How about an interview-section in the DE daily? (interviews conductible via IM or actually played out) Interviews about specific current issues or generalities would obviously fuel rp in various ways. Now while I'd love to do that myself I'm afraid I don't know DE, its ongoing stories etc. well enough.
So throwing the idea out there for someone to pick it up.
Btw. The possibility to comment the articles would be very desirable: it incentivizes contributors, for example.
