Thanks for posting this Paul. I like what you’ve done with PureScript News a lot. I’m not in a position to help unfortunately, but I wish you all the best with it.
I hope this doesn’t come across as patronising, but I’m very much in favour of establishing a community norm that people have lives outside of purescript which sometimes take priority, so I’d like to thank you for helping to establish this.
I also really enjoyed purescript.news and would be sad to see it disappear. I wonder to what extent we could help by automating certain things. For example, it might be nice to have a Slack bot which allowed people to add interesting content to a review queue somewhere, along with a description which could be edited later. Hopefully if the submissions were good, that would reduce the amount of work needed?
Do you have a description of the types of things you’d like to appear in PS News, and the audience it’s targeting?
I’ve been curious - is it a money-making venture for you? (I see there was a company sponsored on some issues) If so, it sounds like you’re asking for free labor here.
Are you interested in managing content suggestions using an open system like Github, a Discourse topic/category, a Google Docs product, or similar?
There’s an official bookmarklet but it requires authorization, so I imagine this would need to just post to a GitHub repo or something.
I think that could help, although a lot of my focus so far has been on reviewing the content to make sure it’s suitable for the issue. In other words, making sure there’s some sort of balance in terms of approachability and across categories (general news, packages, videos, tutorials, etc)
There’s some sort of trade-off to be made there but I think it could work.
