News Box

I don't know if it has been suggested yet, but I think it would be nice if the news box text on the top of the page was clickable. It should bring you to a site with all the previous featured banners and links to the respective threads on the forums. I really like those banners, would be a shame if they were lost :)

Maybe in the interim you could have a permanent banner up there where the shadow of the beast one is that is clickable and links you to a locked thread which is editable by the admins that has all of the previous news topics as links.

If the admins don't have time to develop a mod for SMF this would be a easy quick fix that could last for months while something is fleshed out.

In other words, I like the idea and I think it would benefit the forum in the long run.

yeh something like that should be doable. Or at least a locked, pinned newsbanner thread

That would indeed be nifty.  I logged on today, saw the new ones, and immediately thought, "What were the old ones that just disappeared?"
