I feel that we need to come up with more relevant story ideas. I think we as a staff come up with good ideas, but in the end we don't follow through with them. I feel that if we find more information and get good quotes our stories will get a lot better.
Another improvement we could make would be to make sure we get our stuff done on time for the final deadline. When writers miss the final deadline it holds everybody else up that is on staff. By missing deadlines it is hard to design a page if half of its content is missing. I think we need to communicate more with writers to gauge where they are at in the writing process and help them if needed.
The last improvement we could make would be to do a better job of editing. Lately we have been publishing stupid mistakes that could be easily fixed. My solution would be to spend more time on editing and make sure that people are really looking closely at each article or page.
