Moved from another thread so it would not get lost - ww

I had another idea & wondered about .With the x000,members you have.had you ever considered using a zip code of members to see the highest concentration of members or ACTIVE members or to plan HH's?I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here.

Greg I split your request out from another post so it would not get lost. And I will also comment on it as its an important topic we are working on.

When we first started SD we collected only the barest minimum of information. Over time we have added more information and more importantly in a format that can be readily sorted so it can be extracted and used to assist with a host of projects INCLUDING Happy Hour invites, etc.

We implemented the first phase a year ago (which means unless members update their profiles) we won't have their zip code not some of the other information we NOW collect.

Secondly, we have tried to work with the email client built into the site but it has so many limitations we had to give up.

Third we researched other email clients since we need to export the names and contact info from the site to an email client in order for us to be able to contact members. Not only do we need to manually do this step but we also need to allow for members to opt out, update emails, reply back and last but not least...we need to have people who can manage the relay of information via the new email client.

Any IDEAL email client will allow us to segregate emails by zip code or city/state or region or country etc. It will allow us to send out a big blast to everyone or just to members in the Chicago area. And it needs to be easy to use, secure, and reliable.

So that is where we are at. We have completed the first 3 steps but now we are working on implementation. That is the hardest part. Having said that...we are always looking for trusted volunteers to assist with ALL the projects we are working on.

In your case I know you have offered time and time again to assist with organization of Chicago area Happy Hours and events. We are thrilled that you are helping and we are working hard to get our email client up and running so we can contact those members that we do have accurate information for both now and going forward.

Unfortunately when you do not have a staff...the timetable can be very unclear as to when a project will be completed or not. And that is where we are currently at. Thank you for asking and for the great suggestion! We really do want to implement this one!!! :P Kamala

Kamala,
I have some ideas for figuring out how many people are in an area via city/state and/or zipcode but it would not allow you to email them. I will send you my suggestions via pm.
