No End of Day ?

I don't look every day -  maybe on;y once a week - but just wondered

Weird, the weatherman didn't suggest any hint of an apocalypse. But then they didn't foresee this rain either.

Re: No End of Day ?

The weather man forecast a 65% chance of barbecue weather this summer.
That by inference means a 35% chance of other than that - and that is what we got - so why are people complaining
On the other hand - we could have had a barbecue outside this evening...........
But looking at the forecast maybe Sheffield was flooding - I hope not .

Sorry mal I wasn't intentionally making your thread off topic, I just saw it and made myself laugh  Cheesy
I never really read the EOD on any regular basis just on the of chance. I tend to just catch the full on blogs.

It's in chit chat - so can go off topic  Cheesy
but weather could be a valid reason if Sheffield has heavy rain and floods
maybe not - call centre is very quite

average call time today only 3 minutes

Don't know what you mean.  It was posted at 17:31 yesterday.

Re: No End of Day ?

Another day with seemingly no EOD. More concerning though is the little pane on the Community home page which used to show the latest EODs: today it's been quietly changed to show 'tech news' instead. Does this mean, I wonder, that Plusnet's EODs are no more?

Re: No End of Day ?

Maybe the staff at PN Towers are no longer allowed to blog EODs due to the highly secret and subversive nature of their work......

Re: No End of Day ?

I believe we'll be looking to switch to an End of Week instead shortly which is why the EOD pane on the Community front page has changed. Having said that it looks like an internal EOD was drafted yesterday so not sure why nothing got published. I'll ask around ans see if anybody knows more...

Re: No End of Day ?

Indeed - as Bob says, we'll be moving to EOW as of this week.  It's a change we've been considering for a few weeks now, the idea (hopefully) being that we can get more material in there.  It's not always easy to craft a daily EOD posting so putting more focus into a once weekly effort should improve this.
I'm sorry this wasn't communicated better, that's my fault... I was intending to post an EO-EOD type blog yesterday explaining what was going to happen but that didn't happen.  I shall make sure that's done today.

Re: No End of Day ?

I think that maybe that will prove a good idea.
When moved over to PN from Pipex/Tiscalli - I found the openess and friendliness here very good, and then included the EoD's.
But after a while I stopped reading everyday as it became a little repetitive, and the guys seemed to sometimes find it difficult to find something to say.
Making it weekly might breath new live into it. We will have to see.
On the other hand - like removing the webcams a month or so back - it might be felt that it is taking away some of the friendly old feel of PN.  Huh

Perhaps if you were replacing the End of Day section with the Tech News section, it would be worth having more up to date news in it Smiley

Re: No End of Day ?

Like the idea of EOW - it might be more 'newsy'. Only trouble is, I feel sorry for the compiler having to round everything up on a Friday afternoon just as folk are wanting to be off home for the weekend.

Re: No End of Day ?

Maybe - but the head of departments can ensure their input is sent to one of the Friday evening shift to do the editing and putting on line, or even the overnight shift and have it ready for the weekend ?.
