    News Forum

    Hmmm, Looking into General Chit Chat I see a whole lot of news stories..... /me thinks there should be a News Forum at AO so we can keep track of current events..... Users can post to it, add stories, etc.

    Great idea. A currnet events forum would be the next best thing to a news section.
    Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

    An excellent idea!

    i also agree that this is a good idea. is it just industry-specific news, or including general non-IT stuff as well?

    it is mostdefinatly nice but why not just assign all news to the general board?

    I think it's important that we have a news-report feature on AO where members can post news and others can report on it. I thought JP implemented something like this when he re-built AO last year but if so I haven't seen it in active use.

    Too many news stories are being copied and pasted to the general chat forum, if I wanted to find news, I'd look to a specific news site like BBC News or AO if we get a news forum.
