- You guys don't overwork yourselves and lose interest
- Mod quality doesn't reduce due to alternate focus.
- It isn't just a re-hash of notch.tumblr.com
- Has news about high quality/upcoming/interesting mods
- Has some news/gossip from Notch's Twitter (since, really, who actually visits twitter other than to post narcassistic crap?)
Essentially, as long as it's not going to become a drain on the forums, and has news that is more about the community releases and large MC releases it'll be useful.
I would most certainly be interested in reading up on news, but I would prefer it to be in a different section of the forums. I wouldn't be happy if I found a random page from the news paper in a good novel I was really into... If that makes any sense.
