The daily digest will be returning shortly. I have added a thread that discusses that here. It should launch in a few days and daily digest will once again be reactivated
Also, there was extensive discussion about the old format vs the new format for Orchid. That thread is here, and the discussion was quite involved. The short version is, no we have no intention of returning to the old format. If there are specific features, functionality, or other ideas you have to improve this format, kindly post them in a new thread under "Site Feedback" - that is the purpose of this category - so we can improve the experience continually.
