Continuing the discussion from “More granular mailing list mode”:
Mailing list mode and some related features have received several updates recently. Minor tweaks include:
- Renamed “Email digest” to “Activity Summary”
- We now allow admins to completely disable mailing list mode.
But most importantly, when mailing list mode is enabled, there is now a new default option called “Daily updates”.
Enabling “Daily updates” will disable the Activity Summary to avoid redundant overlap of notifications. When enabled, you’ll receive a daily update of all forum activity, except for topics or categories that you have muted.
It looks like this:
Massive updates, like ours, can be conveniently opened in a new window.
You can test it by turning it on here on Meta for the next few weeks/days. Do note however that we will eventually turn mailing list mode off again, since supporting mailing list behaviour (and the thousands of email sends that go with it) is not a priority for the Meta community.
A big thanks goes out to @gdpelican for developing this feature for us
As our first MOSS collaborator he’s been very patient with us trough our trials & errors while we’ve worked our way towards a smoother process for sponsored collaborations.
