moderated Re: web-based questionnaire for restricted groups a pressing issue #suggestion
I don't mean to hijack this thread about web-based questionnaires but it seems appropriate to mention that a simpler solution for obtaining info from potential subscribers would be to allow comments to be passed to owners via the +subscribe email address. That is how YG worked. I suspect some former yahoo users do include comments in their subscribe email but there is no indication to them that their comments go nowhere.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Lacking comments in the subscribe email we have to resort to overly complicated instructions on our group page to obtain required info. Example:
"Send an empty email to the +subscribe address and we will contact you with a request for the required info. Alternatively, send the required info to +owners address and we will send you an invitation which you will then need to respond to in order to become a subscriber."
It would be so much easier to simply state:
"Send required info to XXXfirstname.lastname@example.org."
I realize the premium account allows direct add but that still leaves the problem of comments in subscribe emails being ignored and having to engage in multiple email exchanges in order to process required info.
