I am behind here but will get to this soon. Could be a fun way to drum up some conversation.

I trust you to leave out the ones that aren't actual press releases. A lot of time hardware press releases aren't anything more than jockeying for the public consciousness. As soon as you see hedge words like "hopes", "considering", "speculating" they're just grist for the rumour mill and take deserved attention away from actual hardware companies doing actual things.
Outside of that, I dig almost all hardware news.

|madmat||The main reason I was thinking about the section is simply that it's the first one you see in the forum when you get here.|

I was thinking of just renaming "Community Submissions" to "Submissions", then adding the other category. It doesn't really belong under the site HQ because that's meant to be for site matters and content.
I think I'll set the forum up later, and change it along the way as we need to.

|madmat||Personally I'd just ad another section to this subforum (Site HQ).|

|Rob Williams||Yup, I'm starting to think that this thread didn't even need to exist, haha. Will leave it here though, and ponder how I want to go about this. A "Press Release" sub-forum might be best, rather than our usual news forum since that's meant for readers, not us.|

|madmat||I agree with Optix. You never know what is going to generate interest.|

|Optix||If there's enough positive response to a press release it could be a good indicator that we might have overlooked something if we weren't planning on reviewing it.|

Should we begin posting press releases in our forums?
On any given day, I receive a lot of press releases, and sometimes, there are some worth talking about. But thanks to a lack of time or some other factor, we don't talk about the product or service until we review it, or not at all.
So, I'm looking to gauge interest here. Would it be worth our while to relay these press releases to you guys? We'd basically post some of them verbatim in our news forum, along with the images we were supplied. It'd be an easy way for us to just get the information in front of your eyes, and save our time for more important news posts.
I should note that these might not -just- be press releases, but if we're sent information directly then we might just post that also.
Let us know!
