To Webmaster and others whom this might concern,

I've noticed that the monthly CotM announcements seems to monopolize a proportionally large space on the front page. It seems that there are other important public announcement articles that might be better suited to be presented at that location.

To reduce the CotM announcements, would it be possible to create a sidebox, similar to the "Milestones" box for CotM? For example, making a box just below the Milestones box with a listing of the CotM winners for the last 12 months with clickable links to the CotM forum vote?

Something like:
Cache of the Month:
September 2007 - GC12VTX - 5 Digits 2 Float Your Boats by IBcrashen, Gonsolo & Roxy
August 2007 - GC11PYB - Mastermind by pfalstad
July 2007 - GCGQEC - ROCKY TOP by loneeagle_24

And so on. If so, who can help me create this or show me how I can create it?

While anything is possible, I'm going to suggest that we hold the idea for a while (a month or so). There are some things in the works now, although I don't want to let the cat out of the bag just yet... Cool
