    I just thought we should start a new tradition of updating the members whenever we update the guidelines.

    I used to read the rules page, monthly. But, even with that, I could be thirty days behind anything new.

    So now, whenever we make any additions, subtractions, or variations to existing guidelines, we'll Announce it.

    Ah, good stuff.

    Both the addition and the updates are both great ideas.

    You mean you didn't before? I mean...excellent idea.

    Suggestion: if you put a "Last revised" date at the top of the Rules page, people won't have to read the whole page to see if anything has changed. Also, they'll know if they should look for changes instead of reading the page and possibly missing updates because they didn't know if there were any.
