    Dave and company, one feature that VB implemented just as I was on my way out to the West Coast, was the ability to sort by the original post date. I like this because with a "News" section, the information generally appears in chronological order with the newest stuff at the top and the older stuff below. Without that option, the relevance of the news items was a little sketchy because as soon as someone would post a new reply to a very old item, it would bump that item to the top, and suddenly there were news items that were six months old at the top of the "news" section.

    This is just my opinion, but I would suggest sorting the news section by original post date. It still allows users to post, but at a glance, all forum members will instantly know that the newest "news" will be at the top of the thread and the older stuff below. Just my .02
