Fan mails: Single notifications, daily suggest and/or RSS feeds?

Hello Wizzzzleys,

recently, the suggestion came up of sending only one daily digest of all fan mails, instead of posting a single mail for each new page. After all, it's a convenient function and it sure isn't our intention to spam you!

An alternative would be, that each of you gets a personal RSS feed, which summarizes all new articles written by your favorite authors ... those who don't like e-mail notifications can simply deactivate them in their settings.

Which option do you like best?

I would prefer a daily digest in email form. Why? Because I am more likely to click on the new wizzes when I get a daily email. I read my Reader in spurts (not daily) and will probably be overwhelmed with dozens of new wizzes. I will probably visit fewer through that avenue. 

Also, being a fan automatically send the notices. Using the RSS requires another step.

I kind of like the idea of a "daily digest".

I'd prefer the daily digest option too :)

I'd also prefer a daily digest.

I definitely prefer the daily digest format. Right now, the amount of emails is tolerable because I'm only a fan of 6 authors. If I become a fan of more than 15, this would drive me crazy.

I don't check my feeds as often as I should, so I think the digest would be a fair compromise between getting the word out from authors I am following and bombarding my inbox with emails from Wuzzley.

Thanks,

Bcarter

Daily digest is my preference too, I'm a little like Jimmie when it comes to using my reader - I'm getting better, but.......Smile

I would prefer something on-site. I already get so many emails from various sites it's hard to keep up and most only get skimmed. A single page here would be better for me.

I would prefer an RSS feed.  I would be more likely to skim an RSS feed that is sitting next to the RSS feed for this forum, than to read an email.

I love the daily digest idea.  I had to turn off my fan mail, as there was just too much, and we (family) all use the same inbox.  My reader is also overflowing all the time.

I would prefer the daily digest as I don't go to my reader that much.

I'm with Wrylit: I would love a page right here on the site where I could click and see new stuff from my favorite authors. Second to that, I would prefer a daily digest email. If I'm getting individual emails it is too much, and I turn them off. And I must confess, I've yet to venture into RSS reader territory!
