Well this popped up from...of all places...the 'hello guest' thread.
I thought this had potential, and after a quick chat with SB, heres what we've got.
Basically I site that a member (or more?) can update of a period of time (weekly, fortnightly, etc) updating current events in the Off topic forum, seeing it is such a large forum to keep up with.
Members (and the Admin) could send in articles to be published covering news that they would like to go out to the large majority of members here.
This is just a basic plot, but with the creative and ingenious minds of our forum goers, this will expand into a popular detour on your way to the Off-Topic forum.

So, now I need; Thoughts, Feedback, just jump in with whatever you've got!

What, you mean important stuff that happens?
How about even after the appeal which lasted like 2 weeks, Micheal Barrett will still be serving 10 games suspension? I mean, all he did was punch Pierzynski in the jaw, but look how Podsednik just starts attacking him after that, and Cubbie John Mabry was taken to the hospital for bruised ribs from Sox Brian Anderson, who only got suspended for 5 games.
The video is at the top, click "• Cubs-White Sox fracas: 350K"

I hear Navee, Doom and Havok are going through some bizarre love-triangle drama.

In other news, squattingb recently abolished all manner of cutting slack for other members. The reaction of some to his capitalized word "ARTICLE" was one of shock and dismay.

At 9:35 PM EST, Trance got post-edited-burned. In other news, yours truly has started a coup and will be soon overthrowing the current Nerro-gov't. Proclaiming that the Codexism has gone on for too long!

I'm writing this from an underground shelter in what was once the Machinima forum. The Resistance movement has been slow going, but I believe we finally have the numbers we need to disrupt Squattingb's evil regime. This may fail, but it's the only chance we have. He's begun extermination of all low-post members, starting with the zero-post wonders. It's genocide, and he shows no signs of stopping.

I hear the banhammers rolling overhead. I fear for my life. But we must persevere for the sake of all of us.

SB troops make advance. This weeks special edition article, General SB's daily log.

Day 5 - All is well

It was a routine day, we managed to bowl over the weak defenses of the Forsaken section, they were hardly a match for our massive Banhammers. But of course we lead the attack as usual with lock-missiles that rendered their topics defenseless to our bannage. This strategy is working well.
Pockets of resistence have popped up here and there but nothing serious, although I know our ex-sports columnist writer, Trance, is the head of the resistance movement. All that matters now is to find his threadhole and delete it. That'll flush him out.

End log.

In other news a woman was robbed today trying to rob a store, in a rather ironic twist of irony, the second robber was run over by a banhammer. He was banned quickly with no signs of warning.
