    The standard of coverage is high here. We need a layout to stop newbs coming and posting news like this:

    Nice idea
    I think this should be stickied so people don't make terrible posts

    Not a bad, idea, but there is so few people that don't post things like they should, that this isn't really necessary...

    Good idea, but I think most news posts are neat and tidy anyway.

    People need to use quotes when quoting news too. It's confusing to read because sometimes it's mixed up with their own words too.

    Do people ever post news by going into the section first? I just do it via the front page bit in Latest Discussions where stickied threads won't show.

    Would be nice to have something like this show up before it lets you post "news". Would annoy me but would be for the greater good perhaps.

    I think the majority of news posters submit news properly and accurately, the main problem is posting news that has already been posted, no one checks to see if it's been posted before and just post it because it looks good, a recent example of this is KH Re:Coded, it's been posted about at least three times since I posted the original article. The content of the news is generally alright, only rules we really need is to make sure people
