    Those press releases and other information are also good jumping off points for threads where they go from "speculation" mode to discussing the reality.

    More than happy to help with articles! I posted a long (5k word) Tokyo trip report on the forums a while back if you're looking for a writing sample

    I disagree. I think we need the news/press releases. We could talk rumors all day but until I see the news item here, it's not official.

    Even just for the small amount of ad revenue. This is the only site I turn my ad blocker off for to try and help out as little as it is.

    Just a suggestion, but it would be cool if there was an message that appeared for those using ad blockers asking for the blockers to be shut off. I feel like most people want to support the site, but forget that they have AdBlock turned on

    Remember guys, you can always make a small donation to the site. For those who can afford it, it helps BriMan keep everything running.:)

    Thought: If you need revenue you need to do video updates.

    Page view and ad clicks are so incremental it's a lost cause unless your new posts are being sent directly to Google as part of their news/press search result indexing.

    Videos have much better returns for the amount of effort because of pre-roll adverts.

    I can confirm this, I'm the director of ad tech for my agency.

    I can speak for Brian saying more video content is coming.
