You could maybe let users apply to be news posters and post news in the Main News froum and have articles on the main page.

I was thinking, since BrainDrain is no longer coming to this forum, and he was the "Main News" poster, that we should merge the two forums into one and have just a "News" forum. Good idea?

Yes, I think that's a good idea, but maybe this could cause a problem if "all kinds of news" are posted and there is no differentiation between "More and less important" ones or something like that. Just my $0.02...

i think we need more news posters, as right now everything is going in the member posted news and nothing in the main news. I still think they should be seperated. Keep the main news to a certain style of formating and type of news

The problem is decication. Nobody wants to become a dedicated news poster. BrainDrain did an excellent job before he realised it was taking over his life, and thats the reason nobody wants to do it.
