    Mac-Forums Newsletter Sign-Up
    Hello all. A few members mentioned not receiving the Mac-Forums newsletter...and we have been investigating how to get those members signed up.

    We are pleased to announce that a Mac-Forums Newsletter sign-up link has been added to the bottom/footer of any Mac-Forums page:

    - Click on the "Mac-Forums Newsletter Sign-Up" link.
    - A window will open.
    - Fill in all appropriate info.
    - Click the "Subscribe Now" button.

    ...and you're good to go.

    If you accidentally unsubscribed from the newsletter...this is also a great way to get re-subscribed.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, Nick

    For those using the Brave browser - the sign up link does not work, probably because it's a pop-up or considered an ad.
    So one needs to log in with a different browser that doesn't block the pop-up and sign up that way.

    @krs

    I don't think it's a pop-up.

    Look to the very bottom of any page - this one for example. You'll see this:

    @Ian:

    I think "krs" is referring to the dialog that pops up when you click on the Mac-Forums Newsletter Sign Up listed under Consumer Tech. It shows up for me and I have several pop up blockers loaded both in Safari and Chrome.

    Ah. Sorry. Thank you.

    Also worked fine for me, although I was getting these newsletters, I signed up again

    I have AdGuard on.

    No popup on Brave (with nothing extra) and Chrome (with uBlock Origin/Ghostery). Had to go to Safari (with no extensions at all) to get the pop-up to show up.

    When I click on the link that Nick pointed to, Mac-Forums Newsletter Sign-up, it just takes me back to this thread if I'm on Brave
    If I'm on FireFox I get the pop-up where I can add my email and register for the newsletter, but Brave blocks that registration window.
    Looked like a 'pop-up' to me - maybe Brave thinks it's an ad an therefore blocks it. I mentioned that possibility in my post as well.
    I was just providing a 'heads up' for people who use Brave.

    Thanks for mentioning this Ian.

    Please let us know if anything unusual happens on your end (such as receiving two copies of the same newsletter issue). Lol

    Thanks,

    - Nick

    p.s. If you do get 2 copies...too bad...you "poked the bear"!
