Community bulletin might contain various items which are "network-wide". I mean blog posts and featured questions from Meta Stack Exchange.1 Depending on the site, some of them might be less interesting to the users of the specific site.
- They might be about issue unrelated to the site. (For example, the recent announcement that 29 sites are no longer in beta - this is probably less interesting for users of graduated sites.)
- Some of them are added mainly with intention of getting some aspect of SE better known or maybe some entertainment value (such as introducing a new employee) and are not of big importance to the local community.
- Sometimes there might be several important issues being discussed on a per-site-meta at the same time, in such cases the posts from Meta Stack Exchange might take attention from them. (Although posts from Meta Stack Exchange actually cannot push local posts from the community bulletin,2 the fact that they are displayed at the top make them more noticeable and takes some attention away from the "local" hot meta posts.)
Proposal. Add a possibility for the moderators to remove blog posts or hot Meta Stack Exchange question from the "local" community bulletin (i.e, on a per-site basis).
1Unless I missed something, other types of entries in the community bulletin have some relation to the site on which they are displayed: What criteria are used to select the links that appear in the community bulletin sidebar block?
2Quote from the above post (current revision): "Additionally, up to two featured posts from Meta Stack Exchange will appear in the community bulletins of all main sites (but no child meta sites). These are also labeled "meta". Note that these will appear in addition to all of the other stuff listed above, so the list of community bulletin posts might appear longer than usual, depending on the individual site circumstances."
