Very neat!

Just wondering tho, what are the differences from a met just creating a thread in his/her region? Wouldn't there be more viewers there?

Met has full control of posts within their blog. Met can also put links to their entries into a thread.

Jmho, no reason why amateurs shouldn't be allowed to do the same. Some would elect to post there and it would probably thin down the forums some.

Especially amateurs that donate and or are subscribers. Otherwise you might as well to straight to the "amateurs must subscribe to read/post" to support the community. It would accomplish basically the same thing.

Agree with this.

The met-only litmus test is kind of random, since some mets are terrible posters and some non mets are important contributors to the weather community-- either as chasers or whatever. I get that not everyone should have a blog, but this way of parsing it doesn't sit quite right.

I am considering an exception to qualified non-mets - we have plenty of them. Just wanted to open with the draw for mets to contribute.
