I think it would be a good idea to replace the "Latest Tutorials" section in the right-pane of the BleepingComputer Forum page for "Latest News", because the latest tutorial is from 2013 (we're almost in 2016) and there's way more News being posted than Tutorials. It would put the accent on the News and hopefully attract more views. I would also raise it's position and put it right after "Recent Topics", since there's also more News than Downloads and they would be more easily noticable that way.

So by the screenshot, replace the section inside the box by "Latest News", and move it in between "Recent Topics" and "Latest Downloads".

I would even put the "Latest Virus Removal Guides" before the "Latest Downloads" but that's me.

Thoughts?

That's a good idea. Particularly as the "Latest Tutorials" section doesn't include tutorials from the Linux How-To and Tutorial sub-forum, but then if it did, all the tutorials in the Latest Tutorials section would be about Linux. :)

Alternatively, there's plenty of space in that right hand column to add a section about news; it would just mean moving other sections down the page if a new news section was to be added above them.

I will add the news section, but going to leave the tutorials in there. I plan on adding some shortly for windows 10. Just have to install it first, which I plan on doing this weekend.

Added the news list the sidebar.

I will be adding my first tutorial in almost 3 years tomorrow.

I want to get back to writing tutorials and making this site what it was originally created for!

Anyone who wants to help write tutorials, you are more than welcome to. PM me to discuss.

Awesome, thanks Grinler!

Once I finish a few things, I might be able to write a few tutorials. I have a few ones ready that I could adjust for publishing here (add more pictures, descriptions, etc.)
