New idea for community goings-on[edit]


I've had an idea after reading User:Kinnerc/WhereToWikinews? that might make people more aware of what's currently going on on this site, what discussions are being held, where help is needed etc. I've designed a little signpost-like box that I would like to introduce as a newsletter to post on user talk pages. Of course, the majority is copied from the Newsroom, which I think people don't visit often enough. Oh yeah, and the title should probably change :-D

I would appreciate some feedback on the idea, and also I'm interested to know if you would subscribe to such a newsletter. Please go to User_talk:Stevenfruitsmaak/Goings-on.

I'd be happy to get something like this once a week, it should also be copied to the wikinews-l mailing list.
Can you also put up a request for volunteers to do archiving catchup on the next issue? I'm stuck somewhere in early November and stuggling to get motivated to do a load. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:02, 7 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Rather, I'll add it to the WN:AAA right now.--Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 20:11, 7 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]
sounds good. As for the mailing list, its for all languages of wikinews, but its still proablly a good idea to poast it there. Bawolff 23:38, 7 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Good idea! Posting it to the mailing list could also help bring back inactive users. PVJ(Talk)(Newpages) 11:02, 8 January 2007 (UTC)[reply]
