What would you think of a simpler news submission mechanism (e.g. a highly hacked BBPress) that would let you submit your own WordPress/blogging news to WeblogToolsCollection without too much trouble?
The posts show in the sidebar (original sidebar code from Photomatt), users are able to post their comments on news, support is STILL provided (and should be sought) at the WordPress forums and I will pick and choose interesting tidbits to display on the front page.
Please register yourself on the News page and post all your new items through there. This new development is to alleviate the problem of people having to wait for me to have the time to post their news. I think this will increase productivity but time will tell.
