But I think there are not many people, who read it frequently.
My intension is to create something like a "ticker", which can be suscribed by people who are interested in Mogre news.
It should contain short information and links to details. (Not too much "spam"). Just to follow the main development of Mogre.
For example about new/improved addons, new Mogre versions, interesting Mogre applications, new documentation, etc.
This could be interesting for active Mogre users, but also for retired users (mostly because of less free-time), who like to know what happens.
I want to ask you all:
What do you think about such a ticker?
Now the question: How we want to do it?
Here are my ideas (options):
Create a Twitter account.
By use of the service cotweet it's possible to give write access to several users.
The advantage: News of several Mogre developers can be posted in one Twitter "channel".
Good for short news with links.
I can use my Google Plus account and create a "Mogre circle". Everybody who has a Google Plus account can be added to the circle and get a notice.
Mogre news would be posted only to the people of the Mogre circle. (Because I don't want to spam people, which doesn't use Mogre.)
Disadvantage: Every follower has to ask me to be aded to the Mogre circle.
Disadvantage 2: The news can only be posted by me, not by other Mogre developers.
I don't like Facebook. Also the group feature seems to be bad. But I list it here, because it would be an option.
I can create a specific forum topic for Mogre news.
Advantage: Everybody can push the button "suscribe topic". (You find it at the page bottom).
Disadvantage: The topic can get "dirty" by users, which post answers.
A seperate website (like a blog) with RSS / Atom feature.
Perhaps it's more interesting for more detailed news.
Although it seems to be an interesting option.
I'm not shure, how good RSS / Atom is in practice. I never used it.
Perhaps it's possible to add an e-mail reminder feature to a blog?
More ideas how to create a ticker?
Which option would you agree or disagree?
