Freethinker bulletin: please get involved

THE make-over of the Freethinker site included a facility that allows us to send a weekly bulletin to anyone who hits the subscribe panel at the foot of the page.

The object of the bulletin is not only to highlight the best stories published on the site each week, but to draw your attention to archive material and to third party links on the Internet containing articles, reports, studies, and details of new publications of interest to atheists, humanists, freethinkers and non-believers of all stripes.

We also want to develop a “What’s on” section for groups and individuals to use to publicise their upcoming events. You can begin immediately by emailing details of such events to barry@freethinker.co.uk. There is no charge for this service, but a great deal of work is involved in constructing the bulletin, and donations will be greatly appreciated.

The bulletin is a valuable resource, and its success depends on large numbers of people signing up for it and taking an active part in shaping it.

So let’s get cracking and help get the Freethinker out to a much wider audience.

    Barry, my weekly bulletins have dried up completely since Disqus vanished. Also, Hutton alert on the previous thread.

    First off AC, only one bulletin went out last Thursday, and you should have received that. Another is due out tomorrow. I have checked the bulletin mailing list and you’re definitely on it. The’re no connection between Disqus, which we had to disable because it bolloxed all comments on the site. “Potty” Hutton managed to slip in (again). If it happens again, please ignore the troll, and his comment will either be edited or deleted, depending on my mood at the time.

    Apologies, Barry – I thought you were referring to the Disqus Digests which were landing every few days for a while.

    I tried to register and was told I’d get a confirmatory email which I had to reply to, but I never got it.

    I also bemoan the fact that the “submission” tool (whereby we could submit an interesting story, for example) seems not to be there any more.

    Matt, check your spam folder. When, we were testing the bulletin, a number of people claimed not to have received an confirmation email, but later found it in their spam. As to the submission tool, I will look into the matter.
