    Well, I've stated before that I hated how plain the news looked on the new layout and due to that fact, I decided to spruce up the news layout a little bit. For one, I added avatars to the post (so any admin who posts a news topic that does have an avatar will be clearly distinguishable on the homepage). Second, I changed up the layout a little.

    So what do you think? Better or worse? Any additional changes needed (ignoring the archives, I'm still working on that)?

    PS. I did forget to mention, I'm back in town. So....I'm back! I didn't win very much this trip though. Only came home $15 richer.

    I knew I'd forget something. I also added the total views of a specific news item to the displayed information. You can see it clearly next to the comments.

    Nice avatar, sorry for my absense, no excuse just college moving and internet connection trouble blah blah.

    OK, I've laid a little tiny bit of groundwork for the archives. For now, you can simply click next/previous through them. I think for the archives, I'll do something a little simpler that what I originally planned, and I'll just list the topic titles in a dropdown box that will just jump you straight to that topic. That should be a lot easier and a lot faster to add than a full archive page. Though, we'll no longer need a new tab in the homepage for the archives..
