on our individual demographic and perhaps more important, psychographic profiles. At its worst, it is an invasion of privacy on an unprecedented scale. It invades e-mail by using spyware to build specialized vocabularies for every customer. It looks over browser inquiries, even private correspondence with commercial entities. Then, SEO techniques are able to help create messages, using key words, or...
  • Vanity: articles with certain Keywords are regularly filtered out for no reason

    03/22/2009 12:59:10 PM PDT · by mainestategop · 11 replies · 941+ views
    I have noticed that a lot of times, certain articles are censored out by internet filters. keywords such as fascism, liberalnazis, stormfront and nambla are censored even though they are articles about nambla or describing fascism. To me it sounds like a good way to block the public from viewing the similarities of Liberal Democrat's and Hitler's Nazis. I think it might be a good idea to remove certain keywords so that there is no confusion between websites advocating fascism and those like this one that refute and expose it. the mods might want to do that and anyone here...

    Jim Robinson has created and maintains a huge treasure trove of news and information here at FreeRepublic.com. He gladly shares it with us Freepers and the rest of the world (a.k.a. - lurkers). And thanks to Jim and staff, FreeRepublic has a fantastic search engine (far surpassing Google), IMHO, due to the plethora of relevant news and information from around the world posted by us Freepers. For lack of a better description, I would classify FreeRepublic as a huge historical news and information database thanks to all of the postings and comments of Freepers (and a few disrupters - ZOT!!)....
