Cone.png This article or section is a stub. Stubs are articles that have not yet received substantial attention from the authors. They are short or insufficient pieces of information and require additions to further increase the article's usefulness. The project values stubs as useful first steps toward complete articles.

Our newsletter

We'd like to have regular newsletters go out to subscribers, the content would be a few dedicated topics (mainly things from the news, but in more detail, and perhaps a collection of other news items and research etc. It doesn't have to be regular on a schedule, but rather just refines and is sent out when it reaches a satisfactory state of completeness.

Platform newsletters

Once a platform has enough members and enough activity, it becomes worthwhile to have a role dedicated to managing the platform's content. The basic blog-style site news format can then be extended to a proper newsletter format which can be viewed online like normal, emailed or printed as a booklet. The newsletter acts as a portal for members to keep abreast of current affairs and concerns within the platform and also keeps all platforms up to date with the project and the world as a whole.

Newsletters are articles which are collaborated on in the same way as a channel because they need to be in a complete state ready for publication and distribution on their regular cycle.
