You know what they say about best-laid plans and even though Adaptistration has relied on WordPress to deliver its per-article email notifications for the last several years, some recent changes in how they manage that process makes it a less reliable option. More importantly, it seems that they’ve “temporarily” misplaced the blog’s existing subscription list. So while they are trying to find out what happened to it, anyone who was previously subscribed should take a quick moment to opt for the better-safe-than-sorry choice and resubscribe.
And no worries about any potential for duplicates. Once WordPress finds the original list and it gets uploaded to the new email marketing provider, MailChimp, that system will automatically merge and sync any records to prevent sending out multiple copies of the same message. Because who has time for that, right?
A thousand apologies for any inconvenience but thanks to everyone for taking a quick moment to send your email and confirm the opt-in email. If, for some reason, you subscribe and email notices don’t begin arriving by Thursday, send along a note with the email address you used and we can take a closer look for you.
Note: those of you signed up for the Weekly Email Summary are good to go and don’t need to do a thing. We’ve been using MailChimp for that service for years now and it is mutually exclusive to this migration.
