Well, or maybe not that new news, everything burning under your nails is definitely better to take directly to the people or the white board in the service building. And that is also, where you best can get informed, by asking others and looking at the white board from now and then (and that is easy, as you pass it every time you get your meals).
However, both the memory of people (or, if you want, the “gathered knowledge of people present in town”) and the capacity of the white board are limited1). Consider this as a kind of archive of (more or less) archiving-worthy news then.
Definitely a good idea is to write news around the homepage here, since they are of little help when written on the white board.
9.9.2013 – The date for the autumn-party has been settled to 21. Sept., and the motto will be “red light district”. If there is sufficient interest, an extra-flight will be set up. Contact the Kings Bay reception if you'd like to join.
22.8.2013 – But first is autumn. Sign up for the autumn-party-committee now. Find a date, a topic and have fun. There is a signup-form at the white-board.
12.4.2013 – The new homepage is an attempt to gather as much as possible information around the Velferden in Ny-Ålesund. Its wiki-concept is supposed to make it easy for anyone to contribute, all you need is to register (your data will not be sold to anyone and is only stored on the server to allow you to authenticate yourself).
