    Anyone else noticed that there has been a lack of Dovetail Live Articles posted on TS2020 content the past few weeks? Kind of odd, especially with today's announcement of a new route from Rivet Games, yet there is still isn't an article posted here on the forums (Usually there's an article for up and coming routes).

    Other releases that also never got an article.

    Yes I yo have noticed a lack of announcements not being posted to the forums as well. In fact I would like to thank you for sharing the post of the Norfolk Southern Loco pack. I guess they expect everyone to get a twitter and/or Facebook account as well, which I would never have anytime to play I would be spending to much of my free play time having to read things scattered all over the place.

    Maybe it's due to the lockdown?

    Except this was happening before the lockdowns were in place, as well as we had that one article for the Clinchfield route last week.

    This also happened on the NS loco pack as well, it was you who let us know they just assume everyone has a Twitter or Facebook acct.

    I have found information on new releases by Email from DTG and other providers like Just Trains and Virtual Railroads
    If you don't sign up then you don't find out

    Now we have the mystery of the non-posted articles.

    Let's remember that the office is probably shut and they are working remotely. So therefore, they may not have ready access to DTG Live. Once in a while they'll get something there that they feel is big (Battle for Sherman Hill, anyone?), but they can easily log into the Twitter account and post. I don't really hop on Twitter (or especially Facebook) much anymore, myself, so just refresh the DLC page periodically to see new releases.

    The issue here is not because they're working remotely as this has been going on before the pandemic hit, it has been hit and miss of new coming soon articles not being posted here in the forums. Not everyone has a twitter and/or facebook account we rely on articles being posted here.

    Wait. Not everyone has a Twitter or Facebook? I was led to believe everyone had one... :)

    But remember that changes in office operation do cause holes. This is one of the holes. It will likely be tended to sooner or later.
