Stock news stories/commentary

I don't think there's a way to do this for sharing for others, but if there is...can someone let us know?

Otherwise, would like to create a thread for contributing more news stories for next year's version. Folks mentioned the lack of fan interest/engagement stories and that seems weird in a social media age. I'd love to do some stories from the team's social media department or from other areas of the franchise that the GM would hear from periodically to let him know when they've taken a hit on fan interest because of this thing or that thing.

Like when a player gets suspended for drugs. Or when the GM trades a "very popular" player. Or when a guy gets signed at the deadline and peaks popularity. Seems like a valuable edition, the components are there, mostly just needs stories. I can model it in my own league easily, but since you can't share that with others...wondering the best way to put it out there.

Just please include a way to turn off these social media stories. It will really destroy the immersion to have Twitter and Facebook in my 1960's leagues.

I doubt it'll happen at all. I was just kicking around ideas. I was more interested in whether or not there's a way to add stock stories period so people could download them. Not so much specifically about social media, just anything.

I like that idea. If they could be bundled in a pack, you could tailor them to certain eras like Questdog's name mod.

Precisely what I was thinking. Right now the feature is limited by what the game comes loaded with and there's a real disincentive to creating them for your own league because the copy doesn't populate throughout new leagues, it's just like great for an online league that has a lot of writers but not as great for solo players.

So it'd be a feature for them more than anybody, but still lots of people who play solo and never touch an online league.

Come on, you know that given the chance, Babe Ruth would be a Tweeting machine.

This would be great. I have a suggestions thread for new news items up in the Suggestions area, but having it as a Mod could work well too.
