    News/Current Events section

    I think it would be nice to have a News/Current Events section, if not as its own section as a sub-section of the Outerworld. I read a lot of news stories and have nowhere to share them other than here so rather than flooding the Outerworld with them I figured a news section might be beneficial. I'm not sure if this has been tried out in the past or not, but figured I might mention it and see what you guys as-well as @MentaL thought.

    Only if topics in that section would be [tagged]. Like [Politics], [Technology], [Games], [Sports], etc.

    Yes, I like that idea it would definitely help keep it a lot more organized.

    Lots of things happening these days. Would definitely make sense and boost activity in Evo (I guess that's where one would put it) and ease Outerworld.

    I'm just trying to remember if we already tried this out before or not is all.

    Seems like I vaguely remember a News section that didn't turn out but even if so why not give it another shot?

    It would be nice to have such section on the forum.

    News section was done before, but it was only done before with "Gaming" news.

    Ah that's what it was.

    I thought I remembered something to do with news just wasn't sure exactly.

    Think it will end up getting cluttered. Or just dead.

    Worth a try though.

    Post your news items in outerworld. Just post in a way that makes it a topic of discussion instead of here is some information : splat.

    I think a new subsection would be a really horrible idea, because outerworld really isn't that busy to begin with.

    Well I think also posting news stories would bring more traffic to Ragezone because of people searching them on Google, Ragezone would potentially pop up in the results and could be more incentive for new members to register and post, if there was a special subsection dedicated to a specific format of posting them rather than just the general Outerworld.

    I don't know I'm just trying to think of what's best for Ragezone and I personally don't see why it would hurt to at least try.

    What you're suggesting is abit silly, RaGEZONE won't get enough traffic to even be that high up on the search engines, when people search for news they'll be searching for the most trusted sources, BBC etc, all big names. You're suggesting that RaGEZONE tries to compete with all these?

    The activity in the outerworld at the moment is dire, creating a new subsection will only flush threads further back.
