Welcome to the New WADaBo List!

Email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser



As mentioned in our last email from the mailman list, we're switching some things up. Same great list, same great classes, workshops, performances and parties. Different website, different mailing list. Some of the differences you may notice:

  • Website: We've fully switched to Google Calendar for classes - this should be easier to read, and easier to update. We've added a Forum for discussions. We're still working on adding content, but it'll come. Updates to the site will be easier, and anyone can do so (if you're interested, drop a line). We're still putting finishing touches on new website (http://wadabo.drupalgardens.com/), check it out, feedback welcome! We'll port the full wadabo.com over there shortly.
  • Mailing List: You can adjust your preferences and info in MailChimp for emails coming to you. You can get HTML emails (and we can send HTML emails, not just plaintext)
Again, a HUGE THANK YOU to Robert D. for hosting our website & mailing list for so long.

About this list
