Most other companies setup like this have an announced forum category at the top of the forum list. Meant for official news and announcements like what you put on the blog and such. Users/members are not allowed to start threads, and in some cases they are allowed to post responses or a separate disussion thread is started to keep the announcement forum clean. I have no problem transfering the announcements from the blog to the new forums as needed if you guys agree to the idea.. Some people only read the foums, and subscribing to either the blog or this new forum category is another way for people to stay up to date. They subscribe to the announcement section and they get an email alert on each new post.. Bringing them to the forums.. And hopefully drawing them in to participate in conversations... Anyways.. Thoughts?
