Purpose

The DHPD Newsletter is a round up of posts made to the DHPD forum. It is reproduced here, without the relevant links to forum posts, to provide a regular update on DHPD activity.

2011 News

DHPD Weekly, 14th July 2011

Announcement

No Weekly next week. I’m on holiday.

When I get back I’m thinking about changing the format of the weekly to a stickied `latest threads’ post which gets bumped when it is changed, rather than a weekly post. This is to reduce the scope for people to grab back-links from the weekly and then use it to cause trouble. The Wiki version of the weekly would be closed.

DHPD Weekly, 30th June 2011

Announcement

From posts and PMs, I get the impression the weekly is nice but not majorly important. As a result I’m going to work to scale it back to something which takes up a more proportionate amount of time.

As a result there are some format changes. I’ve dropped the Current Ops and Revive point listings (because you should all know where those threads are). I’ve also dropped the listings of warrants served or removed since the public list of Most Wanted on the wiki should be sufficient. Empty sections, which I normally delete from the master copy will remain but with "nothing to report" messages.

I’m also going to stop maintaining the Archive (sorry!). Though I’ll start a new Weekly thread, say, once per year and then the admins can archive the old one.

I may also drop the listing of new and returning members, but we’ll see how that goes.
