Email Campaign 1

Hey everyone, don't worry, I am still kicking :) It has been quite sometime since my last post. Our little article summary is telling me its been over a month. Well, time to fix that now.

I am sure that everyone has seen it by now, but I just got done sending out our first email campaign regarding the change for inactive accounts. But I did notice an error. My math was off by 10 days. I consider myself fairly proficient in math, so when I saw that I was saying 28 + 72 = 90 I couldn't help sigh.

Of course I didn't realize this until after the emails went out. So I am posting it here to clarify. The 90 days is right, so that would mean that 62 days after you go to INACTIVE you begin to lose coins daily. I am going to update the front page to reflect this post so everyone is aware.

Remember, there is no posting requirements for this at this time. All you need to do is to login and the clock starts over. It is late so I am turning in, but will check in tomorrow for questions / comments. I am also interested to see how many accounts go from INACTIVE to BLOGGER in the days and weeks following the email. I'll report some stats later.

You will need an account to comment - feel free to register or login.

Good to see you after a long long time even thought it is just to set your error right. Yes. I got the email. I wish deducting coins started much earlier than 90 days.

Yes I have received your email today and it is very clear. Thanks for sharing this info.

I just saw that I got that email. I'm heading to bed in a bit so I'll read it more closely tomorrow, but I can't see myself being inactive for that long. I have to write !

Got the email thanks, but confess haven't read it yet emoticon :sad: however, although I'm not as active as I was initially, I'm not inactive. I do try and get on here as often as I can.

Received your email.A much needed step.Well,better late than never.Glad to read your post. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the notification and update. Even though I might not post everyday, I make it a habit to log in everyday.

Yeah, I'm guilty of not being here for some time now. Work's got me tearing what's left of my hair out and I haven't been able to concentrate on PP, my other blog or my favorite thing- reading. Maybe I'll try to make a post out of that...

FreyaYuki wrote on June 13, 2015, 5:47 AM

Got the email. Read it but didn't notice that error. Then again, I didn't really check the numbers. LOL. But thanks for the clarification regarding this matter.

Received my e-mail. I really must post more :)

agvulpes wrote on June 13, 2015, 7:05 AM

I also got the email but not being big on Maths missed the error :) Thanks for the warning and it is up to us to do the 'right thing' by the Site and get to work :)

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 8:55 AM

No worries, just doing a little cleanup on our end :)

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 8:57 AM

You may be right, I felt 90 days was a long time. That is why the amount that starts at that time is so much. We may reduce the timeframe in the future (and reduce the number of daily coins removed) but right now we wanted to be fairly liberal in our first step.

MaeLou wrote on June 13, 2015, 8:57 AM

I don't know why you would assume you are not welcome. We are just not accepting new members from certain countries, we are not doing anything with current members. However, if you would still like us to shut your account down, please let us know.

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 8:59 AM

That's the idea, is to give people who want to write the chance and to slowly weed out those who either lost interest or just abandoned the site. If they have no interest in taking the money, then we will certainly put it back into the platform instead of leaving it out there in the ether.

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 9:00 AM

Its a very liberal policy, so you have nothing to be concerned about it. Logging in once every 90 days should be easy :)

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 9:00 AM

You are right, it is later than I anticipated. Many things are these days, but we are still making progress so we are not stagnant at the moment (although it may seem like that at times from the outside).

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 9:01 AM

Logging in is all we ask at this point, and throwing in a post a week certainly wouldn't make your coins go down :)

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 9:03 AM

Don't worry, I completely understand. Life can be hectic and I know it all too well. That is benefit to making the policy so liberal at the moment. Logging in once every 90 days should be easy (unless you forget, which would have me written all over it on any other site).

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 9:04 AM

Don't worry, I proof read that email multiple times and I didn't even catch it. It wasn't until someone posted about it that I double checked and realized my math was off. *face palm*

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 9:04 AM

The more the merrier, for all of us :)

elitecodex wrote on June 13, 2015, 9:05 AM

Yep, the site can only be as successful as its members. Its up to you :)

wolfgirl569 wrote on June 13, 2015, 10:47 AM

I have seen a few people come back that said they even forgot about this site. It is helping get to people

CoralLevang wrote on June 13, 2015, 12:56 PM

As always, thank you for your commitment to keeping us all informed and maintaining the integrity of the site.

MegL wrote on June 13, 2015, 3:41 PM

Must admit, I am now seeing some people I haven't seen for quite some time, posting. I wondered why they were coming back now but it is all clear now! emoticon :grin:

BarbRad wrote on June 13, 2015, 6:25 PM

I got the email. I can't envision myself ever staying away for a month, but I think you've been more than fair with the warnings.

WordChazer wrote on June 14, 2015, 10:31 AM

A week's about all I usually have to stay away for, especially one like this where I just had a one darn thing after another week. Can't say off hand whether I've had the email yet but then again I'm still catching up with all my accounts having had the phone off for much of the week as well.

elitecodex Well, I couldn't get online until now. I did see the email and read it. I think this is a great proactive thing to do here at Persona Paper. I try to be active a lot here but it does not always happen that way. I do have other sites I use plus another writing site. So, my time is split. I love the interaction from the admins. I think this shows the members you care. As it should be.

carmela wrote on June 16, 2015, 3:43 AM

yes please shut my account down so you could use my one thousand plus coins on other members. thanks
