There seems to be a significant change to the way comments are posted in MSNBC that may have a large impact on Newsvive and the nation structure. This could impact every nation and Newsvine as a whole.
I haven't seen any seeds from MSNBC showing up on Newsvine lately. So I went to the MSNBC side and all the comments are in a "DISCUSSIONS" area, rather in nations as before. Comments made by our members now won't seed the MSNBC article to the Newsvine side, or to my nation.
There is a heading at the top of the MSNBC homepage that says "My news feed'. Newsvine seeds appear there. It appears that Newsvine articles are being shared with MSNBC but there is no reciprocity.
We used to get about ten applicants for membership a week and those have dried up also. Is Newsvine being abandoned by MSNBC? Does anyone know what's going on and how this could impact Newsvine's future without new blood?
