Yeah we do use it a bit - we posted some live updates from reno this week but mostly we use it to remind folks of upcoming, practices or other things (signup dates etc.) - we probably don't use all of it's capabilities but it does what we want it too...

http://www.patriotpv.com/ - look on the right hand side

and Rachel - aren't you supposed to be in class instead of posting to PVP ??? O:-)

umm well i was actually in study. and PVP is one of the few websites that isnt blocked, along with patriot, and sparknotes (that one's supposed to be blocked), and i had nothing to do, so why not come on here? haha if you ever stalk me on the high school forum, you'll notice that i come on quite a bit during study.

EDIT: doug what are these big things that happened in reno that im supposed to ask a coach about?

I made a Twitter account for PV Power: http://twitter.com/polevaultpower

I will try to use it to keep people updated. Let me know if you think there is anything cool I should do with it!

Becca, how about putting links on your main page, or maybe a locked thread (always on top) to advertise your twitter site ... and a suggestion to subscribe to the feed (and how to do that)? Also remind everyone to bookmark it? :yes:

Just make it easy to find. You could probably even put it in your personal tagline of your posts if you wanted to really hype it! :)

Maybe twitter could be used for your play-by-plays of major PV events? e.g. NCAA, USATF meets?

I don't know if that's a good application or not, but since you can subcribe to a twitter feed thru SMS messages on your phone, subscribers could stay updated on the play-by-play even if they're not at their computer. :idea:

If I am in a situation where I can only update via cell phone, Twitter is the way to go. If I have internet, there is a cool application that I have seen FloTrack use, so I will probably try that.

Well, if Twitter content can be INPUT by cell phone, then great!

But I was referring to OUTPUTTING the content to subscribers by phone. For example, while I watch the USATF PV events, I could see what you have to say after every jump.

Hmm ... maybe I should just sit near you! :D
