LeaderboardEdit

No problems with the leaderboard concept...good idea! Just one question. The WikiWork stuff...I read through the subpage describing it. And, to boot, I'm terrible at statistics. One should probably write a very simple layman's explanation of what the values mean. Because I have no idea what it means. --Son (talk) 00:52, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

State update sectionEdit

I think for one issue every year, the state update section should be dropped in favor of an "editor update" section. I know I've griped in the past (in other forums) about the same states being in the state update section every issue, but so far we don't even have that – just one state so far. This idea is about keeping the newsletter fresh so we actually want to update it. I don't want to see it die because of apathy again. –Fredddie 00:26, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

User interviewsEdit

Are these for everyone to fill out, or just "new" users? I have seen editors that have been with us for awhile filling them in. Allen (Morriswa) (talk) 23:13, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Some specific editors were invited to participate, based mostly on newness to the project. Imzadi 1979  23:27, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

LatenessEdit

So when are you publishing? It says the deadline was mid April... A month and a half ago. Rcsprinter123 (cackle) @ 21:56, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

@Rcsprinter123: the newsletter editors cannot put together issues without content. If you would like to contribute features, please do so, but I will not write full newsletter issues by myself just to make a deadline. Imzadi 1979  21:59, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

QuestionEdit

@Imzadi1979: (Specifically pinging you cause you seem most active here) I've just recently joined the WikiProject (although I've been editing for just a tiny bit longer as an unofficial member) and started looking around. I've noticed several areas lacking and this one took to my attention the most. I was wondering if we got enough participation would you consider participating/publishing. Potentially bringing attention back to the WikiProject (and no I'm not saying use it as promotion/advertising but people may see it and be like "U.S. Roads newsletter? Oh yeah I remember that!" bringing their attention it). It appeared it was once a great project but that participation has significantly went down recently.

As before, TheDoctorWho, if there is content, we can publish. Imzadi 1979  04:03, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
@Imzadi1979: I saw the last reply however that was three years agoo so I was not sure if your views had changed. I'll see what I can do. TheDoctorWho (talk) 04:12, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
