Standards for removal of "Old" news?

If we get too much news stacked up, the Main Page starts looking bad. Especially in the new layout we've been looking at. I'd be in favor of a One Week standard for news removal. Of course, if news flow slowed, this wouldn't be very good. Perhaps a "number of items" or "number of listed days" standard would be good. ProdigySim 08:09, 6 March 2008 (PST)

I suggest 7 news items should be up for any given time. Even if there's a rush of new things it should work. The main page should stay relatively clutter-free. I also suggest that the Current Events page keep the latest 14 news items. Anything beyond that seems fit for "old news". --Chell65 13:11, 8 March 2008 (PST)

Link to the official site

Please, when posting news about some new homebrew, link directly to the official site, instead of some unaffiliated page which is just trying to get traffic. Especially don't link to sites that promote warez or other illegal activities. --Davr 08:41, 8 April 2008 (PDT)

If there is an wiki article, link to that page please. Felix123 18:10, 29 May 2008 (PDT)
