moderated Invitation Message

Another loud voice for a completely customizable invitation letter. The current one is redundant and makes no sense to many people I invite. Most of them are people who have been unsubscribed for spam. They pay no attention to the message because they know they haven’t unsubscribed. They consider the message to be spam!

This is what the letter that just went out with my letter in the middle instead of replacing the default. [Name] [Invitee Email Address] are also not filling in. I highlighted my invitation.

The [Name] and [Invite Email Address] were never meant to symbolize variables that someone could use; they're just placeholders for the boilerplate that gets sent.

The one difference between the invite email and the other member notices is that we have a link in there that is custom to each invite to accept the invite. Where would that go if I eliminated the boilerplate?

[Name] and [Invite Email Address]

If they are in the boilerplate, can’t be deleted, and aren’t filled in when the invite is sent, why are they there if they don’t fill in? I copied into my initial query an invitation that was sent to one of my test email addresses.

The one difference between the invite email and the other member notices is that we have a link in there that is custom to each invite to accept the invite. Where would that go if I eliminated the boilerplate?
Could the link be the only thing that is entered when a custom invite is used?
