New idea for community goings-on
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)
- Good idea! Posting it to the mailing list could also help bring back inactive users. PVJ(Talk)(Newpages) 11:02, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
