Given all of the various categories on TCG, with various notification methods (email, RSS, etc.), would you like to also have an email newsletter sent out every month or so?

It would be sent to the email address you have on file, and there is a method to opt out in your user profile already.

A few lines telling us what you've been up to would be handy.
I stop by quite regularly to look in on the forum, but it is easy to miss new bits in the guide or the BoM.
I haven't tried playing with notification settings for quite a while - last time I tried things weren't working very well...

Send me bug reports (or feature requests!) if you find anything odd or just that you don't like about the site. I don't mind tweaking the website, but a lot of times I am not aware that there are problems! (For example, I hadn't tried to register a new account in ages, and something ended up being broken for a while there.)

I am getting email notifications when new posts are made to the boards - anyone else using this feature, and if so, does it work for you? Just curious.

I have in the past posted most of my updates to the discussion forums (in the TCG website forum). I did have the "latest Guide changes" on the home page for a while, but it is poorly written code, and caused the home page to take 1 minute or more to load a lot of the time. When I have that fixed, I may put it back up. I also like to tweak a page or set of pages for a while before I announce they are ready to be viewed, so a dynamic list of page changes often isn't very useful during construction times.

If I try the email newsletter (using the notification settings) I'll set it up with a select few of you that are willing to put up with bugs until it seems to work.

I see now how to get notifications for the forums, but it would be handy to have similar for different sections of the guide... a weekly or monthly digest maybe rather than notifications for each update.

Feel free to experiment on my email address.
