As may or may not be obvious, some of the restructuring includes moving the News off the Front Page. With that change, I may no longer Regularly address the community from the perspective of announcing the stories... instead, I will post News when there is relevant news to share. That may be daily... weekly... or you may not get posts from me with some time between them. I will, of course, still be active in the forums.... just taking less time putting together news announcements that most people were skipping over anyway.
On the bright side, now that its not on the Front Page... maybe some of the other authors will make News posts instead of just announcements in the forums. We'll see...
As far as knowing what new story has been released on a given day? Well... looking at the "Newest..." lists in the sidebars may help. Or you can just click straight over to "Read Stories" where the newest stuff should always be at the top of the blog style format.
On top of those existing methods, I hope to add a little active display or coloring or font size... something... that is especially visible for the first week or two of a new story's life on the site. I'm not sure 'what' exactly that will be yet or how to achieve it... but it's something in the plans.
