Newsletter or log?[edit]

I imagine that a newsletter would be distributed before the beginning of a month to alert people to upcoming events. With Wikipedia projects in New York, though, the months events are often held with little notice, so I would not want to suggest that people can read an April newsletter at the end of March then plan their schedule.

Should this be a continually updated log instead of a newsletter? What should this be called?

Perhaps just a calendar? This is about more than events also, because if media is published, or someone wants to release a project on a day, then that should be recorded in some record also. A newsletter would give project summaries or report that an event recording has been released, but a calendar might not do that, and a log may or may not do this.

I am sure that I want a listing by month of all the items which are listed on this outline page. I am only not sure what to call this so as to encourage people to continually update it as they like. It does not seem intuitive to me that people would naturally think to update a newsletter. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:03, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

@Bluerasberry: The organization of this page could see substantial improvement as well. I'm not sure what the business is with redirecting the pages every time a new event comes up, for instance. ResMar 16:15, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
