Bergental’s New Mailing List!

So, as some of you may know, I’ve been struggling rather hard in
adhering to East Kingdom policy and moving away from third party
sources. While I know it’s been met with grisly hatred and Viking
battles to the death, it is, alas, fate.

As the webminister, I have added a Forum for discussions, but I also
needed to create a mailing list. This Yahoo Group is not official and
not recognized by the East Kingdom, and they have provided the means to
make a mailing group.

For this reason, some of you may have gotten emails about being signed
up for the new mailing list. I transferred the list of members from this
group to that one— painstakingly copy and pasting each one, one by
one, for the many hundreds of members. (Then, just before I was about
to save the changes, my browser almost crashed. I almost wrestled a
yeti in despair.)

I have not completed the mailing list yet, and I do not have most of the
details yet. I am working with Perronelle to fix some issues.

You can head here:
to sign up if not already signed up and view the basic information about
it. The “archives” are
http://bergental.eastkingdom.org/pipermail/baronyofbergental/, which
currently only has one person who has tested it out.

Using the mailing list is really easy. Use your normal email account,
Yahoo or whatever, and send an email to
baronyofbergental@bergental.eastkingdom.org. You can save it as a
Contact to make it easier. I already made accounts for the officers of
Bergental, even though many of them still haven’t gotten their accounts
set up yet (such as the Seneschal and the Valley Pursuivant, and others.
You guys probably have a lot of unread emails waiting for you there…
send me an email at webminister@bergental.eastkingdom.org to set one up
if you haven’t yet.

I will update everyone on the status and ins and outs of the mailing
list aside from what I’ve explained here as soon as I can.

New Website and Mailing List

Greetings unto the fair populace of Bergental!

For those that do not know me I am Madame Perronnelle de Croy, the Shire of Quintavia’s webminister and a Webminister-at-large (read: general dogsbody). For the past week or so I have been assisting the Barony’s web team tin transitioning the Baronial website to wordpress and do a number of updates. The site is now up and running at the same address: bergental.eastkingdom.org with a new look and new pages coming forthwith.

I would like to ask if anyone has past editions of the Berserker hanging around that they could email me so that they can be added to the site. I will also be creating a photo gallery. If you would like to have your photos included please be sure to fill out the photo release form and email that to me with links to your own galleries or images.

There will be another change coming, though if all goes as planned, it will hardly affect you. We will be moving away from yahoo groups to a mailing list on the EK server. You will still have access to the archives and, if that doesn’t suit, in time there will be a yahoo group type forum hosted on the Bergental site, with email notices, just like Yahoo.

When the time comes, you will receive a subscription notice to Barony_of_Bergental@bergental.eastkingdom.org. It will not be a fluke and shortly thereafter file migration from yahoo groups to our server will have begun. This is all in keeping with the East Kingdom Webministry’s move to get away from third-party providers like Yahoo groups. I will publish additional news on the blog on the website as I get it.

There are also a few new features to the Baronial website! A google calendar is on the front page announcing events, practices, & meetings. To add events contact your webminister, Baronness Emma, or Lady Bianca. In addition there is also a Facebook thing and a set of links for newcomers. I will be adding a mailing list sign up there on the front page as well.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask! —
