Band of Brothers: Can We Get This Story on the Yahoo Reco List?

Posted by DavidNYC

People are always trying to get on the recommended list at DailyKos. I want to try something different, just to see how much influence a smallish blog can have. This AFP story on Yahoo mentions the Band of Brothers and discusses the Fighting Dem phenomenon pretty favorably. (Though why they pulled text from our website instead of contacting us for a direct quote, I'll never know.) In any event, Yahoo has its own recommended list, available here.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the aforementioned story, you'll see some red stars in an area which says, "Recommend This Story." Please, if you would, give this story 5 stars, and let's see what happens. Yahoo's reco list clearly is unweighted - that is, a 5.0 rating based on 10 votes is better than a 4.9 rating based on 100 votes. But maybe we can get this story on there.

As I say, this isn't really about getting this particular story on the Yahoo reco list (though that would be nice). I'm more interested in seeing if the readers of a blog like this can actually affect that standings on that list. So if you'd help out, I'd be grateful. And if you happen to spot the story on the reco list later, please let us know in comments.

Can't recommend the story on Yahoo (though I tried). The link on Yahoo does not allow for recommendations. Sorry.
