Island Packet Email List

One of the moderators alluded to the demise of the email lists on the IP forum. Is this true or just a temporary problem?

As you know the email list is very active and it would be a shame if the users we not notified of a change in availability.

Island Packet discussioin list

I received an email from sailnet saying all the lists were being stopped -- it said:
Dear list.sailnet.net user,

This email is to inform you that the list.sailnet.net server has been taken off line . This was done for a number of reasons, but primarily due to declining activity on the lists and the movement of many list members to the forums on the SailNet.com website.

We understand the importantance of the lists to many of you and it's for this reason that we've saved and archived all of the content from all of the lists and transferred that data to a new and special section of the SailNet.com website.

You can access all of the old list server messages here

We've have created a number of new forums on the SailNet website to replace the lists on the SailNet List server.

You will find these new sections in the 'Boat Builder Row' Section of the SailNet website for brand specific discussions

and

'Special Interest Groups' on the SailNet website for lists such as "Atomic4', "Chesapeake Bay' etc.

It's important to understand that you stll have the ability to get immediate email notifications when someone replies to a topic of interest to you and in addition you can choose a 'Daily Digest' or 'Weekly Digest' of threads (discussions) you're interested in. In addition you can even subscribe to all activity in a forum if you wish and receive immediate email notifications, daily or weekly digests too!

The SailNet forums offer many distinct advantages over the list server. Features include your ability to 'search', 'post photos', quote prior responses, and much more. The server that was being used to host list.sailnet.net will soon be re-deployed as the database server for the SailNet website giving us faster response times on the SailNet website.

We are sure you'll be happy with the features you'll find on the SailNet website forums and our staff of moderators stand ready to assist you in any way possible.

To access the archive of all the old list server messages

Please remember that the SailNet website has many other forums besides the new sections created to replace the old list server.
Please remember that the SailNet website has many other forums besides the new sections created to replace the old list server. Just to mention a few, they are: Gear & Maintenance, Buying a Boat, General Discussions, Cruising, Chartering, Learning to Sail and many many more. In addtion the SailNet website offers a photo gallery, boat reviews, blogs and free classifieds too!


Regards,

SailNet Support

Too bad. I doubt IP traffic will increase.
