"Popular contents" newsletters

default "Popular contents" newsletters

Post by Chilli-head on 27th February 2018, 9:50 pm

I see that the forum has started to send out these e-mails of recent threads automatically.

This is a new feature I only just found out about. It will apparently do this every fortnight. We can choose to turn the feature on and off at the moment, no finer control.

Do we like them ? Plus side is it has brought Hairyloon back in, and AndyM has been in touch in response. Downsides are that it might irritate some inactive members enough to leave. Not that, if they are inactive, it will make much difference to the forum. Providing they don't insist on all their posts being deleted, which is a laborious nightmare !

Opinions ?

It was quite a surprise, CH. Not a lot of point for those of use who visit regularly but if it entices a few people back in, then that's a bonus.
As for annoying people, we all get so much 'stuff' these days that most of us are used to hitting 'unsubscribe' and leaving it at that.

If ex-members want their posts deleted, surely they can do it themselves.

Anyway, what emails? I haven't had any.

Odd isn't it.  Hairlyloon mentioned an e-mail reminder, which puzzled me as I haven't sent any, and the only automatic ones I think are if you watch a topic.  And maybe a birthday greeting if you've supplied your date of birth (?).

I got the same one yesterday, a couple of days after HL.  So seems they don't all come out together.  You may get it soon. Editied to add: Or you can see it online:

I think I'll leave the auto newsletters on for a bit and see what occurs.  If some really don't like it, the e-mail has links to unsubscribe from the newsletter, or to take you to the e-mail notifications preferences settings.  I don't think you can actually unsubscribe or leave the forum as such for yourself. Administrators can deactivate members so that they get no communications and can't log in, but their posts remain in their name.  Or Admin can delete the user, in which case their posts appear attributed to "Guest".  To delete all their posts is a tedious one-by-one job, and mucks up all the topics the posts were in.

I've seen that happen once, and agree that it stops threads reading smoothly and making sense. It would probably only happen in extreme circumstances.

The one thing I noticed is that the newsletter emails come with a reply-to address that didn't work. I've fixed that, I hope.

Ploshkin et al who haven't received a n email yet - is the email address in your profile current ?

There are also settings to turn off newsletters and "popular contents" in your profile. It does look like they don't all go out at once though.
