Save Election Tracker's young online journos from being Crikeyed

Tim Longhurst has raised the alarm about media player Crikey raining on the parade of a talented election commentary site run by Aussie youth since 2004.

The site,, which is run by Vibewire, is now finding its online presence undermined by the creation in late September of Crikey's

Amber Sloan, General Manager of Crikey, has ruled out adding cross links between the sites (what Wikipedians would call a disambiguation page), claiming it will only exacerbate the problem.

The folks at Vibewire don't have the material resources to defend their trademark, but you can help get the site above Crikey's in Google searches, by linking from your own sites.

Oh hell, while you're at it, email Amber, and tell her you don't like Crikey undermining the next generation of online journalists.
