What do we have for the Monday update? So far I have:

Short list on my side. Whatchagot?

Something to think about, which you and Denise may have already considered - fandom is going to be very noisy about Yuletide in a week or two's time. Is there any non-fandom stuff on DW worth promoting at the same time, so DW doesn't look too fannish?

Also, is it worth adding another tag to the Latest Posts feed for yuletide?

I vote in favour of a tag for Yuletide, too! It'll make it so much easier to keep track of other people's recs :)

If we codepush for the promo, we shoudl also mention gradation-vertical (new site scheme) going live: it's white-on-black, so people with light sensitivity/migraine issues might prefer it.

The documentation clean up would be nice to ask about, see if there's anything that users have noticed that is missing.

I would appreciate if you could let everyone know that support@ works now. I wrote a little blurb-y post here: http://dw-support.dreamwidth.org/1631.html

ETA: We also put up a new Support privs request post here: http://dw-support-training.dreamwidth.org/11771.html

Also, DW is powered by disco.

* ditto on the docs scrub thing, ask people to point out things that are undocumented/underdocumented for me to fix

* codepush, so, stuff's live, report bugs, blah. mostly bugfixes this round, but it includes fixes for the big and noticeable ones from last push

* if we're going to start purging in january, it'd be good to mention now

* um. there's something else i know I wanted to mention, but i don't remember. heh.
