URGENT – ACCIDENTAL DELETION OF ALL EMAIL SUBSCRIBERS!

01/05/2011

IMPORTANT  – PLEASE READ

While trying to fix an anomaly in the Emailed Reviews Subscribers List, I accidentally DELETED the email addresses for everyone who had signed up.  (I should add that only Stan Metzger and I can see these.)

This means that NO-ONE except Stan and  I – the only designated site administrators  – will receive notifications of new reviews or articles without  RESUBSCRIBING TO THE EMAILER.

PLEASE, PLEASE do this as soon as possible since I have no means of correcting this error myself except by installing a complete backup file –  a fairly radical process  on our new server.

With sincere apologies for this inconvenience, Bill Kenny
