A summary of what happened in the last week/month could be cool but way too “normal”, not very exciting per se, I’d say.
If we want to enhance the user experience, perhaps we could send a newsletter every so often featuring new guides or relevant information that users could find helpful.
We could introduce a member of the month that features the person with the most resolved/liked posts.
Simultaneously, we could announce the new Questions of the week that are posted to generate more engagement, as I believe these posts are sometimes left unseen (personal experience).
I’d sure like to see a “What We Do” from other departments. Sure, we hear all about Support and the Devs, but not much from the behind-the-scenes staff. Office staff, dare I say Trust & Safety?, and I’m sure there are jobs we never hear about.
First of all, all about technologies, research and implementation.
Then an insight about Cloudflares’s business model, including strategies and future possibilities. I believe I would cry and scream a week or more if I hear tomorrow that Microsoft, Amazon or Google buys Cloudflare. So I would like to know what you guys are doing to escape this horrid possibility. Anyway I think that Cloudflare it’s an amazing adventure and I thank you all for this.
Hmm, the first thought off the topic of my head is solutions of the week. The showcase of threads where a common or unique problem is encountered and how the community of folks eventually solved it. But then not sure how interesting it would be for most folks if it’s an issue that has nothing to do with their situation?
Personally, for me it’s one of the ways I like to learn, reading about other folks problems and how a solution came to be
I’m 67. I can’t know the future but I can see what happens in the global economy. I can’t evaluate the historic importance of Cloudflare, but I believe that the open source model has ALREADY changed the world. I mean from 1970 to today, I mean collective invention. And then some cathedral monsters came to devour the bazaar baby.
That’s the reason why I thought that the newsletter should inform about the business model: to generate engagement. To expand the bazaar…
it should start with a few aims of the newsletter and also about the organization why they are writing this newsletter report.
Activities and their impact on society should be highlighted and information about it should be lucid.
In addition to what has been said already by other folks, I would like to see something like a question/competition for newsletter readers about Cloudflare and the prize was one of the paid services of Cloudflare for free for the winner.
