ATS recap is right there on the home page of the forum, big as day. Nobody can miss that.
The radio show has a banner at the bottom of the page when its on. Again, its really hard to miss. If people don't know about these things then shame
An announcement U2U for new features like these is appropriate to let the members know what's coming but, a new U2U every time a new episode comes
out is a bit intrusive IMO.
There are other ways to advertize this stuff without sending out mass spam U2Us every time a new episode comes out. It may be easy to delete them
without reading them but, with some of the slow browsers out there, this can be really time consuming for some people. We don't all have Fios
Also, we may overlook the really important announcememts if we become accustomed to deleting mass U2Us. There is such a thing as overusing the system.
Its the "boy who called wolf"; after a while, nobody listens anymore and when you have something REALLY important that needs to be put out, people
are likely to ignore it.
Save the mass U2Us for important messages.
