Due to the increased traffic on the site, and volume of fanmail sent between you, the users, we have made some changes to how FanMail works. We will be rolling these changes out to the live servers shortly, but wanted to take a moment to make you aware of what they are.
When the changes go live, you’ll notice in your FanMail:
A User and Groups tab
Fanmail will now be sorted into 2 locations, peer to peer mail and mass mailings to a group. The Fanmail counter in the header will only count User mail; group mail will now be a bulletin style.
Group messages will now expire
After 7 days, group messages will be deleted.
Group messages will have more info
With this change, you can now see which group the message came from, and also how long it has before it expires.
User messages will stay the same
Nothing will change with how the User FanMail works; group messages will just be separate.
Finally, this is just the beginning of improvements to FanMail. We will be working to make this feature more robust and helpful over the coming year. As always, your feedback is a huge help in all our endeavors, so fire away!
