Thanks, Phil, that is very clear.
Now can you (or someone else) please point us to 10 such announcements or press releases that have been posted on the forum in the past 12 months?
This isn't an attempt to be awkward, I just think we need to question how much use this area would get before making a final decision as to whether or not to keep it.
I still remain unconvinced and if this is to be so tightly limited to official announcements it could easily be solved with a Sticky thread named using the same words at the top of the main Port conversations area of the forum.
Make suggestions and report problems.
