Open letter to our Subscribers

Dear Win10.guru subscribers, our esteemed geeks:

So far, the only negative feedback we have received about this site has been that we’ve sent too many emails on a couple of occasions. The only emails we will send, and the only way we will ever use your email address, is to send notifications about new content. But, as already mentioned, some of you have contacted us to let us know that getting two or three emails per day on days we publish multiple posts, it still is too much.

You might have noticed that you have’t received any notification emails so far this week, not since last Saturday. We have published quite a few posts since then. But, we’ve decided that starting this week, we will send only a weekly summary every Saturday. The only exception is this post. Subscriber notifications for this single post will go out as soon as I publish it, just to let you know about this post and related changes to our notification policy. Notification and links to rest of tis week’s posts will come on Saturday.

We respect your opinion. Feel free to leave a comment, and tell us what you think of this change. In case you do not want to make your comment public, send an email to info (at) Win10.guru. We would also like to hear if you would like us to send you push notifications in your browser when new content becomes available.

About comments: we are still working to find a solution that allows you geeks subscribe to comments, and be notified when your comment gets a reply, be you a subscriber or not. At the moment, if you have a comment posted and want to check for a reply, the best way is to visit Win10.guru and check comments for the post in question.

That’s it this time. Remember that all your comments and feedback is greatly valued and appreciated.

    Now that’s something I don’t understand, why subscribe if one doesn’t want to be notified about new content ???
    Why not just unsubscribe instead to complain ? I don’t open every time, only at times when it looks it will coincide with my interest.

      However, it really is the only negative feedback we’ve got. Not often, only a few subscribers have left this kind of feedback. This, switching to weekly notification email with links to all post from that week, it might be a better way to let you geeks to know what’s happening.

    I think a weekly summary could be great. There are also ways to associate emails with subscription frequency and even content types without having to register an account (for privacy). I don’t know how exactly this is implemented but I’ve seen a lot of sites using this kind of feature.

    Push notifications sounds like good idea too.
