By the way, you can sign your name on Talk pages using four tildes (~~~~), which produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, you can ask them at the water cooler or to anyone on the Welcommittee, or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Brian McNeil / talk 07:56, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Why do you put every single little thing about the Suns on the front page, it's just spam.
watch a webcastEdit
I do believe eventually it will become so easy and convenient that sports teams will webcast their events. Those will be original reporting opportunities for photographic screenshots and for the reporting of highlights of the game. -Edbrown05 07:12, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
- I'm also of the belief that if an individual or an orgaization decides to webcast themselves, they are in the public domain. You cannot broadcast something and yet retain digital copyrights to what was broadcasted, or webcasted, or whatever the nomenclature is. When it has gone public, well... it has been released for public scrutiny. -Edbrown05 07:22, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
