Lightbulb Add a meaningful title / Subject line to new Community Bulletin Board & Archives


I noticed the # of views continues to drop each month. A useful Subj line that summarizes new topics included in the post may help.
Why read if all show same title??

I get my community bulletins via email- perhaps more people are subscribing and not bothering with the forum?

While "LQ community bulletin" is a fairly generic title, it works for email because you get them every two weeks or so (?)

The bulletins cover a lot of ground, making a summary a large subject line- maybe too large.

just some thoughts...

The archive is really meant to be more for posterity than anything else. The reason the newer ones have less reads is simply because they are newer - you can see a very linear line regarding reads vs. age. Thanks for the feedback.
