Test. Copy/paste text from Word
It’s wasn’t
Seems ok...

Je suis Charlie. Je suis Ahmed. Je suis Juif. Je suis Parisien. I am Mancunian. I am Brum. I am London. Olen Suomi Soy Barcelona. I am Ukraine.

Re: A lot of testing
I apologize. I *was* testing mass email yesterday, and I still don't know how the code execution path escaped the testing guardrails I'd added. According to the mail log you received 57 (which is the number of members active in the last 90 days who have selected "yes" for receiving emails from the discussion board, but why that particular number I have no idea) emails over a brief period of about two and a half minutes. There were twenty other affected members, so apologies should go out to all these members (though I'm sure "testing" didn't mind since he has no actual email account):

testing
Thankfully it only happened once. I don't remember everything I did yesterday, but evidently I detected that bug right away.
I'll be doing more testing of mass email soon, but during testing I rig the code so the only actual recipient is me with the intended recipient in the email body. In the updated design of the control panel's mass email feature the categories are:
  • All active members who've recently visited (last 90 days)
  • All active members who haven't recently visited
  • All active members
  • All inactive members
  • All members
  • All non-permanently suspended members
Only members who have elected to receive email from the discussion board are sent email, and permanently suspended members aren't included unless a box is checked.
I plan to send a mass email out soon to all members describing a few current discussions. It will include an "Unsubscribe" link that will set their "Receive board email" setting to "No."

I'm seeing a red box that says image not found pretty frequently.
It's when a emoji short cut is used eg

Je suis Charlie. Je suis Ahmed. Je suis Juif. Je suis Parisien. I am Mancunian. I am Brum. I am London. Olen Suomi Soy Barcelona. I am Ukraine.

I can't seem to make it happen:
Can you point me at an example?

The example in the post above was one, but it’s now showing a normal smilie. It may be a strange aberration of using a satellite link for the last few days. I’ll check when I’m home.

Mass Email Just Sent
I'm sending out a mass email in two stages. I just completed the first stage by sending the email to all members who have visited the site in the last 90 days and have elected to receive emails from the discussion board. I'd appreciate it if a few people could verify they received the email, and also any feedback.
The next stage will be to send the same email to the rest of the membership.

Re: Mass Email Just Sent
Got.
One point - I don’t think that a thread last updated in May can be counted as an “active thread”.

I agree, but I wanted at least one thread on the creation/evolution topic. I'm open to suggestions.

Got it. Looks good.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Mass Email Just Sent
Got it.
Where did you get the descriptions for the threads?
That is, the "Choosing a faith" thread says "Is there evidence of a cosmic intelligence?"
I agree that's a fine description.
But did you type that in manually? If so, that seems like it could turn into a lot of extra work for an "automated" reminder email?
Maybe something like the first X characters of the first post?
Or the first X characters of the latest post?

I think including a thread that’s been dormant for nearly 4 months is worse than not including one on that subject area. If you must include one, start a new thread.

Re: Mass Email Just Sent
I would love to automate it. One advantage to automating is for updates to the email list, but another is as a pane on EvC Forum's Facebook page. But for this time around I was thinking of it as a one time thing.

No such email. Should I have received one of these?
