Rickie’s Corner


Welcome to Rickie’s corner. This is where I like to post the updates about this website and other things. I update this periodically so I encourage everybody to visit this page often.

It has been a few since I last did an update.  So I wanted to bring everyone up to speed on things.  

  • RESPECT:  Please be respectful when you make comments on our social media.  The families and friends, and even those involved in the incidents do read the comments.   So please be respectful when making your comments! 

 

  • FOIA: We are filing several Freedom Of Information Act requests. 
     Be sure to follow the progress on them at ~ CLICK HERE

 

  • Speaking of FOIA, we are now making our requests public. So that way everyone knows what we filed on, and the results. We encourage transparency!  You can see just how transparent or how non-transparent the departments are. 

 

  • SCANNERS: Going to focus more on the scanner aspect of things. Scanner reviews, what you can and can’t do with the scanner, etc… Going back to some of our roots, bringing back the scanner hobby! 

 

  • EVENTS: Focus on having  events advertise on our website. And RS working the events. (More positive news) But keep in mind, we can only post about stuff, that we KNOW ABOUT!  Hint Hint Hint…  Send us your events! 

 

  • DATES: We brought back the date on the articles. Many requested that we do so. 

 

  • EDITORIALS: Plan on writing several editorials in the future.    Focusing on that aspect of the site as well.  After doing some research on similar sites,  I thought it would be something good to do.   If you have an editorial you want posted, let me know.    

 

  • DONATIONS NEEDED: At some point, we are going to ask for donations to offset the cost on some of the expenses. We currently have the donation page up and running, but we are going to promote it some. I was against this for a long time (promoting it)  but some of the expenses are becoming to much.

    If you enjoy our website, please help support us and donate some.
    Every little bit helps! 

 

  • CONTESTS/PROMOS: We are in the works of creating an either weekly or monthly contest/promotion. Details on that later on! 
    If you are a business and want to do some promos, get ahold of us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com 

 

  • VOLUNTEER: We may need to bring on some new volunteers onto our team.  If you are wanting to help the community, or are just a scanner hobbyist, or someone who just wants to have fun.  If you are interested ~ CLICK HERE 

 

  • MAPS: I know this is a popular feature that many enjoy. However this is a resource hog on our server. I am still currently trying to find a solution to make this a permeant feature on our website. But heads up, a lot of articles will not have maps right now until I find a solution. Some will have maps, but not all. 

 

I want to take a second and say thank you to everyone who has sent in their tips and content, keep up the amazing work!


 

 

Thanks
