Why is the newsletter sent in the middle of the week on Tuesday?

According to this answer,

* we searched Google for "best day of week to send email newsletter" and Tuesday seemed popular

Can we change this to some other day?

I don't think we can: I think the algorithm is hard-coded and not user-configurable nor site-configurable.

There was at the time a request to implement an option like that, but it wasn't a popular request (attracting only 5 up-votes and 5 down-votes), and so that request now has the status-declined tag.


FWIW that was apparently somewhat of a relief to the person who might have had to help implement that feature, who commented,

phew, less work for me :)

I think that in general it's difficult to persuade Stack Exchange to change the current software.

One example is this feature request which has 30 up-votes but which so far as we know is not scheduled for implementation.

There are currently 19000 feature requests of which 2000 have been completed and 1000 declined.

  • That answer seems oriented for marketing. This is a sangha and i think a more appropriate day would be the weekend so that people can read and write better replies.

  • I updated my answer: I don't think we have the ability to configure it.

  • That freaking sucks. But then again I can't think of any newsletter where you can choose the day to receive the digest.
