    Does anyone else have to agree that the "News" page needs better articles? The ones that are posted on there are just plain bad. It's the front page of the site, seriously.

    Some decent, quality, new - news should be up, not old and badly written stuff!

    I hope those articles are just for testing.

    i don't think anything is wrong with the news section, all it is there for is users to find out about the newest entries into the forums and information about the iPod Touch. i think it is a great addition to the forums, badly written or not.

    BTW, sorry if i sounded like a dick, just saying what i think

    That every other site doesn't have. It seems to much like a site that has 10 post's type of news

    You are an idiot that flames everything I post. I don't realize how you think that a site as big as this would have a such articles that I see on freewebs.com/IPODTOUCHFACTSHERE with little or no traffic.

    The quality of the articles submitted is directly related to the quality of the news. There hasn't been much big news, therefore there haven't been many big articles.

    Not exactly, but partly. You can write a quality article on just about anything. If there's no major news, or can't write an article don't put it up.

    I have to agree with skyline_-. But, since it just started, I am holding off on passing my official judgement.

    I think if we got a crew of decent writers to firm a news crew, then things might be very good. Things would be better if this crew actually went out and sought the news, instead of waiting for it to happen.
