From this point forward, the only options available to members is a "yes" vote, or "alert". There are no other options as we desire to focus more on getting your analysis of breaking news up on ATSNN.com than we are with alternative viewpoints on why the news may not fit.
An increased number of ATSNN.com moderators and staff have access to a management tool that enables us to decide the priority of articles on the news home page, alter topics, and upgrade important submissions immediately.

Uh... by not voting for it? That's my plan.
Submissions have 48 hours to become ATSNN stories, after that, it automatically move to current events if it wasn't voted up.
