Some time ago, the gotop admin added an option on the member control panel to opt out of receiving mass mailings. Many of you joined so long ago, that you probably didn't even know such an option was available to you. I do understand why the gotop people did this, as they had some TopList admins emailing sales promotions and other such SPAM to their members. I have never used the BLOG VILLAGE email list for my own personal gain, and don't intend to in the future.
I do send out emails from time to time, in an effort to make members aware of what they need to do to maintain membership in our Village, and to announce community activities, such as upcoming Carnivals and the new Forum and Chat. I hope I have not made a pest of myself ;).
It is very inconvenient for me, when I do need to contact a group of members with the same problem, if I have to email each one separately, because they have opted out of mass mailings. Right now there are about 50 members that I cannot reach with a mass mailing.
So, this morning, I sent an individual email to each of those Villagers who had opted out, asking them to please change that option, so they can receive the mass emails. If they decide that they do not want to be bothered with the mass emails at a later date, they can always opt out at that time. I am hoping that the vast majority of those who are currently opting out will understand my situation, and make the change in their preferences.
