Is a website also 'media' ? I mean, it's so easy to include an msx-logo image in a generic forum Smile

NU.nl is a website on which editors decide what content (news submits) are placed on the website and which are not. A forum/reaction board is clearly something different. To specify the challenge a bit better "Get MSX in the media that usually not pay attention to MSX challenge". In essence: use common sense, we will too! Smile

Well, I'm a member of an ISP. So it would not be a big challenge to get 'MSX' on a Website duuh...

Of course it made a big difference that the author of the article (Jos Bouman) was an old MSX-er too, so he was quite interested when I told him we originally were an MSX hobby-group :D

But we value our roots! We mention it all the time! It's even in the history section of our website!

Didn't you read, or didn't you understand Snout? I'll explain again anyhow. The challenge is to get attention for MSX in any public media that normally doesn't pay attention to MSX. Media being newspapers, magazines, TV, radio and even websites that are regulated by editors. Examples of the last category: telegraaf.nl, cnn.com, msn.com, nu.nl, etc.
Hope this makes things a bit more clear. Good luck! Big smile

If you read it you'd know it wouldn't count as it's a website that has MSX related pages, that wouldn't fit under "any public media that normally doesn't pay attention to MSX" would it?

However, you say you're a member of an ISP? You mean like working at the ISP? If so, many ISP's have their own news portal. Get MSX on a portal like that and it'll be great! Big smile
