Hi Catya, On 14 Jan 2014 Catya Belfer wrote on Cohousing-L refering to Cohousing-L : >I'm happy to give it more visibility on the new website :) It's tricky >because we also want people to sign up for cohousing now and other >mailings, and it's confusing if there's more than one thing to sign up for. > Maybe we can figure out a technical integration so that people who sign up >for coho/us mailings can also check a box to be added to cohousing-l or >something. > >Catya Belfer - www.catya.org >Technical Director - www.cohousing.org >Cohousing in MA - www.mosaic-commons.org While an integrated subscription page might be nice, a simpler approach would be some mutual cross references The Cohousing-L Info Page ( http://lists.cohousing.org/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l ) has long had a note like the one below (tho today as part of a long overdue rework of the Info Page I finally changed references to "magazine" to "sends email...") Subscribing to Cohousing-L Note that the Coho/US sends email seperately from Cohousing-L ( as of 2014, 3 types: Newsletter , mailings from Communities , from Cohousing Professionals). Use totally separate subscription page: [link:] Coho/US Mailings ( http://www.cohousing.org/subscribe ) I note that the the Coho/US Mailings page has a green box that says: CohoUS encourages you to add your name to our database of people interested in Cohousing. Check the boxes below and we'll connect you with forming groups, cohousing professionals and the latest developments in the Cohousing movement. You may unsubscribe at any time and your information will never be used other than to send you the type of information you request below. I suggest adding a note / link something like: Note that the Cohousing-L discussion mailing list about all aspects of cohousing uses a completely seperate subscription, see Cohousing-L Info Page ( http://lists.cohousing.org/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l ) Also / alternately there could be something brief line parallel the 3 kinds of Coho/US mailings check boxes like: * Cohousing-L discussion (see [link] ) A brief link on the Coho/US contact page to the Cohousing-L Info Page would be helpful. BTW the page https://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-list which has been around quite a while could use a rewrite. In particular I think the warnings that posting to Cohousing-L are not vetted is repeative, maybe over the top, paranoid or self serving. --S a couple other subscription notes -- I corresponded off list with Martie who the original "Please add me to the list" message was about and hopefully resolved her problem. Feel free to write me if you have a Cohousing-L problem. The bottom of every message has a link that will get you to me via Info pages etc.. Any decent mailing list should have similar list help info at the end of each message it sends. I added an FAQ entry about recent Gmail problems that complicate subscribing to Cohousing-L (dont know about if it affects Coho/US subscribing) : http://justcomm.org/jc-faq.htm#Q17 Fred -- Fred H.
