    [​IMG] How many people here read the news that Tal, Mollusken, me and Veldrin post on to the front page. Also, what do you think of the news posted?

    I always do and would not come here if it weren't for them in the first place. You're all doing a great job :thumb: . (I mean doing a great job as in giving me another thread to spam :grin: )

    [​IMG] Mr Z:

    Personally I really like to read those hard earned news... it shows commitment.

    And they are always fresh... good thing since I think we all dislike sites that post no new content in about a year or more. That's why Sorcerers Place is THE Place.

    I read the Headlines, and if anything interests me there, I read the article.

    My SP bookmark is directly to the Boards of Magic, so I don't always see the front page. But, I know that the news changes daily so I check it at least once a day. I'll skim most of the articles, and read completely about a third to half of them. Lots of good info there folks! My thanks to the news writers :)

    Just like Wildfire, I always check the headlines. If it sounds interesting, I read it. If not, I always know I can look it up in the archives later.

    [​IMG] I always read the articles, but I tend to skip the ones that don't apply to me, such as the recent IWD2 articles.
    But the news updates are incredibly good, so keep up the nice work guys! :thumb:

    [​IMG] I go straight to the boards but look at the front page when there's a site update and/or im waiting for release dates/patches etc. I also go at least once a week to vote in the poll.

    However when the boards are being a little slow then i'll read through all the news articles i haven't read to pass the time. The news is very good so well done to all 4 of you :thumb:

    My link to SP is to the front page so thats always the first thing I see, usually I get to read all the news sooner or later.

    I always open the front page.
    First I check on who posted the news. Then I read something and something I don't read based on previous news from a poster. I mean, I don't use Hamlet's question "to read or not to read".

    Oh, and if inside the news there is a quote on David Gaider, I simply skip that. No matter the quality of the poster. I simply can't stand that person. Sorry about that.
