Re: Game thread idea
I know the moderator tools for vBulletin, but have never used the administrator tools. Most of what I know about RSS on it comes from a few minutes of reading the docs and my memories of RedsZone's previous brief attempt at incorporating it.
IMO, it would be well worth the effort to incorporate those feeds, because during games, they would be the equivalent of adding two posters who are sitting in the stadium press box to the game threads. It'd be a real boon to have those contributions in real time.
