Apparently this constant (probably automated) stream of news and events is supposed to spark debate. And I check out some of them, if the title is catchy enough. But I'm wondering if its such a good idea to make it show up in the "What's new" list. To be fair, they are equally counted as an update to the forum as any other new thread or new reply, but because they are added so fast and frequently, i might hit the what's new button to find 4 pages of activity, 3 and a half from just rss feeds

It's not a huge problem, and i think its more a matter of taste, so maybe if a few other people weigh in we could find a way to give attention to the articles and get debates going on that, but still keep the what's new list to topics and posts that users are making
