| What about "theheadlines"  ?   ;)
| Lost in the mass of email .. someone suggested or made a point of saying
| something along the lines that perhaps all thelist and/or all of the
| weo members could be sent this message.
| While a good idea in principal (principle??), let's think about it a bit
| more.  Do we really want to send an unsolicited email to all of weo
| I'd say no .. and prefer that those that wish to be subscribed do so on
| their own.  How can we advertise this?  Couple of ways:
| * new article to Community News category,
| * add to user page [both sign up and edit]  (in fact links to all the
| should be provided on the user update page, not just a link to thelist -
| more cross-promotion of evolt.org),
| * add to l.e.o. as another list one can subscribe to if they wish,
| * and/or  some other idea(s) incorporated in the new IA.
| All of that said, I would prefer if the announcements still went to
| Can thelist just be subscribed to theheadlines (or thearticles)?
| My two cents,
| Michele
| | Yup; thearticles should be just that, a 'new article' announcement
| service.
| | We've discussed a newsletter, which could perhaps include new articles,
| but
| | should be so much more.
