Dear Niero, Hamza, and Dale,
The community needs to be better informed and more involved with what is going on around the site. There have been 13 different shit storms going on in the last week or two across all parts of Dtoid (and beyond), and something has to change from the top down. We need to hear from you.
What I propose is this: a regular "State of the Union"-type post in the cblogs or on the front page that speaks directly to us, the people that keep this thing going. Nothing fancy. Every two weeks, or every month, Hamza and Dale shoot the shit and let us know what is going on with the site, or hell, just their lives. Give us a glimpse behind the curtain. Kick around a few ideas and see what people think.
I think that this would be a simple fix to help rebuild the strong editor/community ties that have been a staple of Dtoid since its inception. This type of transparency is desperately needed, guys. There is a lot of ill will brewing within the community at the moment, and opening up a safety valve and letting off some of this steam would be a good thing. Problems would be addressed more quickly before they fester. Community members would have a sense of where things are headed. Staff members would have a direct feed of what is on our minds and what we'd like to see most.
It's easy, free PR, and I think that every member of the community would appreciate the gesture. So, how about it?
