    Default News bar for the forums

    Just a basical bar for news and updates. Basically this:
    News is displayed

    That goes up after a minute with another bit of news following

    That news is displayed. Repeat.

    This way, people who don't regularly check all forums can still get a quick lowdown on what's going on around the forums.

    Seems like a very good and simple idea.

    Would also display new news from Bulbanews?

    But any ways I vote this UP.

    As long as it's not the same colour as the control bar as it is in that picture, I'm fine with it.

    Having it as the same colour as part of the frame makes it look like you have a framing problem, which makes it look ugly.

    (Not voting up or down, though. I don't really care too much either way, just giving my comments.)
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    UP. It's an excellent way to get important updates to everyone.
    I'm the essence of
    daydreamer. time-waster. black and white painter.
    in an upside-down world.
    eyes closed. dreams unfold. ascending realities; open to me.

    I like this idea, so I will vote UP. Is it built in to vbulletin? (Don't know much about newsbars...

    I do think that a minute is a bit long though.

    Hmm, I'll look around for ways to add in a news update...

    As for my opinion, UP. I always seem to miss when things happen and it's awful when you miss something concerning the rules and get in trouble 0_o.
