Re: Sending a bulk digest to a list from discourse is trickier than I'd thought

So just a stupid question I guess

If there is a community member who doesn't use discourse and you want to loop them into a discussion, say via CC, as we do all the time with mailing lists.... is there a way to do that?

I ask bc I dont intend to move to discourse, and if the messages dont get broadcast here I guess I'm out. If someone wanted to CC me in on smtg tho (which happens) what is the mechanism for that or am I essentially between a "monitor yet another thing" and "get left out of stuff you probably need to be involved with occasionally" ?

I just can't monitor yet another thing.

We've got several other options:

1. Just close the list with one final message.

2. Close the list and add an auto-response directing to the new location.

3. Close the list and post a message montly reminding people to migrate if
they're still interested in following.

4. Develop something that uses the Discourse API to provide an automatic

5. Other ideas?

My personal thought is option 2, but I'd like to hear what you all think.

(I know I just said we should actually move where we're discussing things
starting now, but this particular topic seems of most interest to current
mailing list subscribers?)
