- Launching FC.o campaigns
- Major media write-ups of FC.o or chapters
- NOT: local events of only local significance (write these in your local blog)
- NOT: your personal musings / ramblings (write these in your personal blog)

- NOT: pipe dreams, complaints, internal disputes, name-calling
- NOT: news stories without the FC.o context / "spin"
