Users shouldn't be allowed to post there. If I want to look and see what the LATEST announcement is about maintenance or whatever, it should be at the top, not 10 threads down, because someone just discovered the Del Taco promotion or whatever and needed to post "Cool! -10 char limit" Either lock threads that are out of date, or disallow user posting.
I'm gonna throw in my support for this as well.
Getting very frustrating to have to sift through 20+ threads just to find that one thing you are looking for.
I would rather have the Fed News Netword forum to be a place where the devs can post news about the state of the game or servers when appropriate, and keep it closed to posting from users.
