Has the site stopped showing research news from Barts - prof Giovanni et al? I used to find that interesting.

I'm so sorry, JayJill, I'm afraid we did away with it a few months ago as nobody was using it - the number of views per entry were 0 to 1 on average for the majority of entries, which meant there was too little or no interest in it and this made it look bad... Had there been more than 0 to 1 views for most items, we'd have kept it.  :sorry:


I first added it many years ago as I too found it interesting and liked it:flowerface:. In more recent times, unfortunately it seemed that many of the “1 view” entries were those only I (or you) had viewed...


Also, when I first started the MS News section years ago, there were more sources to get feeds from. A number of those sites stopped doing RSS feeds (including the MS Trust), and only 2 were left, although they were both interesting ones, with Barts Blog probably being the best and most informative.


I’d consider putting it back if there was enough demand for it.

Thanks Marina, thought there would be a good reason.  I found it a good way of keeping abreast of current issues. Oh well just stay ignorant then! 😌
