Re: Checking in

Stephen Melachrinos

You've pointed out a down side of being a sub-group, but I'm still trying to figure out the down side of making it a separate group. The only thing I can think of is that it's marginally more work for members to manage the settings on two groups. 

Here's another reason to make it separate: The reason we set up a special contest group on Yahoo was that not all members wanted the contest emails. I know we could use hashtags to highlight contest-related messages. But if a member doesn't want contest messages, THAT member has to take the action to "opt out" of receiving contest-tagged messages. So it puts the burden on the member who DOESN'T want the messages, not the member who DOES. And even then, if someone forgets to insert #contest in their message subject, then even those who've chosen to opt out will still get the message. (Yes, I know that some of us used to occasionally put a contest message on the regular 070 list, but I think it will be easier to forget a hashtag than it was to mail to the wrong group.)

I vote for a separate group (even though we're not really voting).

Not yet, Mike.

We're still trying to determine the best course of action for that one.  If we make it a subgroup, then to be a member of it, you have to be a member of main group.  That's why I'm still pondering...
