    On DDI Articles: Please check the News Page first [UPDATE: rule relaxed]

    We're trying to encourage conversations about a given topic to take place in a single location, rather than in multiple threads across the forum; this makes it easier for folks to find discussion of the topic they're interested in and helps ensure decent, in-depth discussions rather than a bunch of short exchanges.

    This also means that these convenient links to DDI articles appear on EVERY page of the site, rather than just in one forum, making them super-easy for people to find and access. I have included a handy-dandy screenshot guide below. They're always 1-click away, wherever you are on the site. So they're effectively "stickied" in every single forum, including the 5E forum.

    For that reason, when posting a new link to a DDI article, please check the news page/forums first to see if it's already there. That saves us mods the trouble of having to move and merge threads.

    Also, please be aware that if you post something before it hit the news page, it will likely get moved and merged there once the news topic is up. Hopefully that won't happen too often, because we have a new RSS system which should grab the latest DDI article links and intros and post them on the news page pretty quickly, and we've been working with WotC to make sure that all works correctly.

    Thanks, folks!

    Could we maybe have links to those articles in this forum? I never (and I mean NEVER) look in the news forum unless I notice a link to it in a forum I do actually go to, and I think it makes sense to have discussions about 5e at least linked to (if not actually within) the New Horizons forum.

    Easy solution: start looking. I can't make you look there; but I am asking you to.

    I've found that the best thing to do is just to give up on the subforums, and use the "all threads" page.

    A news feed in that sidebar would be a great help. I don't check the specific news page very often, but I do look at the headlines as they pop up while I'm browsing the site and debating HP.

    I hate that they're in the news forum. I think it's a really bad decision.

    I'm sorry to hear that, Merric; hatred is such a strong word!

    I would strongly prefer to have at least a link to the article here. It's much easier for me to use this site if I can find all of the information I'm looking for in one place.
