Annoyingly, all links to news articles from the olden days (pre this week) no longer work. I am aware of this as a person looking at CT articles linked from the ACT Light Rail website http://www.actlightrail.info/ emailed me about it.

Very annoying.

Every link to everything broken. So every GCC article on the Facebook page or the GCC website now has dead links. Every RA article busted. Un-freaking-believable.

And site owners get pissed when people copy their content over in entirety instead of just linking to the content owner’s site? This is why. Seems you can’t trust any site other than your own to maintain continuity.

So CT are you going to fix this almighty screw-up, or do you expect every other linking site to rebuild their links to wherever the old article now resides (if anywhere)?? All that audience reach/advertising exposure gone.

I am thinking the local ABC people will now have to ‘pull their finger out’ – the ACT news on its website is hopeless and only seems to get updated once or twice a week, and even then, seems mainly to be about about ‘sport’ (which IMO is not actually news).
The CT website used to be comprehensively local. Now it’s not, and it’s visually untidy and ‘busy’ to boot. I wonder what prompted the change.

The format is unreadable, and despite claiming the site to be more interactive, it seems as though there is no way of commenting on, or interacting with the content. Epic fail

VAST improvement over the old CBR Times site.

Er, no point launching an improved site, CBR Times, if the signup facility doesn’t work…

Cripes my Canberra Times RSS feed has gone totally over the top. Hundreds of posts…
Try pick the ACT-relevant stories out of that mess.

So is there a new RRS feed for the ACT News section? Nope.
Just Top, National and World.

Brilliant move CT. Delete.

…Sadly, the Fairfax papers show no sign of abandoning their hard left editorial policy and better reflecting the current public opinion so this is probably the last gasp from a terminally ill media empire.

[grin] Fairfax’s hard left editorial policy? I do believe you may be lost, sir – you should be making your valuable contributions over here, not RA.

I guess he thought he would go for a short troll.
