Dear Wiki Tech Ambassadors,

The Collaboration team[1] is working on various products: Notifications[2], Flow[3] and the new Edit Review improvements project[4]. We have a lot of news concerning these products that may interest people, but that are not fitting Tech News inclusion criteria.[5] We want people to be aware of that's new about our products and I'm questioning various people about the best option we should consider to have.

As tech ambassadors, you have an interesting experience. That's why I'm collecting your feedback.

Is a newsletter format relevant? By newsletter, I mean a message distributed on wiki, like Tech News or the visual editor newsletter[6]. Do you have ideas of a different formats? We may consider to try other things. 

What would be the best message design? Is short sentences like in Tech News good? Or would you prefer to have longer messages with more details? (Longer messages may be more complicated to translate.)

How often would you like to receive news? Tech News has a weekly distribution, VE's newsletter a quarterly one. As one of the main writers of that news publication, I would prefer to have a monthly distribution, but your feedback may be different. Note that we now have a(n experimental) page with most important changes with products we maintain.[7]

Feel free to answer me privately, or by commenting the dedicated Phabricator task.[8] I'm gathering all answers until next Friday (August 5th).

Thanks a lot!
