We continued to work on enhancing the Suggested Lists feature. Initially the suggestions were driven from the list category. Now they will be based on matches from a core list of 50 targeted keywords we have developed based upon various factors. We will continue to monitor this function for potential improvement.

Fact or Opinion?

by Clive Riddle, MCOL President
You probably have noticed healthsprocket has divided lists into Fact Based and Opinion Based lists. What does this mean? Fact Based lists should have a source and citation, and can represent appropriate third party information, or original research by the person posting the list.  An opinion based list should represent the opinion of the person posting the list, and not a third party.

What's in a name?

by Clive Riddle, MCOL President
So why'd we name this thing healthsprocket? The answer is not deep. There is no great Freudian or Pavlovian connection we're hoping you'll make with the name. We just wanted a "fun" name that also contained the word health, and we didn't want to be boring, and just call it healthlist.
