    Exciting changes coming to the Rumors and Reports forum!
    We're excited to announce some exciting changes coming for the Rumors and Reports forum here at Mac-Forums!

    Sometime this week, you'll notice a new friendly face named MF News Bot. News Bot will begin posting news and rumors articles that we feel are of interest to Mac-Forums members on all topics related to Apple.

    And periodically his friend, MF Blog Bot, will post links to new blog articles on the MF Blog.

    Look for these new additions this week!

    It will be a curated feed so no algorithm, human wisdom still rules.

    Thanks for the kudos. We do have some larger scale things planned in the future we think everyone will like, but we're excited to release some of these easier to implement changes earlier.

    Very funny .

    But seriously does this mean we can still post news in the news topic or will the newsbot take over this service?

    The News Bot will be posting most news. You are free to post news not covered by the bot, but we ask that you don't duplicate posts if its already covered.

    Would it be possible for us to get a female bot - instead of a male? We're decidedly short on females here...

    Understood. And I'll make sure I search first.
    You know I really like this idea. Really really like. For a lot of reasons.
    I just want to see what format the bot posts in so if I ever post a news topic I'll use the same format.

    Does the "News Bot" really have to post almost ALL news that is new? I kind of liked how it was before, were the people didn't just post everything as it came out, sort of filtering what should be posted here, and those that aren't really necessary. Know what I mean?

    Our "News Bot" is very diligent and thorough. As a good reporter, he covers everything. Like the NY Times - "All the news that's fit to print". Wouldn't want it any other way.
