Damage is right. Basically it went like this; he had some requirements for me to meet before he would allow the updates to return and after a lot of consideration I did the honest thing and admitted that I couldn't commit to was he was asking. It was my call to stop the updates, I thought I made that clear in the post Damage linked to.
Hey doc, I understand the requirements to be newsy, somewhat regular, and somewhat professional writing style. Is there a minimum length of commitment that we need?
Nope. I didn't ask for that. Seems oddly legalistic. I just wanted someone committed to doing it well in the new format with some consistency. I don't even care if it's not at regular intervals, really.
The whole "newsy" mandate does deserve some explanation. That's part of my desire to move away from the "weekly" folding update. The weekly update came whether things had changed much or not, and it wound up often being lists of items or just very formulaic, with nothing new to catch people's interest. I'd like the updates to focus on things that are happening that are new, different, and interesting--contests, rivalries, big producers joining the team, changes to the unit types, research news, team overtakes, etc. See what I mean? I hope that's not an unreasonable request.
