This page is for items related to the GO news feed. The news feed is developed by the WPWG and the news group (formerly the newsletter WG) is responsible for the content.

News SOP

We have one news WG member on duty at any one time (2 months on - see News_rota). That person should:

  1. Keep an eye on the news queue, see if there's anything there that needs looking over and publishing.
    • After checking an article, fixing formatting etc the post should be published, making sure the 'Announce this post on Twitter' box is checked. After publishing, check the post has been propagated to the RSS feed, the GO front page and Twitter.
  2. Keep an eye out for any interesting news that you think should be posted (much of the stuff on gofriends for example) and add it.
  3. Commission an in-depth/review piece from someone - there are some ideas here:
