Thanks for the answer also. I'm always appreciative of how much the forum here runs on good will and sincere effort to help folks out, who occasionally might not realise the amount work required to make things happen.

Even if I miss out, I'd like to think I'm grateful for the opportunity.

Thanks again!

I suppose in a perfect world you'd have a thread with the proposed 'opening' of the waitlist declared, and then let folks jump onto that thread when it 'opens' and then go through your process of emails and so on.

It's getting a bit recursive though... you almost need a thread about the thread that'll let you know about the waitlist...
One central place for information and good regular communication is the best solution. Right now it's very hard / incredibly time consuming to actually send email updates (lots of copying of email addresses across systems), or post news (where?). This would fix all that.

Maybe change the diyaudio landing page? OCAU seems to do it well, insofar as the landing page is a daily news update. No idea if that's the best model to follow, but easy to include key messages there that are broadly needing broadcast.

Edit: I should say I have -no- expertise in this area!

Edit edit: That might be a bad idea actually - I scan the threads there near daily for interesting chats ongoing, and I guess that's the main point here at diy!

Is there a way to have a thread that only admins can post in? Then those interested could subscribe and when the new item is available the admin could post a reply to the thread and everyone that subscribed would get and email notice. It wouldn't guarantee that you'd get one but at least it would be a heads up.

A notification list? Yes, we already have that functionality and use it. I was talking about a queue system as a solution to the OPs question about "missing out".

There will be certainly be a list for this. That said the first place a link to a new product is ever posted has traditionally been in the discussion thread itself. That makes sure the most engaged and active people see it and have a chance to participate.

That's kinda what prompted me to post. I don't really check the old VFET thread anymore since building mine, and I imagine that's where an initial post might go.

I guess it's the 'might' there that's the challenge!

No matter what happens, without good communication in the lead up and published times and dates, someone will be asleep when the email goes out (50% of all the store's shipments are international). I'd really like to avoid that. Systems makes things easier and leave less room for mistakes, so I do appreciate all the comments in this thread and will definitely work on something for the future.

Until then, do know there will be a list of some kind, and I'll post a link here to be sure you know about it when it appears.

Or, maybe Jason should implement a Nathan For You rebate-style requirement for joining the waitlist...
