just a quick note: it's not only Northern preferring direct links, but
London has made a proposal to that effect and Notts supported it.
Bristol implicitly agreed by stating it should be up to local
collectives to decide.
So all collectives who are not using Mir, and thus affected by the way
the aggregated content is linked/displayed who have expressed an opinion
are in favour of direct links to their articles.
I do think this should be implemented right away.
As for the other changes, it probably makes sense to have some more
discussions about it, especially with the new energy that is going into
the consultation process.
> PROPOSAL 1: LINKING: article titles on the front page newswire should
> link to the site of origin rather than to content on indymedia.org.uk.
> We would like the Mir link removed as we don’t think that it displays
> our content in the best possible way.
Notts supporting that proposal:
> Notts IMC would like to endorse IMC London’s proposals for the
> syndicated startpage.
