- ANN Newsletter (You might want to add that to the Subject line)

It was probably just my fault, probably randomly clicked while scrolling and moving the mouse, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't a mistake.
When I was choosing the ways I watch anime I got to the end and "illegal streaming platforms" was checked. I just wanted to make sure it's not like that for for everyone. I partake in many ways, but fear of viruses keeps me away from illegal streamers.

Also Woo-Hoo!... I may very well delete since I come here almost daily and don't miss much, but nice prize and I wish you luck.

By now, subscribers should have received issue #1 of ANNouncements, the new ANN newsletter. This topic is for sharing what you thought of it.

As the curator, I'm looking for suggestions for making it more useful. Like many of you probably, I've subscribed to a bunch of newsletters during the pandemic. Not only do they break up the monotony, but newsletters have been coming back in a big way; remember when they were the Next Big Thing in 2011 or so?

Post your questions and comments here!

Like Spastic Minnow I'm here everyday (twice a day usually) and I check the news on each visit. I'll leave the newsletter for those with less time.

I honestly can't remember what my initial post was even about anymore.

But my email is a flaming dumpster of promos and ads. You know, the 5 or so Rightstuff daily emails (which I often open, so, my fault), Kmart giving me online store cash, HBO telling me what I've been missing after subscribing for a month (for Earwig).

But I'm sure it's a good thing for some.

Yeah, the current newsletter probably isn't suited towards people who are here every day and are certain they catch everything. But I hope it will be good for people who don't hit the site every single day and want to make sure they haven't missed any really big or really interesting news at the end of the week.

I think there’s a bug in the reminder selection because every week without fail I choose “never remind me” when asked to sign up for the newsletter. (Because I visit the site pretty much daily.) And yet every weekend I’m asked again if I want to sign up, so again I choose “never remind me.” Rinse, repeat, etc., since the newsletter’s inception.

Oh, sorry about that. It's because it's actually a completely new announcement, with the exact same message, every week.

Basically we have:

Announcement 1 - Day 1-2 "XYZXYZ"
Announcement 2 - Day 8-9 "XYZXYZ"
Announcement 3 - Day 15-16 "XYZXYZ"

So if you click "never remind me" on Announcement 1, you'll never see announcement 1 again, but you'll see Announcement 2, and then if you click "never remind me" on that one, it will stop showing it to you, but Announcement 3 will appear a week later.

I'll discuss with Dan to see if there's a way that we can make recurring announcements that are still the same announcement so that if you click "never remind me," you won't see them when they return.

Hi,

We've resolved this problem, but it required me to make 1 new post. You should be able to click “never remind me” this time and you will not see it come back next week.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
