I would like to introduce you to a new way to contact all consultants or EMA members. We have introduced a mixed mailing / forum software called Discourse, which is a huge technological leap from either our old forums or our old way of using email lists.
How do I use it?
You have two ways to use the forums.
You could send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org address all consultants (this list is usable now),
email@example.com address all of the EMA (I’ll work with @Mel and @sanderso to get the EMA list up to date), or
firstname.lastname@example.org discuss shift trading
Alternatively, you could go to http://forum.emlondon.ca/ and use a forum interface to post. Login is done through EMLondon
The default settings should suit most people. The software, however, is powerful and will let you do all kinds of things, like set your notification settings, etc.
If you want your message to get blasted to EMA or Consultants, then either post in the #administrative:ema or #administrative:adult-em categories, or use the tags @Consultants or @EMA from posts anywhere.
Over the next week or so, I will continue to work with some of the ‘early adopters’ to work through some of the issues. After that, I will gently nudge people to use the forums and mailing lists instead of the current method of email strings.
As ever, please don’t hesitate to email me or message me if you run into any issues.
