In order to streamline the email/listserve situation for VisCom-ers, we have created a Google Group, “Camp VisCom” (plain VisCom having already been taken.) All the folks who were on the Constant Contact list have been sent invitations to join the Google Group. If you received an invitation to join the Google Group, simply reply to the invitation by clicking on the link in the email. If you wish to invite someone to join the group, I have enabled the Members Invite function so you should be able to do that from the website… or send me that person’s email address and I will send an invitation. This is IMPORTANT because I will be deleting the Constant Contact group (and thereby saving myself $15.95 a month.)
The difficulty will be keeping spammers and opportunistic marketeers from clogging up the email we get with undesirable junk. So… I will post the conditions under which sound practical email list management can work on Google Groups. I will glean those conditions from those lists I am on that function really well.
