I've added a "Latest News" notice that you may have, well for lack of a better word, noticed. This takes the form of a "Marquee" (scrolling text).

Let me know your thoughts on this.

I never thought of this. What I think? Hmm...I think Mighty Kaostic strikes again xD. It's a pretty good idea, it gives all people informations about different stuffs and you CAN'T miss it.

It's convenient and doesn't take up much space. I like it.

Make the scrolling speed slower, or make it that when you hover over it it stops. Because I can't seem to click on anything :(

Oh fancy ! I like it.
Love all the time and effort you are putting into the forums

I've slowed it down a tad.

It's nice, if I could change one thing, smooth scrolling.

Seems smooth to me?

I like it, mainly because I hate the new forum set up, I have to click through a dozen different subforums to get to the forum post I'm looking for. This at least tells me something new I can see without going on a click adventure.

i would prefer if it would be closer to a constant revolving text, for example if you just noticed the sliding text feature and you didn't get to see the first couple of news tid bits you would have to wait for the next one. its not the end of the word but its just a preference.

It is somehow not needed in general news in my oppinion. But for forum rules like the guru thing it is quite nice! So it would be good to have (mainly) only such things there.

Looks like a neat addition to the forums. Keep up the good work.

Could perhaps the skin sale be on it too?

Would be pretty neat to know what's on sale each day!

Was going to add this, but I couldn't see the latest skin sale on the website (as in, I don't think there is one?)

The only place I could see the skin sales is facebook. I think twitter too but I don't really check things there. There was once in game announcements about all stuffs, including skin sales but it got removed for some reason.

Very awesome idea and implementation. I love how you can use it to check the mode of the day too.

Looks great, my only issue with it is that the text on it feels blurry compared to the rest, dunno if that's just on my end or if it's a slightly lower IQ than the font on the forum, minor gripe, good job!

Perhaps allow us to independently chose scrolling speeds since unlike as4mo3 I feel its a bit too slow on the other hand.
that or let us be able to stop and manually scroll it at will and then let it resume scrolling on its own when you are messing with it. :p

I can't do any of that without javascript, and that's just a bit too far for a simple news feed.

You should also add that, at the moment, certain gods and their recolors are available for 50 gems in bundles.

Awesome feature imo. Not having to log into the game to see if the MOTD is worth playing is pretty sweet.

Dammu approves this feature. You can keep it.

Overall I can appreciate the concept but for some reason the scrolling speed is hurting my eyes, is there any way to decrease it slightly?

I won't waste time waiting for the words to scroll by because I read 550 wpm

I can read at around 95% accuracy at 2,000 wpm. It's fine, trust me.

You know, JFK was able to read at over 2,500 wpm.

Wow this is awesome. It really feels like some love and care are being put into the forums with the marquee and the new way the forum is organized.

Keep up the good work.

Since, it's underlined, it seems more feedback is needed. It's just great. Hot links for people who don't know where to search or people who missed something. Not to big to bother other people. Guess it will hard to get a negative feedback here. Great idea.

This thread is for feedback on the new news system.

You might want this. (http://forums.smitegame.com/showthread.php?56425-Preliminary-Patch-Notes-Season-2-January-5th-2015)

Don't know when exactly you opted to just show everything instead of having it scroll but I think this is best.

Agreed.
It said TBA for about a week, and now it's stuck on that.

I tend to update this as and when big news comes out now. At the start, I updated it day-to-day, but it's a job that just slipped down the ever-increasing pile ;p.

I will remove the MoTD for now, and keep it purely as a news segment.
