[meta] New members don't get emails

Hey all
Looking through the members of the group an interesting stat come up, that
48% of members to the Lucee group have the setting of “no emails” as their
delivery preference. I thought this was odd and it seems that that is the
default setting for google groups. Odd no?

See:

I think the question from the managers of this group is should we manually
change this for exiting users and let them know (seems a bit against the
logic and could possibly annoy people) and the currently subscribed people
might be thinking that it’s a hell-a quiet round these parts.

What are your thoughts?
a) Set them to email and do a posting that we point them to?
b) somehow email all of them directly? (there might be setting in the group
to do this.)
c) Send them a big email (on signup if possible) saying “Dude, there is No
Email!.. sign up here!”

Thoughts?

Hey, I set it up to email me once daily with updates, but I cannot seem to
find any settings about when that summary is sent. I was getting the
summary around 5pm for the Railo group, but for the Lucee group its coming
in at 3am. Anyone know how I might be able to change that?On Monday, February 23, 2015 at 11:29:22 AM UTC-6, Mark Drew wrote:

I get enough email. I’m happy to come to the google groups website to
read/respond.On Monday, February 23, 2015 at 12:29:22 PM UTC-5, Mark Drew wrote:

They’re grown-ups. Treat them as such. People can sort of their own
subscription settings.–

the link that you posted to SE says that this is by design and there is
no way to set it to “receive all emails” by default.

as for your options – definitely not (a). not sure what’s the diff
between (b) and ©? is it that (b) is a one-time thing as a group and
© is a one-time thing immediately after sign-up? whichever can be
automated is ok IMO, as long as it’s a one-time thing.On 2/23/2015 9:29 AM, Mark Drew wrote:
