    "The closure will be for about one week... Cyclists will be directed to Virginia Lane and Nottingham Drive to detour around the closed section of trail. This on-road detour uses the W&OD Trail access at the end of Nottingham Drive."

    You post a lot of interesting links, but only the links. They'd be more useful if you could offer a quick preview or a summary of the most useful information.

    Unless one knows where Nottingham Drive is, he/she will likely have to click on the link anyway. Besides, I'm not a movie/food critic, so perhaps it's better just to let the link do the talking.

    In this same topic, I never click on just links. Please kindly provide a synopsis of what the article is about instead of just posting a link. There are some great examples of this elsewhere on the forum. (Besides, I thought that was proper forum etiquette, as those that just post links are typically spammers.)

    Be careful what you ask for- I donít always appreciate the turn some of these threads take when someone else adds their interpretation to a linked article.

    Isn't the thread title the summary?

    Some people with older phones may have trouble with some sites, so they can't click on links, so a summary is helpful.

    My older phone as of 2 years ago, had trouble with some httpS sites(not all). Security protocol changed at the time, and one such site I couldn't access was https://www.rei.com I have newer phone now, so that is not an issue for me, but posting links only reduces the audience.

    I *did* edit the title to make sure the key info is included since the full title was truncated.
