Editorial - Thursday, April 3: Keep your ideas coming

EVERY Monday we do a Facebook call-out asking people what they would like to see in The Daily Examiner.

We get some really great, constructive answers that help us when we plan the paper each day.

The more specific the answers, the better and easier it is to figure out what we should be including.

This Monday, for example, we had some good ones - like Trent Dickson's suggestions for some fishing tips from Fish of the Week success story Nick Gleeson. Lynette Eggins asked for more coverage of the local people connected to the Bentley blockade protests which then made it into yesterday's edition. Raelene Clarke gave a little more of an overview of what she wanted, including more local opinion and human stories, which was also helpful.

So thanks, guys - keep the suggestions coming.

Just telling us you want more news, better stories or a bigger paper doesn't really help. Let us know what news is to you - is it crime, council, events or what local identities have been up to? Tell us what you mean by better stories - what specifically you think is a better story. If you think we are falling short give us a specific example so we can work on it.

All of this information helps us put together the paper you want to read. And of course if you don't want to suggest it over Facebook you can still let us know in plenty of other ways - write a letter, email, pick up the phone or drop in to the office.
