I was having a discussion at the weekend with some of the members who attended Jap Show.
Although the event had been organised on the forum since October 2018, there are some members who only pop onto the forum occasionally, just to see what's going on and will not check through every section to see what is going on. So, to ensure that they were kept up to date with the goings on in the club, they asked if we could send out emails to everyone with updates as to what events we are attending, what meets have been organised, and anything else that they might want to get involved with.

The forum comes with the ability to be able to MASS EMAIL members. This means we can send out an email to everyone letting them know that certain events are coming up and that certain things are happening, especially when we are looking for member feedback regarding whatever is going on.

We are now going to start using this feature more often to ensure that members are not missing out on events or finding out when it's too late. This should help to ensure that members who do want to be involved with events and want to keep up to date with the forum, have the opportunity to do so without checking into the forum daily and searching for important threads themselves.

The instructions below are how to TURN OFF EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS, but if you are NOT GETTING THEM and you WANT to get them, you can follow these and just ensure that the boxes are ticked rather than unticked.

If you untick the top box "Receive news and update emails" you will NOT RECEIVE any mass emails sent out from the forum. This means that you are likely to miss out on anything we think members want to hear about, but if you are only within the club to get answers to your questions and don't want to join in with the social side and don't want to know about club updates, then this is the option for you. No one can see what you have selected in your preferences, so it is 100% your choice as to what you want to do. This option will also prevent you from getting emails about members replying to watched threads etc, it pretty much cuts out all of the emails you'll receive except for the below:

If you untick the bottom box "Receive email when a new conservation message is received" then you will not get an email if someone starts a private conversation with you on the forum. This second option will still allow you to receive mass emails sent from the forum, unless you have unticked that box as well.

So if you don't want to receive ANY emails from the board, untick BOTH boxes.

The final and most important step here to make sure you hit SAVE once you have updated your preferences. You'll find the button at the bottom of your screen.

If you are at the point of already receiving an email, it will look something like this (but with different content)

Please note the link in the email to Unsubscribe. All you need to do is press the link. This will divert you straight to the forum and give you 2 options,

Unsubscribing from emails will remove you from the mailing list so that you do not receive any mass email communications sent out from the forum.
Stopping all emails will turn off 100% of all email notifications you get from the forum.

Yeah, but you're on the forum a lot mate, so you will see it when it gets commented on. Those who don't frequent Forum or Facebook often will miss it.

As for opting in/out of club communication, there is a check box when you register to be able to do this. It's ticked as default as we assume that people joining the club want to hear from us. Also MOST people signing WILL want to. The minority of people that don't want the communication have the option at that point to turn them off.

From an admin point of view, it's much better to have people included by default and then have them remove themselves, than add no one at all and ask them to do it themselves. It's just a general rule of thumb that more people are likely to manually OPT OUT of something they don't want than to OPT IN to something they do want.

I fully support this - thanks team!

I only joined the forum recently (after purchasing my first Elgrand) and only 'stumpled' on the events by chance and therefore an email would be better received. Maybe the 'email' could also be sent to all new members so they could 'catch-up'?
