Newsletter Issue

Post by eskallon on April 9th 2012, 10:00 pm

Hiya everyone,

I today decided that we needed some form of newsletter to attract both inactive/old and current users to the forums to show them the changes and new forum stuff. So I wrote a newsletter and sent it using the appropriate settings in the admin panel. However after asking other members about it on our teamspeak, it seems that some people didn't receive it. I can find no links between those that did and those that didn't. I tried putting everyone in a group and resending- but still nothing.

I was hoping someone here could investigate or help me. Heres the links to the forum and the newsletter coding:

Code:

<td> Dear Chimerical Crafters Member, <br>
Welcome to the april newsletter. First off, on behalf of all the staff, I would like to wish you a Happy Easter filled with lots of chocolate goodies. This month we have undergone a few changes and we hope that you will continue to visit and enjoy both the server and the forums.<br>
<br>
Our server owner, Bilbo, is looking for some donations to help fund the costs to raise the server slots and make the server a better place for us all to play on. Not only will the money go towards slots, this would also be decreasing lag. If you can spare anything at all, he would be most grateful. You can donate <a href="https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=mvPvlk__NvHWmVSsjH7Hn6EtiQA3Ac3fNiljY6HKMe4PJw5Xpvj0ESBLv5e&dispatch=5885d80a13c0db1f8e263663d3faee8dcbcd55a50598f04d34b4bf5056870803"> via Paypal</a>.

For the past two weeks, we have been having fun on a friday night playing adventure maps together. The first week consisted of a Super Hostile map and this friday just gone, we played a map called <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OC7a2uk_4qY">"The Survival Games"</a>. The Map was very popular and all the slots were filled with players. The game consisted of all the players grabbing some equipment and running off to survive, not only from the mobs and danger of starvation. But also each other, it was a fight to the death, with only one winner. Not only was it a fun map, but it was well built and a community enhancing night. If you'd like to play another fun-filled map next week then just be on our teamspeak between 6pm GMT and 9pm GMT and we would love to see you there.

Could it be that some members have check the no box in their profiles to receive newsletters?

Ah correct you are, it seems you are right about that. I have had a look through some profiles on the admin panel.

Is there a way to turn this so they are forced to have the newsletter, its a small community of gamers and when a member signs up, I doubt they will have an issue. I am even adding it to the rules that they agree to accept them when they sign up?

all you can do is change it in a members profile through admin panel.
But then they can always change it back.
If you was using punbb or phpbb2 then you can just remove the whole option out of the template, But i am not sure of a way of doing it with phpbb3

Okay thanks guys, like I said, its a small community and when someone signs up I will just set it individually in the control panel.

Thanks for the help, you guys always seem to know what to do. Very Happy
