Default Mailing list manager / Re-confirmation popup

As part of our long road towards GDPR compliance and generally getting our house in order, we now have a singular place to edit your mailing list preferences.

You can access this at any time by visiting:

http://www.diyaudio.com/lists

After a few days, this will be hooked into the forum more deeply, and a slightly different (simplified) wizard will pop up when you log in to the forum, and guide members through choosing their email preferences.

This is currently a "soft launch" (live production test). It's been thoroughly tested, but you know what they say about best-laid plans. Please let me know if you experience any problems. Cheers.

Thanks to the handful of people who gave it a shot. I ended up rewriting half of it and the old database structure isn't compatible with the new one, so "please try again". Soon it will be auto-prompting you to reconfirm your mailing list preferences anyway when you view a thread or a forum and haven't reconfirmed your preferences, so either way, feel free to "test again" or wait 24 hours for the start of "one time" prompts to reconfirm your diyAudio community and diyAudio store mailing list subscriptions.

Looks like mail on the whole server is down at the moment, which is why this is throwing an error.

It forces you to click yes and confirm, otherwise the only option is to remove email and start up another one ???????

I don't really understand if this is a question or a statement. The mailing list re-confirm popup doesn't force you to confirm. You can confirm you want updates (which is the leading answer) if you like. We're offering a service and in exchange, we'd like to email you if you give us permission to do so.

If you don't want to do that, the next text underneath offers for you to alternatively "un-confirm and un-subscribe" and you will be removed from the mailing list and you won't ever see that question again. It's just gathering consent in a GDPR compliant way.

There is no option to "remove email". There is an option to "un-confirm and un-subscribe", which is hopefully self explanatory, but as you've posted this message, perhaps not and it needs some more explanation. I'm not sure what you mean by "start up another one", but feel free to let me know.
