I agree to the idea because IMHO this will lead to better catagorization and the other threads of the forum will be a little bit more cleaner because of this.

Aslam-o-Aliakum,

YES we have news page... at the beginning... but my suggestion is, some ppl like me, who don't go anywhere else... they directly come to forum they don't get the latest news until they must remember that they need to see news on the front of the website...

So if a person come to forum, he gets not only the information/solution about his problems he also get latest news about Linux World...
if u find anything which shows my lack of knowledge,

please guide me... thx

How about a section titled "Latest News" is incorporated into this theme to show the latest news posted on the main site (pulled via RSS)?

I just think that a seperate forum for something that is already there would be a waste of space, but then again, that's just my opinion :)

Agreed with the current theme. The main page is already pulling the news via RSS, so I think it'd be trivial to add the same to the forum theme.

On a related note, I'd like us to create a fork of the SubSilver theme for phpBB so that we can maintain that independent of the upstream SubSilver.

of my 6 years with unix, one thing ive come to notice...all unix/linux users have a particular interest in astronomy, cosmology and PHILOSOPHY, how about a new forum whatever for that? i myself, would prefer it over a news tab :) anyways..thats my 2 cents....

M8, i am a great astronomy lover!!
But i guess it would be too much asking to create non linux related forum sections on this board.
I think a single hangout forum is enough for such purposes...may be something with the name Hang Out or desichat lol.
But i fear we may start getting members who may misuse that and flood with an objective of increasing their post counts.

At the moment we have a hangout forum general ...but that is quite messed up with hotch potch here and there.

Maybe we can just organize things more.
