Has anyone else noticed how old some of the posts are that are quoted in the Gransnet Daily newsletter?
In today's 'What Not to wear at 50+', there are comments which must have been trawled up from years ago! User names from previous incarnations abound! To name but a few; Baggy, Bagitha, Gracesmum, Anagram and Wotsamashedupjingl.
Is it becoming difficult to fill a daily slot do you think? thlhmmI preferred the weekly email.

I don't see the daily news letter, as I have the Active page pinned to start up on my phone. I agree though, hardly news.
Someone did comment that a thread that I started in April '13 and has been resurrected that they thought it odd for it to be in the daily news bulletin.
On a similar note, has anyone noticed how many threads have been resurrected lately.

Yes, I have noticed, nina. I think some new members fail to notice the dates on threads. I felt for you on one occasion in particular sad. Let's hope the penny drops soon!thlsmile

It's all very well resurrecting old threads but how do new posters find them to resurrect?

Obviously, I know the mechanics but it's hard work to go trawling through lots of old threads 'just in case'.

And, please can we have the weekly newsletter back or at least a poll to see who likes which system best!

I can't be the only one who deletes without reading the newsletter.

I do too. I suppose I should cancel it...

I used to quite look forward to the weekly one.

Yes, the weekly newsletter felt like the start of the weekend.

Yes, I too preferred the weekly newsletter.

I had a moment of pride when a whole post (Engaging with the customer) was quoted in the "from the forums" bit grin

Yes, please bring back the weekly newsletter, I can`t find anything to interest me in the daily one, and after just a cursory glance, I delete it without reading it properly, whereas the weekly one was always interesting.

Today we have a quote from Veryordinaryjangly, whoever she might be! I missed that incarnation. thlgrin
