Default news posting suggestion

I quite enjoyed the previous style of headlines only.. but I understand why the move has been to add samples of the news.. it does keep hits on site and that is good...

here is my suggestion... considering you are using vbulletin.. I am sure a setup can be employed much like @ my resident site... www.ntfs.org or www.neowin.net...

having a small updating box @ the top with the various topic listings (ie hardware/cases/games/whatever else) makes it less archaic and easier for forum users to follow...

then the front page can be dedicated to whatever MAIN body of news you want to submit and since there is less clutter you are likely going to be able to keep hits on the website... especially if you have an extended news segment... this basically means you show a sample of the news article... the extended news part is not shown till the link is clicked... upon click of the link the entire article will display...

naturally the news source will be cited as it is done now to maintain integrity but IMO it will give better continuity and less clutter...

currently it looks a little too archaic...

just my $0.02...
