Railpage should buy facebook.  But really there's not much we all can do.

@bevans - can you post conventioal posts as Railpage ie a hand written post ( no attachements etc) ?

Given that Railpage often reposts other news outlets reports, have you checked if this site will be subject to the code that facebook and google are complaining about?

Umm, this was mentioned back on the 18th.

With the apparent negotiation, FB have agreed to reinstate access to news sites. As they cut access on Friday last week, they will probably reinstate it this Friday.

I see that RP FB page has been changed from
[url=@]@[/url] · Media/news company

to

[url=@]@[/url]  · Travel & transport
So imagine normal access will resume soon.

No the page is down tied up with the australian media scandal.  Should be back in the next few days according to media.

I can't be too hard as they are likely to be a customer in the current project I am doing (new business).

I can see it, but don't understand why it exists.

I can see it too, but it doesn't really advertise much other than the news articles posted on this site.

Looking at the moment, I agree with you. But up until the FB ban, recently RP was posting images from the cameras which were becoming popular. I enjoyed those posts.

My point was that shouldn't RP be a "one stop shop" rather than spread over multiple platforms? I accidentally stumbled on the RP FB page during the recent lengthy outage, before that I was completely unaware of its existence. It isn't linked from RP by the usual "Find us on Facebook" method commonly found on websites.

Thanks Graham, I agree with you on that. RP main page has no links to its social media, unlike other websites.
