HBO — to LukeB re: Better Blog Software

LukeB: "I just wish this website ran better software. I've suggested Scoop a couple of times but I don't know how interested DFO is in changing blogging software."

DFO: I'm totally at the mercy of the techs, and they're at the mercy of time constraints and in-house software constraints. If I was king and had great techs, like Ken Paulman, Ryan Pitts and Gina Boysun, at my beck and call, you'd have polls, forums, and other bells & whistles here.

Update: I just talked with Blogmeister KenP re: software updates. Seems we're working off a 1998 version. And plan a major overhaul next year that will include comment registration. A "preview" button could be doable this year, Sara. But we're limited in what we do. He wants me to keep a list of suggestions for the new, improved software for the site.
