I have been working on a brand new Tricked Out News. This is a seperate module from the news module. It will work with the old news module, older Tricked Out News installs and with Neralex's awesome mod to TON. It will have a slider at the top that displays the last 5 stories you have posted with a slider image uploaded. Below the slider, it will have the last 5 article titles under the topics you have articles for with css tricks to show more on click. On mouse over, you will be able to see the first few lines of the articles content.
