But you can only have one option....as Ken Livingstone said "if democracy changed anything it would be abolished"

Not without installing forum mods. It may be an option, I'll ask Barry.

Actually, don't really want any of those options. I'm glad to have the new feeds, just a question of organising them to avoid TEF topics disappearing if they haven't been viewed within 12 hours. Like others, one of the things I like best about the TEF is that I don't really bother looking anywhere else for news any more. The Monkey allows me to cherry-pick the rare items of real news from the media, and I'm pleased to have a link to the Washbag as I often think I should go there more often.

If you techie types can't sort out a Monkey sub-menu to see new headlines at a click, then as a last resort, should we make the Monkey just a single thread with links to the daily feeds?

There have been comments about how there is too much local media coverage on Swindon and now the forum is full of it. As above, a section to go for latest news items would be ideal. Those that want can read it. The majority of news items get no forum comments which takes away the point of needing them

This 

Therefore please implement the sub-folder for all news links if practicable.  That would be fantastic.

I still prefer the Adver...their fucking awful spelling almost makes it spoof-like.

Looks like the majority like the extra news links so they're staying.

However, taking the comments onboard, I will continue to look for ways to get these out of the recent topics feed. Thanks all.

Why is this thread in here twice?

Re the subject,  I think there is too much news clutter on here plus the stories get repeated.

I'm playing around with some options to get you moaning cunts a tidier layout. Unfortunately there may be a couple of fuck ups along the way.
