FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

I have set up an email list server to redistribute the FIRST email blasts. The list is free for all to use!

To subscribe, simply send an email to first_relay@pearsoncomputing.net and put the phrase SUBSCRIBE_FRC_RELAY in the subject; you do not need to include a message body. If subscription is successful, you will get an email welcoming you to the list.

Enjoy, and if there are any problems with the system feel free to contact me!

Eldarion

No, I will not use the mailing list for anything other than the FIRST email blasts, and I will not distribute the email addresses on the list to anyone.

Re: FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

This is an excellent idea, last year when FIRST sent out easyC
information we discovered that list of e-mails FIRST had on record were not
necessarily going to the right people. Some teams had the purchasing agent
at the school or sponsoring company getting all the e-mail blasts.

Re: FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

Good idea. Will it be possible for people to unsubscribe in the future, should they no longer want to receive these email blasts?

Simply send an email with the keyword REMOVE_FRC_RELAY to first_relay@pearsoncomputing.net

Re: FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

I like this idea, because it seems like every few months I drop out of the official FIRST list for some odd reason.

Re: FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

Personally, I think it's a great idea- I'm not currently on a team, but I hate being so far out of the loops- this is how I'm going to keep track of what's going on this year!
And also, sometimes even when you ARE on a team, the person assigned to forwarding out the blasts might not do so because a) they're too busy to check their email or b) they don't think it affects the group... I've missed out on more then one big even because of that!

This is the main reason that I am offering this service; the animation team missed out on the deadline extension Email and we ended up sending in our animation 2 weeks early!

If the blasts do not seem to be coming in for some reason, please write me at eldarion@pearsoncomputing.net. I will then check to make sure that my listserver is still on FIRST's mailing list.

Also, to everyone who gave me good rep, thanks! Think of it as a 'payment' for my free service!

Re: FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

i think its a good idea, another option, is that FIRST is keeping an archive on the usfirst.org webpage....

Re: FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

Would it be possible to make this thread sticky in the FIRST Email Blasts forum? That way, those who would like to sign up to receive the blasts won't have to hunt through pages and pages of ancient threads to find this one.

Thanks!

Eldarion

Re: FIRST Email Blast Mailing List now available!

Is there any way to prevent others from sending messages out besides yourself? A mentor just sent out one, and I (thinking it was someone from my own team) replied, but Verizon sent the email to the whole list....doh!
