I'm very impressed with the great content in the news, both in sheer amount and quality.
But I feel "News" is not the right appellation for this section; it rather feels like a blog or online magazine and I suggest renaming it accordingly. Especially since there is a (different) news section on the wiki front page that is really concerned with actual news concerning Sarna and the BTW universe.

Thanks! We have some great writers helping out, including ClanWolverine101 from the wiki.

I understand your thoughts -- I went back and forth with what to call it, between "news" and "blog". While I agree that BTW has its own news section on the front page, it's really just sound-bites limited to the wiki.

The main news section could be called a "blog", but I feel like that's too technical of a word. Really, the news section is about "BattleTech news", not about "BattleTech blog". Both words could communicate what the link brings you to, but I think "news" is straighter to the point. While sarna.net has been a wiki much longer than it has had general BT news/blog, my hope is that the news section grows to become as helpful to the BT community as the wiki.

Still thinking about it though
