Jewishgen Offer


I'm wondering why an offer like this is sent through the digest and is
only valid for ONE day.

Those people who don't read digests on a strict daily basis have no
opportunity to benefit from this offer such as this and miss out.

But Jewishgen also misses out by not making this offer more "apparent" and
reaping the support of its members.

I too am not happy with this digest format.

Agree! Very cumbersome. Seems that the digests come more than once a day on occasion. Must be a better, more user friendly way.

I received an email about it, but not until Monday afternoon, and I was off my computer for the day by then. When I saw the offer on Tuesday morning, I did make the contribution, but don't know if it will be accepted as per the offer, or not, since it was no longer Monday ("today only") but it was less than 24 hours since the offer was sent to me.

I agree with Linda F.—but how would you ever know to what I am “agreeing?”
Yes, this new format is off-putting and “cumbersome” and not as useful as in the past and also arrives too often.

Originally, it was told to us that they now have a maximum length of posting they can send out on any single message. Rather than continue with such a format, why not switch to something that better fits the needs of JGen readers? (so, for example, digest people get only one email per day as in previous years and also the original question/email is posted along with any current replies.
Also, why doesn’t the editor/moderator eliminate all the long, blank spaces in many emails posted?
