    Going to test pilot an idea this week for you guys:

    Transformers News Roundup 10/22 - 10/28 - Transformers News - TFW2005

    For those who maybe are not checking the boards as often as most, or for those who've been away for a week or two and want to know "what did I miss?", this is for you.

    So, sound off, what do you think? Is it something that you think you might make use of, or could you not care less if this service is offered or not? All of us on staff are interested to hear what you think of the idea.

    Awesome idea!

    I could use this. It's nice to have all of one week's new in one place.

    Destructoid does the same thing, I find it's very handy for things I might have missed. Keep it, it's a great idea.

    I don't know how often I'd use it, but I do think it's a good idea anyways.

    I like it! It's especially a good idea when there are times of higher news traffic. I would only suggest having a thumbnail image next to each news bit (even the same one used for the original news article, as it would probably save time/work).

    Not sure if it needs to be weekly or more biweekly, but I definitely love the idea! I love video reviews so having them grouped together in the one post makes it easier to find them if I am away from the site for a period

    ^ I agree fortnightly might be best but obviously the quantity of news varies from week to week, some times it's slow others it's very busy.

    Love the idea though and hope it's something that stays.

    I check at least twice a day on these boards, so it won't affect me, unless I'm on holiday...

    The dates are wrong. November is the 11th month, not the 10th.

    I like it , please keep it , it could be a very valuable tool when someone wants to verify the first sighting of a figure or to find a particular image from a certain month's news story.

    Yes, please. Very useful for fans like myself who aren't able to check the site regularly due to work and other online activities.

    Pleased by the response so far, looks like this is something we'll do more often. This is definitely for guys like you Voiceroy who don't get on as much - we recognise that not all of our readers visit the site daily, and this is our attempt at keeping things accessible and easy for you to keep up with what you've missed.

    Eh hehe, well, since I'm used to writing 22/11 instead of 11/22 I was already pretty mixed up. At any rate, you knew what I meant when I said "last week's news".
