I discovered today that it is 4 months since I last visited the DAFNE Online site. My mind and body have been elsewhere.

Some of the more commercially oriented organisations e-mail me weekly or thereabouts with a list of topics, giving me a reminder of the existence of their website. I choose whether to read or ignore their message, follow news thread links etc. Such an e-mail stream keeps the remote service in my consciousness.

If DAFNE Online did this, and sent an occasional reminder, would it be of value or would users view this as an irritation please?

What do you think?

If people do want such a service, what frequency should it be?

Wouldn't hurt I suppose..............maybe with option of turning it on and off.......................

I visit pretty much daily, at least Monday to Friday anyway, so the option to turn it off would be good...............

I think monthly would be enough......... Smile

Would be a good idea then as Novorapidboi26 says also with the option to turn it on / off.

I'm on here most of the time anyway Laughing

Take a look at the Users tab, and the number of subscribers with zero posts Sad
Many will have signed up after their course finished, and then had other priorities in life.
A reminder certainly wouldn't harm, and the more traffic the site generates, surely that must be a +ve for us all.
