What this place needs is someone who can sift through the news submissions and pick what is actually relevant news. It's become clear that the people now in charge of this decision are completely unqualified to make such a choice. We used to get only scene news here, now we get ads for Orb and highly-outdated news on projects that haven't been updated in months. Whats worse is the poor manner in which these articles are front paged. Some articles get merged, some get linked, some get rehashed days later as new articles despite no real news coming out of them, etc - There is no consistency here! (I myself had a comment eaten by a bad merge)
My suggestion is, pick 1-3 people who are responsible for news being 'front-paged'. These should be people that the scene as a whole are comfortable with, not just people with high post-counts that think everything PS3 related is "scene news".
Just my 2 cents.
