Here's the scoop on the ADSR Mail List

Hi! This is Ernie again.

There have been a few posts already about the ADSR mail list, and the concern about email overload. I can understand that, but not being an ADSR participant I had no idea what you were talking about! Thanks to a post by Bonnie in the forum, I was able to check out the ADSR mail list, and came up with the following conclusions:

1. Theresa subscribed everyone in the race to the list. This is how you will learn of challenge prizes.

2. Subscription is voluntary. You do not need to subscribe to this list. That being said, this is how you will learn of your challenge prizes. So you may want to be subscribed.

3. ANYONE on the list can send email to the entire list. As near as I can tell, this can not be changed. PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING THIS MAIL LIST TO SEND EMAIL IF YOUR NAME IS NOT THERESA HERNANDEZ! :)

4. Under the "Subscribing to Amazingdigiracers" section, the last item prior to clicking the "Subscribe" button is this selection:

Would you like to receive list mail batched in a daily digest? No Yes

The default selection is "No". By changing your selection to "Yes" and re-subscribing, you will get one email per day, and this email will be a list of all emails sent during the day. You can then scan the subject lines and look for the "important" emails as opposed to the "I'm ready to party!" emails (for those that missed that little note above).

Hopefully, this will help you manage your influx of ADRS race related emails. The whole idea of the race is to have some fun, not create additional stress! If you wish to unsubscribe, you certainly may, but I would think the more prudent selection might be to go the way of the daily digest. But that's just me.

Theresa is sending out an email that says something like "Important: Please Read", asking participants not to use this mail list. That should be going out soon.
