I know this topic has died... and I read over most of it.. but my question to the OP is this. Isn't minecraft news what the whole point of the new launcher was? If anyone is doing a minecraft news thing they should be getting paid by Notch to update his launcher properly when there are problems, server downtime, bugfixes, etc. it would take a lot of the workload off of the PAYING not payed community to do it for him as well as the mods that preside over these forums. hell even if he did as little as live feed the devs twitter feeds into it...that would help immensely. It would be kinda pointless imho to implement another news forum that nobody will take the time to read after the "OMG a new shiny forum" phase(like 3 days) wears off. but that's just my two cents.
hmmm... i gues that it will be useful if don't be like the launcher, this could show new mods and etc =)
but is 91% against 9% =P, i think that the forum will have it so xD
I dont think it will, you see the date the topic was started?
Mods arent officially supported yet, and even if they were it belongs in the mod forum, not the main site.
I doubt seriously this is going to happen, it was probably just a spur of the moment idea that was thought of before being thought out, we dont even have enough mods yet to keep the forum looking clean, why would they spread themselves even thinner?
