That was a hard day.
So I decided to post all the news I wanted to post yesterday this evening - and that sets a new record for the number of news posted in a single day (I mean, since I'm managing news): a good 10 news (I think the previous record was 8 news).
A problem is now that if I push too much news on the frontpage, the older news vanishes quite fast, and that doesn't leave you much than 5-6 days to read them (of course, you can still use the news archive forum, but I suspect that many of you don't visit it very often).
Speaking of that forum, it gives me some interesting numbers about what (I believe) is of interest to you: product releases typically scores in the 1200 views; news about conferences get roughly 300 hits; the classical industry related news will get around 700 hits. Of course, these numbers varies, and sometimes you'll have only 500 views for a particular product (ex: MaPZone 2.6) while an industry news will be read 1000 times (ex: Peter Moore, from MS to EA). Sometimes, a news completely skyrocket to an impressive amount of hits (ex: XNA Game Studio 2.0 this winter? - 3000 hits; Nintendo opens the Wii to independent game developers - 6850 hits).
In the end, that's pretty difficult for me (and for the other members of the team) to find out what you want to know. I know that a news about some ban law will generate traffic; I can also be pretty sure that the announce of a major product will do so too. Part of the problem is that major products are not released in quantities, and game ban laws are a bit boring in the end.
So, guys, what do you want to see in the news? What would be an improvement of the news pipeline in your opinion?
