if it is a direct link to 'newsnow' that serves to advertise this website/forum, then its fine as it is, but if it serves no purpose other than to back up what other websites have presented first then do with it as you will.
(sorry to sound a little harsh, it wasnt my intention)
Its basically a central point of the site, all posts in there go on newsnow and the homepage.
However, am working on making it possible to allow members to comment on news updates, at the moment I cant allow it as newsnow would direct to the last user comment, rather than the initial update.
Once users can comment, I personally think it would be best to put it in the everton forum.
What about selecting a choice few members who are online when these news developments happen, and allow them to post in the news section. Providing they pass all of our stringent pre-requisites for journalistic writing etc etc :p
