You see that Submit News button on the right hand side of the page? I admit I have not been monitoring the submitted news very closely. I know bad Al! However, we have a solution in place to ensure all news gets a little face time with the public. From now on in, all news submitted by the users will show up on this page.
On a regular basis, several times a day, moderators will review the news and publish items to the front page. You have to be a registered user to use the feature. Abuse of the system will get you banned. There are no second chances here.
With that said, go ahead and test the system out :). Pretty much anything goes as long as it is relevant to HTPCs, computers, content, TV, HTPC software, digital life, gadgets etc :).
