New Release Mailing List

New Release Mailing List

Postby higherlimits » Wed Mar 17, 2010 5:35 pm

As per request from Trickster a new usergroup has been created that will allow people here to join a new release mailing list.

How this will work is you sign up for the group and then anytime something goes on sale (like the posters yesterday) the first person to notice will send a PM to the group to let everyone know.


How to Join the group:

Click on "User Control Panel" at the top left of the page

Click on the "Usergroups" tab

Click the bubble beside "Releases"

Click "submit" after ensuring that the drop down menu says "Join selected"



How to send a message to the group:

Go through the steps to send a PM as normal.

Instead of typing in a member name, click on "Releases" on the right side of the page in the "Groups" box.

Hit Submit


Rules:
Put as much of the message in the title of the PM so that people don't need to actually come here and can instead just go straight to wherever the sale is. ie. "UGWNL Poster is on sale at Kung Fu"

Don't hit "Reply All" when sending a reply to the original sender unless you have an important note to make.

Don't send messages to the group unless there is a new surprise that is time sensitive. If something is being released in a week we don't need to use the mailing list, just make up a new topic.

Don't PM about something for which a PM has already gone out. We don't need 10 people messaging about the same thing. Of course it's possible for two or more people to PM at the same time and that's fine, just don't spam.

Of course Panos would suggest something so practical. He's been my savior on a number of occasions. Many thanks!

Why? It was clearly marked as a test at the bottom of the PM

Well it's a shitty thing to do and it ruins the reputation of the site (if we have any reputation..)

Did I miss something - never got the release message - as I wasn't subscribed at the time



I was messing around and put in a release message Icky Thump 12" up at Kung Fu
