    If you're not going to reply seriously I'll just close the thread.

    I don't understand your first post.

    As for the topic/question though, The purpose of each section is listed under its name

    i think having the section is a waste of time because no one ever posts in there. all news can be submited though the main page + talked about in chatter

    that section is mainly for news which isn't as important to be posted on the front page... mainly spotted/posted by members - theres more members then staff... so sometimes one or two posts get stuck on the front page fromn there.

    Some people don't like posting news via our submit form.
    Eventually news@ntfs.org will have its data parsed into the submissions... but not yet, my work nagging the author on this continues.

    Not everything submitted makes it to the frontpage. If it is posted here first and there is alot of interest it will be posted etc.

    The list goes on as I think of reasons.
