I’m giving very serious thought to changing my “update without notice” policy. Something like over 95% of the time, I post my updates on the updates page so people will know about them. I only update without a notice in a tiny minority of cases where the update is very minor and unimportant — like, say, if I add someone’s middle name.
I’m wondering if I ought to change that. Especially given the size of Charley nowadays, and how the many small updates (like, say, an AP) crowd out more substantial updates where I flesh out the story of the MP and add multiple paragraphs of information.
On the other hand, I know many people use Charley to identify bodies, and a small detail can catch their eye and their memory and lead to a match. For those people, updating without notice would make Charley a lot less useful, I should think.
So I’m not sure. I just know that doing more updating without notice would save me a lot of time and I could devote more attention to the case histories, which is Charley’s specialty.
