Hey there, everyone! As many of you may have noticed, our current news article system automatically notifies you (through email) every time we post a brand new article to our website. Whether it be when we post all of our current news from the most recent paper, or we have a separate post during the week--a notification is sent; due to how many stories we have in the paper each week, we tend to post 25+ articles every Wednesday/Thursday, and each one sends out a notification through email.
For some of you, you may enjoy seeing which articles are being posted as we upload them--and that's great! But for others, this may not be exactly what you'd prefer to have happen...
If it were in our control, we would completely rework this system to better suit how we want to send out notifications for our news articles as soon as possible. Though as of now, we don't have that capability within our grasp for our current system. Hopefully in the near future we will have completely rebuilt and restructured our news and notification format...but for now, let us show you how you can currently unsubscribe from these notifications for the time being (if you haven't already).
We want to formally apologize to everyone who may have been inconvenienced by this feature, and we hope that this guide will help you in disabling these notifications (if you'd rather not have them sent to you).
Method 1: "Unsubscribe directly from your emails."
The easiest and most simple method to unsubscribe from our email notifications is by clicking the "unsubscribe" link within each email personally sent to you. At the bottom of each email (whether it be an article notification, a marketplace notification, a discussion/forum notification, etc.) is a link provided by the website to unsubscribe your email from any notifications sent from "MCKY - Meade County Kentucky" - (https://www.meadecountyky.com/). Once you click that link...ta-da! No more emails and you're unsubscribed from the notifications! It is possible to subscribe again through the website itself (within your account settings), but that's completely up to future you.
Method 2: "Unsubscribe directly through your personal account on the website."
The next method is very simple as well, it just requires you to be here on the website itself.
To begin, make sure you're signed into your personal account you have with us on MCKY, then head to this link (your account settings). Once there, you can control any notification settings available to you. The main toggle (which is the criminal mastermind behind sending out these notifications) is the "Blog Subscription - Receive emails about new posts and updates." section. Just click the big purple "Unsubscribe" button on the right side, and voila...just like that, you're unsubscribed. If you ever want to subscribe again in the future (in case we update the system or have any changes--or you just miss us) this is where to do it.
Method 3: "Email MCKY to manually unsubscribe your email/account."
Now I know I said the other methods were simple, but this one takes the cake. If you're having trouble unsubscribing or you're just not too tech savvy, we can handle it for you! Just send an email to MCKYNews@gmail.com containing your account email you signed up with, as well as a message letting us know that you're wanting to unsubscribe from our email notifications. It may take a day or two for us to process the request (depending on when you send the email), or it could be instant, but we'll manually unsubscribe you and you'll be all set up for the future!
If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us here at MCKY or The Meade County Messenger. We'd love to help with any issues you may be having, or any questions you may need to ask us. Just email MCKYNews@gmail.com with your query, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you so much!
