Is there any need/desire for a general newsletter?

Postby elfish_lad on Sat Feb 13, 2016 8:15 pm

Hi. The Elf here. Former newsletter writer. I know there is a new clan report. Is there any need to resurrect a newsletter?

If so, then perhaps it could be more of a quarterly magazine type thing.

I would only do it if Big Wham supported it as a part of his money making/advert type scheme with short vids and ads etc.

Lemme know.

I know BigWham wishes the newsletter never went away, for what it's worth. We've had discussions about it in the past, and discussed it recently with the release of clan platoon report.

I doubt there is overall big interest for it, perhaps. Idk. Finding enough volunteers etc will be another task.

Back when I joined the editorial staff it was just samuelc812 and myself and the nobodies did the graphics.

Sometimes less is more.

I tried almost two years to keep it alive. Tons of people volunteered, but few of them ever wrote anything.

I would very much like to see the newsletter revived. If you can pull it off, more power to you. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Yeah, it was a big reason why I read the newsletter as well. It was the main reason I included a interview in the new clan Platoon Report as well, thinking that it was a big part of the past newsletters, it would be a popular feature again. But its been like pulling teeth to get any questions asked and idk how many have enjoyed the first interviews, as I dont think anyones really commented on that feature.

Oh well, fun to do it anyway even if im the only one reading it :ugeek:

inb4 owen suggests this should be in Suggestions.

(Oh wait he posted and didnt say it!)

I'm too new to the site to have an opinion, I've never read a newsletter.

I never read the full Newsletter, just whatever took my interest, usually the interview(s) and clan reports. However, the Dispatch never really hit full throttle for the entire time I was there and that was a while ago.

I enjoyed the newsletter. I as I would with any newsletter, newspaper, etc. never read the whole thing. I think different parts, for different folks. I might suggest an occasional spam distribution just to expose people to it.

I always read the news from the top, (i.e. from the owner). I want to know what he is thinking about as the most influential person on where this site goes.

I read articles talking about trends, plans, etc.

I skimmed/read interviews depending on how well I knew the player and whether they interesting questions. When they sank to the level of boxers/briefs I tune out.

I rarely read articles filled with game stats.

Yes, I would again subscribe were it there.

I enjoyed the newsletter and the current Clan report.

A possibility may be to not take on the entirety of the newsletter at once, but instead release the different sections of it individually.
I feel that if were broken up, it may garner more interest (at least some portions of it) then if it is presented all at once. B/c that can be an overwhelming task in of itself to find the interesting bit within the newsletter for that particular person.

For example, seeing that the interview seemed to be possibly the most interesting part, a following could potentially grow if there were a stand alone "Interview Series."

I very much agree.

I think it's cool that there is a clan report.

We'll just leave it at that.

I would probably read the newsletter if it was a surrealist tract written by the bots.
