Another idea just came to my head. I remember how, when I used to post to my Wordpress blog (The Sheil Blog, the blog software had a feature where it would automatically ping any links that you refer to in your post. So if I were to link to, say, Mike Davidson's newest post, it would automatically ping the post and my blog's post would show up as a Trackback on Mike's weblog.
Has anyone considered implementing this into Newsvine? I was considering just abandoning my Wordpress blog entirely and posting solely on Newsvine (since a lot more people read my content here), but Trackbacks are a really cool feature that I'm going to miss. I can't really think of any downsides of creating such a system other than the difficulty in coding it. What do you guys think - are implementing Trackbacks a good idea?
