    What about a new section on BHW where we can share the new issues of monthly Magazines, like Apple Magazines, Android Magazines, PC, or any other subject that could be valuable to us? I can get all the latest issues of magazines from a lot of subjects.

    Maybe BHW open this section.

    Seems like a good idea that would be useful to read and reference...

    Plus the section would need very little mod management...

    Thanks OP...

    I'd definitely use it, these sort of things currently are put in the Lounge and it's sometimes difficult separate the interesting articles from those that are a complete waste of time.

    A breaking news bar would be great too!

    I would be for this idea. Magazines are great to look through for ideas.

    Too many sections make certain other sections dead. There's a Downloads section for a reason. Why not share your stuff there?

    Maybe a sub section can be made in there?

    My vote goes against it. Though this sounds like a nice idea and comes with good intentions, but:
    - There are many other places where you can get these (every torrent sites have a newspaper/magazine section, so does usenet)
    - There is no use of having a section where people will just copy/paste links from other sources
    - BHW may be a knowledge sharing community, it is not a warez site.

    But that's just my opinion, anyway admins will have the final word. :)

    We have a whole forum section for suggestions for the forum. This should go there, also you should drop by and read and lend opinions on other people's suggestions. Things that get a lot of support tend to get added when it is gotten around to; unfortunately not enough people seem to check that section to get movement on a lot of great ideas :)

    As for your suggestion I don't think a whole forum subsection is needed. just post them in downloads with a [GET] tag, I think that would be appropriate. There are plenty of more popular download topics than magazines that don't have a subsection and making one for each little topic would be overkill and make it a pain to find anything. Just my 2 cents :)

    There are tons of sites out there that offer purely ezines and magazines... Why integrate a feature like that in this forum? Nah...
