How does one subscribe to the FgFs newsletter?

Postby itismike » Sun Oct 03, 2010 6:28 pm

Is it possible to be added to a mailing list or enable a check-mark on my profile page to receive a link to the newly-published newsletters each month?

No. Well, sort of. If you register to the FlightGear devel-mailinglist, you will receive an email at the end of each month with a link to the latest newsletter. However, you will also end up with quite some emails about developments, questions, help requests etc. that you might not be interested in (you could set a filter in your mail-client though, to auto-delete (or move to a folder) messages from flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net, unless there's the word Newsletter in the subject)...

Besides that, newsletters are always announced here in the forum, and a link to the latest edition is offered at the main page of the wiki. Newsletters are released at the last day of each month, so setting a reminder in your cellphone/mail-client for that day could help too :)

There is the announcements mailing list, that would probably be a better place than FG devel for the newsletter.
Also, RSS feeds are supported by the wiki, too (as well as by the forum!).
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,
Hooray

As of today we have a special newsletter mailinglist, thanks to Curt! Please register yourself at https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/lis ... newsletter. Emails will be sent when a newsletter is released, and possibly also a week in advance of the release, in order to remind anyone that their help is welcome.

Cheers,
