Haha. This goes back to what group owners really want which is a way to mass email the group to announce parties and events. Which has been brought up multiple times and shot down by sls every time it was brought up.

I understand sls's concern about spam but maybe set a limit to 1 announcement a week or every other week. Every other Swinger website allows this for getting out group messages and is the only true way to get out an announcement.

Why is sls still so stuck on this?

This had not come up before, and really the easiest/best thing to do for it until they look at it further, would be to create a discussion in your group, with your newsletter.

The Newsletters page appears to have only "Create, Invite, Compose", with no means of transferring newsletter ownership. Further, the system doesn't appear to allow a new group master to create a fresh newsletter. Lastly, there also appears to be no means by which the old newsletter can be deleted, allowing the from-scratch creation of a new newsletter. We need to know how to manage the group newsletter after the group has been transferred to a new group master...Help! What is the process/procedure? Has this issue never come up before? Disseminating information to group members is becoming a real problem!

Unfortunately I do not have a way to manually change that to your name.

Again, the newsletters are in Beta, and we are not quite sure where we are headed with them.

Chystal: I managed to invite all of our group members to subscribe to my Personal newsletter for the group -- a grand total of 27 invites. Thus far only 1 of the invitations has been accepted, that being from the former Group Meister.

It would seem that any of three things has happened. 1) Nobody cares (which is unlikely); b) People are thoroughly confused because they think that they are already subscribed to the group newsletter; and/or 3) the notification on their home page is so subtle that they haven't noticed it. All in all, as before, a pretty frustrating exercise.

Because nobody was accepting the invite I did a copy and paste and mailed the newsletter to each member. That was pretty fast except that I got ahead of your timer allowing a max of three mailings per member.

Any chance you can manually transfer the group Newsletter to the new Group Master (me)? I would hate to have to go through all of this again in a week.

I can understand, and I am sorry for the frustration.

Chrystal: Thank you for the additional info. The method worked but does take time. A particular issue is that for a "Personal" newsletter I am only allowed to issue 10 invites per day so it will take 4 days to invite everybody in our small group. I understand the logic but it gets in the way at the moment. It would certainly have been easier if I had been able to establish a Group newsletter and issued invites to everyone at the same time. Even easier would have been if the Group newsletter previously established had gone over with the change of Group Master last week.

I realize that trying to integrate all the possible variations into the program can be a bear and there is always someone who wants things to work a bit differently than the way you had planned it. At the moment it is pretty frustrating but I assume you will work it all out eventually. Thanks for your help. Bob

You would need to search for the profiles, or if they are in your group, you can do it from there. Once you have opened up their profile, then you would click the invite link which is next to the mail link in their profile.

I created a Personal Newsletter for our St. Louis Area Over-50 Swinging Couples (now I cannot find it although I had saved it but that is a different issue). Now I need to create a list. Ha! There is a button to click on! A couple of clicks later I got the following: "You may invite members to join your NewsLetter using the Invite tool on Profiles (near the mail link). "

Unfortunately I cannot find any such tool. Actually, I cannot find anything called "Profiles" or even a "Mail Link." My list of links on the SLS Home Page is Home, Help, Mailbox, Search, Who's On, etc. I don't see anything in the Search page that looks like 'Profiles" or anything in Mailbox that looks like "Mail Link," and nothing that looks like an Invite Tool.

This is something that is still in testing phase, and not all the kinks are worked out.
