Thinking about the news front end again

We've been doing quite a bit of wordpress work lately, and that got me thinking about the GS news front end again

It would still have the same problem of separate accounts for the forums tho, and we could probably use Disqus to power the comments for the front end (so people could sign-in with twitter/fb/open-id etc).

I sooo don't want to see the designs go to waste - they took a few months of hard work and are still pretty slick

Maybe to begin with I could just copy and paste press releases as 'news' perhaps with the occasional rumour - or maybe launch it with just PS3/4 news/rumours to begin with... until we get more writers.

Dunno what to do - my time is extremely limited but a) don't want the designs to go to waste and b) would really like to see the a news front end up before the next generation of consoles start to emerge.

What does everyone else think? Any of you still interested in writing? or seeing it even?

I like Disqus, but it does take the control away from the site.

For me, rolling my own site with Socia, it's great.

Ah right. I would prob stick with WP as it's a pretty good blog platform (although if it took off would do a custom site).
