#4058 new enhancement

Auto-notifier of new local WordCamp site to old local WordCamp site subscribers

Reported by: camikaos Owned by:

Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords: needs-patch


create a way to auto-notify subscribers from a past WordCamp site that a new WordCamp is happening and they should subscribe to the new site for news. Example 500 people subscribe to WordCamp NYC 2018. It’s safe to assume that those local folks very well may want to know when another local WordCamp happens but the organizers may not have access to post from the site. So when the 2019 site goes live is there a way for the system to tell the 2018 site to send out an update to subscribers linking them to subscribe to the new site? Thanks to Drew Jaynes for the suggestion

In Canada due to the CASL regulations it would have to be the old site that sent the notification prompting them to subscribe to the new site/list. I'm not a lawyer but my understanding is it would be prohibited to just export/import that list to the new site and sent the notification from there. I think it's a great way to gain exposure for the new site, I mainly wanted to flag the liability to make sure the notification is sent by the original site/list and not from the new one.
