Make Sure You’re Still Getting the Jackrabbit Speaks!

Hi there!  Has it been a while since you’ve opened a Jackrabbit Speaks?  Did you miss the last few (very pretty, graphical) editions?

There could be a reason for that.  We recently changed email service providers, which may have created confusion for your email filters. Here’s what’s changed:

  1. While the JRS still comes from the email address jackrabbitspeaks here: jackrabbitspeaks (at) burningman.com, the NAME the email comes from is now “Burning Man” (for a number of years it was Will Chase –and yes, he’s still writing them).
  2. The email address the JRS is sent TO is now YOUR email address (it was bman-announce here: bman-announce (at) burningman.com).
  3. The subject line now reads “The Jackrabbit Speaks” (where it used to say [BMmanUpdate]).

So, if you didn’t receive a JRS this month, it’s possible your beloved JRS is sitting — lonely, sad, abandoned (*sniff*) — in your SPAM folder or was filtered off to God-knows-where, and you might need to update your email filters.

Apologies for the inconvenience. We look forward to continuing to serve you with our newfangled graphical JRS.

– The Jackrabbits

  • “Graphical Edition” HTML e-mail. I liked the skillfully decorated plain text ones. I don’t allow images to load in my e-mail.

    All the URL’s in the JRS are now tracking URL’s. Why does everything have to be analyzed?

  • I like the new format a lot. But the roll out was terribly timed! The issue that announced the 2014 ticketing? Really? I was so lucky to catch it in an obscure file labeled Promotions, where I normally never look.
    Please let us know on FaceBook when the next JRS goes out so I know to go a-hunting for it!
