posting directly would be way much better. and if people find the news interesting they could starred it, liked, or give points. that way you know the news is newsworthy keep up the good work.
Agree to removing the Member News area because as you said, I dont think I have used that section every much at all.
I vote for removing member news, most of that goes up on the main page anyway, and when im scanning the forums i honestly never really look there. So be gone with it if ya want.
I vote to remove. Thanks for the work!
I think posting directly to the forums makes the most sense. Maybe you could make it so new posts can be flagged as news by the topic starter? That would cover the only real negative to not having a separate section for it.
OK, I have +Rep'd all replies since my last post and it sounds like a plan... Thanks for all the feedback everyone!!
