Re: Mailing List Problem?

Fri Feb 24, 2012 1:19 pm

Hello everynone.

Since I signed up for the mailing list, maybe a couple of weeks ago, I never received any mail from Raspberry Pi.

I find it strange and something could be wrong.

I am affraid I won't get the "GO" mail...

Can anyone from RP help me find out what/if may be the problem?

Thanks a lot.

The reason you are not getting emails from them is due to them not sending any. The first one is likely to be the notification that the Pi has gone on sale.

Thanks for the info, Grumpyoldgit.

I guess they could send at least one test mail before the "For Sale Now". The way expectations are high this simple action could avoid a lot of complaints and disapointment.

Regards,

Edit: On second thought maybe I am wrong. There was the confirmation mail saying:

! Congratulations ! !

But have you created an account at the Pi Shop?

Yes I have. And have even simulated the purchase of a sticker all the way to the end to get to know how it will go down.

Thanks.

Schoolboy Error on my part.  I have a Forum Account, but not a Pi Shop (or I didnt until 5 minutes ago!).  Thanks Grumpyoldgit - it could have been embarassing for me when rushing to try and place my order.

As Grumpy said, they haven't been sending anything out on the mailing list They don't want people to view them as spam so rather than sending out an e-mail every time the front page has an update they only send one for really big ticket items (such as when the alpha boards got back from the shop)

Since the question has been answer I'm going to go ahead and close this thread
Dear forum: Play nice ;-)
