Subj:   Admin Comment - Subscription Renewals
 
From:   John Hall

The TDATA-L list has gotten to a size where I would like to 'prune' those subscribers who are long gone, but still occupy subscription slots. To implement this I'm enabling the Renewal feature for the list (it's the least intrusive method that I can find).

What this means is that once a year, you will receive a single note from the ListServ asking you to confirm that you wish to continue your subscription to the TDATA-L list. At that time, just follow the instructions in the Confirmation Request (it's pretty much the same confirmation that you performed when you joined the list). It should take less than a minute of your time.

After you receive the Confirmation Request, you will have 30-days to respond. If you don't respond, then you will be automatically dropped from the TDATA-L list. If, for whatever reason, you are dropped and yet wish to continue with the list, then please re-join through the Teradata Forum:

www.teradataforum.com

As I understand it (I'm still learning how to manage the list), if you post to the list (Anomy posts don't count) or change your subscription settings during the year, then that activity is considered as a passive confirmation of your subscription, making the Confirmation Request unnecessary.

When I enable the Renewal feature (in the next day or so), everybody who has been subscribed to the list for a year (or more) and have not posted during that time will receive a Confirmation Request. After that, you'll receive a Confirmation Request after a year of inactivity.

People who have belonged to the list for less than a year shouldn't receive a Confirmation Request.


Thanks for your patience and cooperation with this administrative stuff.

John
