I've been noticing lately that News isn't being added for a while since it was submitted...on several occasions I've submitted news, and it was added up to 3 days later.
Even now, I updated The Geekery, and it's been 24 hours about...anyway, news isn't news anymore if it isn't new.

There is something I've been thinking of. You could designate a group of people and upgrade them to "news feeders". Currently, only admins can post news and that's cool, but when admins are busy Qbasicnews doesn't offer news.

Maybe you could create a special rank that could post news in the news section. Trustable people that generate news, just to aid in your work.

Just a thought.

Yeah...good idea, Nath. Kinda like a moderator, except only with news-adding privelages...sounds cool.
And make em' people that are on a lot, because otherwise it won't make a difference...

I agree, I'm not saying the admins are actually slacking off or anything, but sometimes it can be a little annoying when I post an update, and a week later it still hasn't shown up, so I have to harass him on MSN to add my update... Smiley

Exactly - and like I said, news isn't news anymore. By that time one could be doing another update.

Hrmmm "News Feeders" huh? That's not a bad idea... We'll discuss the idea. I personally think it would be a great idea and would take some of the "load" off of us (as if it's hard at all... I think it's mainly a laziness thing... well it is with me Wink).

If it's possible to interface the phpBB news posting with the nuke (or whatever it is) news submission system so news posters can't "tinker" with the rest of the site, why not?

Personally, I hardly ever check the news. It's a different system, so a different login. And sometimes it's hard to decide whether stuff is junk or not...

If you mean for adding the news to the 'News' forum, that wouldn't be neccesery, you would just set 'post new thread' (something like it not sure) permissions on that forum to 'Private' and create a user group with permissions to 'post new thread' in that forum. Admin will always be able to do it no matter what.

Doesn't matter as we're more then likely going to install this new "Approve post" mod that will make it so any new topics posted by non-admins will need to be approved. I've been playing with it on a test install of phpBB and it looks damn good and will help out a lot here. Wink

Ok. I might look into that aswell, as we're (at Qbasic.TK) currently using a not-too-beatuful way of acomplishing file uploads, I guess it might be useful for us aswell. Thx Wink.

I know that - it's just that anyone should be able to post in that forum, the post just has to be approved Wink
