Right this is in the Community forum because well I only want people who are at leats a little known in the forums and cause its only an idea at the moment.

As I stated some time ago I want to make this site a bit more community based so I'm not responsible for everything. Obviously the forum is a part of this. But I'm thinking about chnaging the news system so it works by pulling post from the forum and displaying on the front page. This means it will be easier to post and more people can do it.

It also hopefully mean more reguarly updated news and more of it.

Thus I'd like some volunteers for this (and if you offered to help before well apply again please). If your name is Tanker, Loonyworld, SwitchBlade or N9210 you need not apply - you're already on the list....! You can apply to do it for one news type (e.g. Nokia 9210) or all.

Please reply to this thread. Comments on using the forum as the basis of news also appreciated. (benefits - encourage discussion - comments easy, disadvantages - look?)...

If you want to see a sneak preview of how the system works.

Look here: http://www.allabouter6.com/examples/head2.php

To those who have been given access to the new 'News' Forums please feel free to start posting. I'll be in touch with some recommendations, but its all fairly obvious. Basically you post in the forum and that becomes a news story.

Well I like this site and I love to help, but I don't think I could deliver much "news", but if I can help in any way just call :) I'm not a stranger to html/php/jscript/asp ... :)

Happy to volunteer to provide news releases regarding the 9210 and other Nokia developments, general smartphone news, etc.

I get a fair amount of press releases coming to me, and can act as a filter to dispose of the crud before diverting the cream this way.

If that makes any sense at all :-)

Thanks for the offer. No necessairly worry about delievering news, but say if you find an interesting article / site etc. you could post it in the Musings / book mark forum.

Basically the way it works is a new topic in any of the News forums get sucked to make a news item on the front page. The reason - its easier to get more people posting and it means better commenting etc.

So for you - it doesn't have to be news as such - it could be a short review of a program you like (i.e. a Musing) or some comment or analysis or a rant.

I've now added you to the News Posters Usergroup which means you can post new topics to the New Forums.

I'm going to add a FAQ tomorow about how to do it and some recommendations - I'll e-mail it to all News Posters as well as post it here.

That would be great! I get e-mailed some press releases, but another source would be excellent. I've added to to News Posters usergroups (i.e. access to post new topic & therefore news), but don't feel you have to do anything. You could as an alternative pass the releases on by e-mail to rafeblandford at dial dot pipex dot com

and thanks for your help.
