    Hi guys,

    I'd like to find out how often would you like to receive our newsletter. Added a poll with the various options.

    Appreciate the feedback! :eek:


    P.S: If you haven't sign up to our newsletter, you can do it here.

    Hey Cyrus,

    it appears your poll is broken, i'm missing the option for daily? ;)
    Also is this about the current newsletter, of about a newsletter for when you go live? When you go live once every two weeks is fine with me.

    I know that after launch we won't have weekly storyline updates, but I'm sure there will be plenty of in-game activity to report on, so I think every other week would work just fine. :)

    I think that after launch every 2 weeks would be cool.

    Fortnightly is good for after launch, for that matter even less often if the forum and facebook/twitter etc is all utilized fully to share important news etc. I think you do a great job of that and will continue to cover all the bases :) (ps, has it really been five months? I agree, sure has flown)

    I voted weekly because even if there isn't any real news, it would be nice to continue to hear something each week.

    I think there can't be set an amount on them. A newsletter should be send if anything interesting is to be said. If nothing new is happening I see no reason for a newsletter. So it can be every week if new stuff happens every week or once every 3 months if nothing new is happening. A newsletter is there to offer us news if there is none there is no need for one.

    I think similar to Razer - if there is something happening make a news about it. No point to post about nothing. as well no point to wait fixed amount of time to inform about something interesting.

    During big events I think it should be daily or even few times a day, updating us about situation. Something like briefings.

    Probably at the beginning would be more often due to discoveries but I hope it would be quite often afterward also *fingers x'ed* ;)

    I think the answer is quite simple. Write us a newsletter when there are news to present. Don't waste your time with writing a newsletter every week just to be able to send out a "news"letter. And don't waste our time with reading a "news"letter without news in it.
    So make sure to write one when there is something exiting going on with Arkadia which people reading your Email shouldn't miss.
    If that is the case every week then go for it! However if it isn't then please don't.

    I'm with these guys. ...well, unless your going to having some awesome weekly events and storyline development on a set schedule then it is really unnecessary.

    if it's any more frequent than monthly, the quality will certainly suffer.

    for everyday reminders, these forums have a calendar function that is almost always underutilized.

    I just need a newsletter when gear will be dropping again i.e. loot will change to something other than oils and hides. That is the only thing that would get me really excited (in other words: depositing) again. :)

    But I voted "monthly". If you guys have something "new" to say that is ^^

    This is my opinion too. A newsletter can actually have a negative effect and be annoying if it appears too often, if the news are not news :)

    I personally don't think about the time inbetween, if I feel the newsletter has a purpose when I recieve it. I only think about it, if I feel it's 'overkill' and has nothing to tell me.

    Hi Guys,

    Thank you for all your input. I'll be taking in your feedback and work out how best the newsletter can work in tandem with the other social media platforms.

    Currently, what I'm contemplating to do after reading your posts is to:

    (a) Have a newsletter coming out in a fixed period of time, say fortnightly, with updates on the news and happenings during those 2 weeks.

    (b) Use the forum and website as well as other social media platforms to inform you of any news and happenings, first hand.

    What do you think?
