What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

Each Stack Exchange site has a weekly email newsletter.

What is in the newsletter? Who composes them and selects what is included?

This question is motivated by the fact there is nothing at all in the common FAQ's or the FAQ for StackExchange Sites about newsletters. Also, because I was under a misapprehension for a long time about whether there was moderator involvement. See also a related question about how to subscribe. –  Oddthinking Feb 8 '12 at 12:48
    
Thanks @N.N. That reference is NOT a FAQ, nor referenced in the FAQ for StackExchange Sites. That suggests either (a) an answer should be built here based on that reference (and promoted to a FAQ entry), or (b) that question should be simplified into a FAQ format. –  Oddthinking Feb 8 '12 at 12:50
    
@Oddthinking N.N. didn't vote to close as a duplicate, but was just pointing out a related item. –  Andrew's a Unitato Feb 8 '12 at 13:28
    
@Andrew, understood. I am thankful to N.N for the contribution, and I decided that (a) was the best way forward. My suggested answer includes the link N.N provided. –  Oddthinking Feb 8 '12 at 13:34

The newsletter is mailed out weekly to users who have opted-in.

It includes a briefly summary of:

  • The Top New Questions of the week.
  • Some selected highlight questions from previous weeks.
  • Some selected unanswered questions from the past.

These are all automatically selected by the Stack Exchange system.

They may also occasionally contain important announcements from Stack Exchange staff and moderators.

Interested? Learn how to subscribe, and see a sample newsletter.

More information is available from the initial announcement.

Am I right in saying mods can include important announcements? Are these the same as system messages? –  Oddthinking Feb 8 '12 at 13:23
