Why doesn't the "Pokémon news from Bulbanews" on the Bulbapedia home page stay current and full anymore?

Admittedly, I am not as active on Bulbapedia or these forums nearly as much as I used to be, so I apologize if there has been a change that I am out of the loop on.

I remember, for the longest time, if I went to the homepage of Bulbapedia, the section titled "Pokémon news from Bulbanews" would be filled with headlines of various Pokémon related news stories. However, ever since I have started coming back to Bulbapedia (about a year now), I am lucky to see 3 links in the section, and they will stay the exact same for months and then be erased and replaced with a different article title, where it will begin to stay for months on end.

Why does this section not stay current anymore? And, why is it that when there is the extremely (like shiny pokemon rare) time that it finally gets a new article, instead of bumping older articles down a row like it used to, it outright replaces the old article headline(s)?

Like about a week ago, there were 2-3 articles that had been there ever since end of December/Early January, but as of February 27th (2 nearly 3 months later), those article titles have been erased and replaced with the only one that is there now talking about "New Mythical Pokémon Zarude revealed", where I bet will remain the ONLY article there until May or so, where it will be removed in favor of what happens to be current then.

If there's a setting that I need to change on my end to resolve this if this is a glitch, I am open to suggestions! I know this has nothing to do with ad blockers because I do not use them on Bulbapedia

I believe Bulbanews articles are manually created. They're not automatic. So it really does depend on how busy the volunteers that run the system are.

How could news articles be automatically generated?

If it is a manually curated list, then that answers my question. It makes perfect sense now. Thank you!
