    Lightwave News section abandoned? Last post fre 26 Jan 2018

    Well..keeping a vibrant newsfeed seem to have been put on hold...

    Last post Friday 26 jan 2018, thats 1 year, 8 months, 15 days.
    Previously during 2017-2018, there were several posts during that timerange, but then ...zippo.

    Just wondering if there is no staff that can keep it going? or is it lacking material? or is it a change of direction for what newtek choose to focus on? Maybe chuck can jump in and clarify a bit.
    I think it Just doesnīt look good with reference to marketing and doing an effort to put up a good current status by not maintaining a certain frequence of covering some news articles regarding Lightwave or news around studios, third party developers etc

    That said..Great job on updating lightwave itself, maybe that is where the effort goes? or facebook? and no time left to actually put up something interesting on the Lightwave3d.com main news feed?

    Wise choice in my opinion.  

    ...that section wasn't exactly overly active.

    Not sure about that, I rather go to that section than facebook, and it is up there on the very frontpage of the lightwave site, if it is abondoned, they should link it to facebook instead within that menu, even if they have their tiny icon links for that as well.
    And would potentional clients go to the lightwave site and check for news..and then see nothing, or will they go directly to facebook and see what is new there?

    Itīs their main page of Lightwave and main page of news, seems destructive to just have it non active for almost two years, I would actually think it would be better to just remove it to archives, and just facebook link it, somehow.

    but when I think of it...I believe I have shouted out about this previously, and I think I got some kind of response of that facebook is where it is at, so how they choose to run it and keep it abandoned from their main lightwave news page, I can not do much about it other than saying how I perceive it as bad in the marketing perspective from my point of views, I could of course be wrong..others can and will do their judgements as they see fit.

    I forgot, we do have this.,.
    https://www.lightwave3d.com/newsletters/

    Which is different from this..
    https://www.lightwave3d.com/news/

    Which is different from this..
    https://www.facebook.com/LightWave3D

    Perhaps a bit of cleaning up, and unifying it a bit better, that means on the https://www.lightwave3d.com/news/ page...simply link to facebook and the newsletters rather than having it as it is now with only very old posts.
    Or remove it completely, archive old news and put up facebook in front with the newsletters.

    The newsletters is hidden under community...and when you look for news about lightwave ..logicly you should go to the newspage where today unfortunately...nothing is updated, nor linked to the other pages.

    I forgot about that one, but as you also seem to have discovered, they put updates and news in various places, and sure..the blog may be more related to actual lightwave updates or coming topics, but I think it would be wise to gather all that stuff, facebook, newsletter, news, blog...within the main page news, to many scattered social media stuff..and it may end up being scattered by the wind to far distant places hard to find..if I should draw it harschly, just to scare newtek to at least try and get it all more focused
