Need help? Just post your newsletter here![edit]

And someone will help you put it in the correct location. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 00:42, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

@Headbomb: thanks for doing this! English Wikisource recently relaunched Wikisource:News. I'd love for it to get included if you don't mind. –MJLTalk 06:37, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

@Headbomb: Please look at the right in orange ('NIEUWSBRIEVEN') at the main page of Dutch Wikinews -> next step within each newsletter: click on 'Bron' (= 'source' in Dutch). Thanks for your nice template! Ymnes (talk) 18:52, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
@Ymnes: it seems everything listed there is listed here, except for "Nieuwsbrief Wikimedia België", which I assume refers to [1]? I've added it to the template. Is there something else that needs to be added? Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 20:12, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, it's all right in this way. Ymnes (talk) 20:15, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
@Headbomb: Would you mind adding fr:Wiktionnaire:Actualités? Jc86035 (talk) 18:45, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
@Jc86035: that page seems to not exist. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:23, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
I suppose fr:Wikt:Wiktionnaire:Actualités is what you meant? Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:26, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

What is this?[edit]

How was this made? What is the source of all these old records?

I have sometimes seen a newsletter effort come and go but what a trap all this is! So much labor and likely so few readers, with so little hope of being sustained! Anyone thinking of starting a newsletter should have access to this to see the barriers they will face. Blue Rasberry (talk) 13:31, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

@Bluerasberry: Not really sure I fully understand the question. But I mostly used Wikidata for the Signpost-like stuff, and the old List of Newsletters for most of the Wikipedia/WikiProject stuff. There was some general sleuthing as well. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 14:45, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Idea for a Meta-focused newsletter[edit]

I've made a post to Wikipedia:Village pump (idea lab) suggesting the development of a Meta-focused weekly newsletter, partly performing a new role unrelated to existing newsletters and partly filling the void left by the Signpost's recent change to become a monthly publication. Talk page watchers might be interested in that, or perhaps this talk page would be a better place to have that discussion (the idea lab page doesn't seem to be particularly active at the moment).
