Re: Visit JewishGen’s New Website!

Hi Ariel,

I can’t help you with your questions about the new website but here are some answers for your questions concerning the new discussion group. 

You can send messages to this group from any email client. Just use the address:

If you are trying to reply to a message that you have received, just hit reply in your email client. Make sure to include some quoted text so that your message has some context.

Messages are moderated for most new members and cannot be seen until approved by one of the groups moderators.

If you continue to have issues posting directly from your email client, please feel to contact me at hopko@... and I can try to troubleshoot the issue with you.

Thanks for joining!

Concerning the new discussion group beta, I like also its looks but I see some drawbacks to the previous version: 
- I cannot answer or post directly from my mail. I have to navigate to the new platform in order to do it.That means more work for the same result and that could generate less posts from the users.
- In addition, I need to create a new identifier in order to post (so now I need two different ones to deal with JG).
-  As I post directly on the site. How will moderators control it? Will it be published until the moderator reviews it? Before, the moderators would ensure what reached the users.
- If posts are available until review, the possibility to add links on the posts could have some security risks.
