Communication Idea

Post by Pharaoh Amun Ra on Thu Aug 26, 2010 1:12 am

I'm wondering, has there been any talks about setting up a text and/or email distribution system for clan messages? With all these communication tools, including iphones, Evo 4g (my phone), etc, we tend to use our mobile devices for everything. I think it would benefit the clan if we could send communications about clan matches, roll call, or any other pertinent info via text and/or email. Especially for those who don't have XBL or access to the forums readily available. Thoughts?

Not bad, but a lot of us already know each others cell # and text/talk regularly even without XBL. Thinking of changing mine so I can stop getting creepy messages from UC Shocked (just kidding...but as an example we do speak often).

Now, we could create a "call me/text me" post in the private section and have everyone post their cell numbers. Would that be what you mean? Or am I missing something?

Kinda sorta. For example, my last year at FAMU, the school allowed us to sign up for an alert system that sent mass text messages about events that were occurring on campus i.e. (registration deadline, finals schedule, tornado warnings, etc.).

Aside from the communications we have amongst each other (i.e. UC calling/texting you at 4 am about his latest nightmare, lol), I'm suggesting a more official means of communicating w/ the entire clan simultaneously. Similar to an alert system. Am I making sense?

Sounds like a cool idea. Any idea how we could set something like this up?

Texting alerts would cost.

We can already mass email all the forum users.

once you reply to a post, you get an email notification when someone else adds to the post. So if there is a post on the "clan match"you will get an email alert if you have ever replied to that post or ar currently watching it. IDK if this will help, but If we create a thread labeled " clan business/events" and then you select to either watch it or if you reply to it, then anytime anybody adds a post to it then you will get an email alert.

@OC I haven't come up w/ anything. I was just thinking about it before I fell asleep last night. I'm brainstorming though.

@Epic I hadn't thought about the cost of sending the mass texts but I still think it would be a good thing to look into to. I figured we had the ability to mass email everyone but I don't think we've utilized it.

@Droopy Yea I'm aware of the email notification options we have on the forums. In fact, I have it set up already, which is why I know when you guys are replying to my topic, lol. In regards to my post, I'm speaking more along the lines of if clan leadership needs to send something to all of us or if a member wishes to send a reminder about a clan match. This is an effort to help a member who doesn't have access to XBL and/or the forums readily available still be kept in the loop about clan business.
