Hey guys, 

I'm fast approaching a new account tier with the newsletter software I use. In probably less than 30 days it will end up costing me an extra $40 a month, so I'll be looking at alternatives but may need a few people to help test it (i.e. receive test newsletters to make sure they actually work).

I won't need many and I'll have an easy to way to sign up for the testing, but I wanted to put it out there to give a heads up.

I am also willing to help where I can.

 

TO EVERYONE:

 

Lets also not forget that there is another way to help Eric and VO.

 

MAKE A DONATION TO THIS SITE.

Its easy.. and Eric will never ask you to help in this way.

At the top of the main VO page .. ( in the grey bar) go to the SUPPORT MY WORK

and click there. Then there are simple links for donations in any amount you choose.And as he says, any amount helps.

Eric and this site have done so much for all of us that it would be good for each of us to consider this financial option.

There are a lot of us! A bit from many would help.

Your stoma will thank you!

 

( Eric... if I have overstepped here ... feel free to change/remove this post).

I agree with Dona, a lot of time money and effort has already gone into this site by Eric. Spread over many a gift would make a huge difference.

I really appreciate the support you two!

I'm just testing a few things out and I'll hopefully be ready to start testing in the next day or two.

UPDATE: The new Newsletter software is live!

Beta signup form is now live at: https://www.veganostomy.ca/newsletter/

Please, only sign up if you are fairly tech savvy - I won't be able to guide anyone through rudimentary steps as I have to focus on simply getting the software up and running. 

Note that things will be changing rapidly during the test, and you'll likely receive a bunch of emails as I test the email delivery system. 

If you're told that you're already registered, it's because your email is being used already on VeganOstomy (likely because you've registered on the forums). If this happens, I can manually move you to the beta mailing list. Private message me with your email address and I'll do it. 

Thanks for the help. I'm hoping this is a smooth transition - I can't test everything in a sandbox environment beforehand, so some of it will have to be tested "live".

Thanks John. That's normal... The message sounds strange, but I will change it soon ?
