Mailing list

Hi. I just discovered that the email address used to administrator the RuneScape Wiki mailing list was bouncing. Is there someone else who would like to look after the list? It isn't used very often, but it's there as a tool if you need it. If the settings are correct, the list admin shouldn't need to deal with spam, but only with held posts from registered users (held because they are too large, for example). There's a help page about this at Help:Mailing lists. Alternatively, the list could be closed if there are no current plans to use it. It can easily be reopened later by contacting staff.

I do not think we need the list, but if we decide to keep it, I will look after it. But, we have talk pages, IRC, the forums, and the Yew Grove so I think we are covered. Besides, I think most people do not know about the list(although I did). - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 01:04, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

I heard that the RS Wiki mailing lists have been disabled; is this true? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 04:26, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

No, it hasn't been disabled yet, but I can disable it if that's what the community here would prefer. Angela<staff /> (talk) 01:07, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
We also have our own in-game clan chat channel, so I think people would use that, even if every communication method on the wiki went down. Certainly I have never used the mailing list, but I think a bureaucrat should make the decision to disable it if appropriate. Is there a list of them somewhere? Couldn't find one myself.

Comment/Proposal - The mailing list appears to still be open, I recommend we just close it since we have the clan chat, the forums, irc and talk pages. Also, since no one watches it if any one posts on it they will likely not be answered. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 23:03, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Support Cat's Proposal - We are swimming in communication methods already, and you can probably add site notices to the list of ways to get attention. I think it would be same to close the list, at least for the time being. If no one on this wiki noticed it was like this, thats a good sign we don't need it. RandoxTalk 00:49, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Comment - This should just be simple: Do we want the mailing list or not and if we do want it, then who will administrate and watch over it? So far only 4 people have commented as such lets get enough people and reach consensus. This is one of many threads that have been completely forgotten. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 18:47, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Support closing the list - We don't really need it (per Cat). Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 19:23, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per Randox. --Quarenon  Talk 19:32, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Closed - The mailing list will be disabled.--
