I have started building a Diplomacy World Email Mailing List through the service Mailchimp. You can sign up for that mailing list by clicking the following link:

The reason for starting this Mailchimp list is as follows:

1. Enabling direct contact with DW readers where they can add or drop themselves with ease.

2. My old email mailing list was a mess of 8 groups that I had to mail BCC two per day or I get tagged as spam by Yahoo and I can’t use Outlook for a day with that account. I don’t send to those lists any longer, so if that was the only place you were getting notices, you’re not getting anything now.

3. The oldest and most consistent method of communication is the old Yahoo group. With that being sold, there’s no telling when it will disappear.

If you get your DW news from Facebook and I decide to never use this list for other stuff, you don’t NEED too join. All optional. Unless FB slowly dies off. But I still suggest it. It’s free and easy.
