Re: Test message to Flicktype subgroups and former group address

You are a beta tester because you joined as a beta tester. If you volunteered to be an alpha tester, then you will be an alpha tester. Someone who is an alpha test is going to have to have much more patience, and understand that the earliest versions of the software are going to be very buggy and very problematic. Therefore they are the ones that smooth out the rough edges, before the beta testers get it.

I'm assuming I'm a beta tester as I only joined yesterday!

If you are an alpha tester you should join the alpha test group.
If you’re a beta tester you should join the beta test group.
But you should not join both groups.

But which subgroup are we supposed to be joining? And if everyone is joining both, what is the point of the subgroups? Just asking, because I’m still a bit confused.

Chuck,



Thanks for explaining this. Yes, you're right that those wanting to post to the FlickType alpha and beta subgroups must subscribe to them. You can do so by sending a blank email to:



Alpha subgroup: alpha+subscribe@flicktype.groups.io

Beta subgroup: beta+subscribe@flicktype.groups.io



The links following subgroup and colon above are live and should generate a new email in your email client when executed. Simply send that message and you'll receive a confirmation message which you must reply to in order to confirm your subscription to the subgroup.



I think messages posted to flicktype@groups.io will show as being sent to hello@flicktype.groups.io but I'm not positive of this. When I tried posting to hello@flicktype.groups.io, I thought I got an error message.



I'm sure Kosta or Ashley will chime in with some more direction on how they want the list to proceed with posting to the subgroups.

Hello Alan,

When I send an email to the email address that begins with hello, it ends up coming back to hear.



When I send an email to the email address that begins with beta, it goes to the beta sub group, and is sent back to my email address.

I m not sure what this proves, but I think everybody who wants to be on the new beta list will have to subscribe at the website.

Hi Alan,
I tried to email you on the other post that you just left, and it said that it was an invalid address. So I am trying you on this post.
This is where I went to find a sub groups:

Hi List,
Okay, I'm still scratching my head a bit. I posted the below message
as explained in order to test posting to the subgroups. I got back
three Delivery Status Notification Failure messages from the Mail
Delivery Subsystem for each message sent to alpha, beta, and hello
followed by @flicktype.groups.io. The failure message contained the following:
Message not delivered
Your message couldn't be delivered to <mailto:alpha@flicktype.groups.io> alpha@flicktype.groups.io
because the remote server is misconfigured. See technical details
below for more information.
The response from the remote server was:
510 5.1.1 Your email address, <mailto:@walemly> @walemly, is not subscribed to
that group.
However, the cc: sent to <mailto:flicktype@groups.io> flicktype@groups.io did come through as the
below message I believe to which I'm now replying. I'm confused because the To:
address in this message to which I replied is
<mailto:hello@flicktype.groups.io> hello@flicktype.groups.io which didn't seem to work when I typed it
in directly. I don't believe I made a typo but anything is possible.
Hopefully, Kosta or Ashley or someone with more experience with
subgroups in Groups.io can chime in with some guidance.

Subject: [flicktype] Test message to Flicktype subgroups and former
group address
Hi List,
I'm still learning about subgroups on Groups.io but I'm testing
sending a message to the new alpha and beta subgroups Kosta wrote about earlier today.
I'm not sure if we have to join these subgroups or if everyone
already in the main FlickType group was automatically added. I also
am unclear why the former < <mailto:flicktype@groups.io> mailto:flicktype@groups.io>
<mailto:flicktype@groups.io> flicktype@groups.io address no longer works since it was the master
group but Kosta's message below seems to imply that general group
messages should go to < <mailto:hello@flicktype.groups.io> mailto:hello@flicktype.groups.io>
<mailto:hello@flicktype.groups.io> hello@flicktype.groups.io which sounds like another subgroup.
This test message was sent to the three subgroups of alpha, beta, and
hello in the To: field and to the original main group of flicktype in the CC:
field in order to see what happens.
