Default Rotating Module for Feature Articles or Reviews

Howdy,

I just recently started looking into this and did some searches - but cannot seem to find what I am looking for, so please forgive me if you have already covered this.

What I am looking for is a way to make a module for the front page of a site that rotates an artice feature. What I mean is - a block that has a different snippet from one of the articles in the GARS forum. So a forum member comes to the site and there is the lead in for one article, then the next time they arrive the lead in from another article is featured.

So, does this already exist, can it be done, or is this a pipe dream?

Not aware of any add-on to do that though you might find something here or on vBorg to display latest threads, and you might be able to modify that to pull random threads from certain forums to get "rotating" articles and reviews.
