When you prompt the system in regard to adding a document, it opens a new page with three posibilities:
Upload a new document
Add a link
Create a document.
I added over 1400 documents, and every time I do it, all my followers receive a message about it and have the opportunity to study it, comment on it and learn new information.
I realized that when I "create a document" it doesn't receive the same attention of being "publisized", and therefore my followeres don't learn about it.
I would like to hear your opinions wether giving it the same treatment as newly uploaded documents is warranted, and if the answer is positive, as I hope and suspect, then one of our curators should bring it up with the right people.
If it hasn't been added, you could do a post in the Feature Requests. Then we could give it a thumbs up.
