Hey, guys!

I'm currently starting the process of putting together an e-mail newsletter for Debate.org.

Don't worry, we won't be spamming your inboxes. You will have the option to opt-out, and you will also be able to choose whether you want to receive a daily, weekly, or monthly newsletter.

That being said... What kind of things would you all want to see included in this newsletter? What sort of information do you consider valuable? Obviously, we are going to talk about new and upcoming features to the site. I was also thinking about putting in a list of the day/week/month's top debates, opinions, & forum topics. There is a potential for member spotlights and interviews. Would you want to see things like # of new members, traffic trends, etc.?

Any feedback you all have would be much appreciated. Obviously, this newsletter needs to be useful for YOU, otherwise there is absolutely no point to it.

Thanks in advance! :)

I wouldn't want a newsletter in the first place.

It's kind of doing the most.

But, if I WERE to have one...

Member interviews would be a top priority. Also, maybe a, say, Noob of the Month, or even simply Member of the Month. Kind of like when Xbox LIVE had their Member Spotlight?

It's VERY sarcastic. If you haven't noticed him, somehow :P, let's just say he is a very trolly troll. In fact, he's our resident example of a troll. He constantly makes "update" threads...that make no sense whatsoever.....but yeah, he does it.

Potentially. We are in the very preliminary planning stages right now. I will definitely look into this.

I like these.

Add to them, notable topics (both debates and forum conversations, linked) and/or notable posts.

Upcoming or recent changes to the site.

As far as having interviews and/or a member of the month, what do you see as the criteria for their selection? Straight from the leader board?

I like that policy and certainly am not biased over this idea just because im number 2 on the leaderboard....

A vote perhaps? Monthly poll? Nomination?

Cause...I dunno, I think it wold be cool to be interviewed... :P

And, if we do the leader board, I got no chance. Plus, with how the leader board works, your not gonna get a lot of the cool people on DDO that way.

Should we host a monthly poll?

Apparently you were reading my mind, because we posted that at the exact same time. Ha.

I believe the Leaderboard criteria is going to be reexamined soon anyways.

So for daily, I'm thinking...

Most popular from the previous day:
-Debates
-Opinions
-Forum Threads
-Members (most active)
-Blog posts

Also:
-Feedback wanted (w/ links to forum threads and polls)
-New members

Anything else for a DAILY report/newsletter?

Hmmm... in terms of debating, I don't see why not. The leaderboard is determined by debates won by user votes.

In terms of the forums, I'm sure threads for suggestions, nominations, etc., which is what we normally do, would suffice, but it would be more efficient to have some sort of rating system for either users or individual forum posts and/or threads.
