I'd like to second Bess.
Calontir has a history of not making bureaucracy and rules and officerships where it isn't needed. This is one of those things where it isn't needed. Keep it unofficial. Have the people who want to run it run it.
It does not replace the newsletter...and frankly, I still prefer the newsletter for information about events and such like (please people put directions either in site fliers or on the event webpage.
This is, as Bess put it, a newspaper. Let it be an unofficial one.

Suggestion : do NOT make this more complicated than it has to be. We
have been running the EK Gazette for a year + now with common sense and
volunteers and not as an official SCA staffed function. The secret
is to not over work your staff and be respectful of whatever guidelines are
established. But please do NOT add to the bureaucracy if you don’t have
to. And it s a newspaper and will function as such as a daily sources of
reactive information. – the kingdom already has the newsletter, THE MEWS,
and this will never replace that.
This took off FAST! Fantastic! I guess now would be a good time to
introduce myself. For those who don't yet know me, my name is Roise
inghean ui Rhauidhrie and I'm the Kingdom Social Media Officer. I've been
keeping tabs on this digital news letter idea and I think it's brilliant.
There is lots to discuss as to where in the Kingdom Law this will fall and I
look forward to discussing this and other ideas with everyone at the meetings at
Kris Kinder and 12th Night! I look forward to this exciting idea!
