One measure of the success of GetTheData.org is the percentage of questions which are answered or commented on. In order to increase the odds of individuals answering question, they may like to know when new questions arrive. Other than suggesting people use an RSS Reader, how might we best encourage subscriptions to the new questions feed?

One option is to follow @dataquestions on Twitter. It is an unofficial automatic tweeter using the GetTheData.org RSS Feed to share data related questions on Twitter. Credits: @davidpidsley @psychemedia @rufuspollock

I still like e-mail for some things. Any way to get a daily or weekly summary of new questions on the site?

We could add this underneath the "Use Twitter to track new questions: @dataquestions" section.
