Is it possible that if a new rule is made, we all get a nice little IM telling us. Thanks
I've just checked and currently there are 2,834 members so NO!
Not sure I understand what volume has to do with it. I know that blanket IMs have been sent out in the past. How was that done? I assume there would be a "send to all" option that EVIcT has access to.
OK, sorry for being a little facetious there...and in case I upset anyone by using a smiley.
To answer you properly Chickpea65 ♥ we, the moderators, donít have a universal button for sending PMís to everyone. Our screen for sending PMís is the same as everyone elseís and also, last time I tried doing it, the PM system would only allow PMís to be sent out in maximum batches of 10 at a time. We also do not have any access whatever to peoples email addresses so we canít send out blanket emails.
For those who choose to sign up for them from the main site I know emails such as the Gingerbeer newsletter, can be sent out by the site owner. However I donít think admins can send out blanket PMís or emails either although EVicT will know better than me.
When it comes to minor little policy changes like, as in this case, making birthday threads sticky, we probably wouldnít feel it necessary to start a special topic to announce it. I did explain what we were doing when I stickyíd the first birthday thread.
When it comes to proper changes to the actual rules, so far as I have seen in the past admins have always discussed those through a thread on the boards and I would imagine that would continue to be the case although I canít speak for the whole admin/mod team.
