New Digest E-mail Format

Postby GeoffSchultz » Sat Dec 20, 2008 8:17 pm

Personally, I hated the format of the e-mail digest as I thought that they were hard to read. So, this afternoon I sat a down and figured out how they were formatted and made changes. I think that you'll find the new digests much easier to read.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Geoff,

I never used the email format of the Yahoo site. I also find that system too chaotic; people putting new subjects into existing threads just because they are too lazy or too ignorant to log on to the site and start a new thread. How are you going to prevent the same thing happening here if you allow email digests? Next thing you know is again having discussions about engine bearings in a thread that started about single line reefing solutions.

The digest provides a daily/weekly e-mail with the contents of the new posts. It doesn't allow you to post via e-mail.

If you haven't subscribed to the digests, I strongly suggest that you try it. To do this, click on the "User Control Panel", which is located near the top of this screen and then click on "Digests" (which is located on the left side if you're using the default subsilver skin or along the top if you selected the prosilver skin). The choose what type of digest that you want and when you want it delivered. Click "submit" and you're done.

Geoff,

I'll try it. And a good thing you cannot post via the email digests!
