Looks like there is a good amount of interest in the zoom tonight to talk about the Jan 6 Hearings.
I sent the zoom link through the Balloon Juice mailing list just now because this is kind of last-minute and it was expedient, but I think going forward we will have a separate mailing list for folks who are interested in zooms.
This can also be a good test of the mailing list because a lot of messages from mailing list places like MailChimp often end up in a special folder so the messages don’t show up in your inbox. So if you’re on the mailing list but you don’t seem to have received the message about tonight’s zoom, then check “Promotions”.
Here’s a tip from JWR:
Something I found out about Gmail’s “Promotions” tab (Win10 + Gmail), here’s what I saw/did:
If you tried looking through your folders via the left pane, found “Promotions” and tried dragging a message to your Inbox, the message *might* be copied to your Inbox/Primary tab, but you won’t get the “Would you like all messages from (username) be sent to your Inbox/Primary tab?”.
But, if you click on Inbox, you should have header tabs across the top. You should see Primary, Social, Promotions and Forums. Click the Promotions tab from there and drag the message from (username) to the Primary tab, and you *should* get the “Would you like all messages from (username) be sent to your Inbox/Primary tab?”
Anyway, this worked for me.
From another jackal, TS:
Had a friend miss some important emails because of “promotions”. An alternative option to JWR’s is to go into
gmail settings, inbox, categories
and untick EVERY item except primary. You will then have one tab in inbox and all your mail will go there. Works for me (and also for my friend after the event)
Looking forward to the zoom tonight!
