As I wrote a while ago I wrote asking the robots politely why there was no banner and explaining that it was difficult to get the word out without that. Kathy’s reply puts paid to all our hopeful speculations that the lack of banner means it won’t actually close:
Yes, we are working on a site banner as well as an email, it’s just taking longer than expected. We’re also building a tool that will allow users to download their content.
Hopefully we'll be able to get this out to you this week.
Thanks for writing,
Email was dated 14/7 :(
Today I wrote to the robots (Kathy) explaining that we were struggling to get the word out and asking whether a banner would be put up, and if so when?
I did try to phrase it quite gently and politely though. From the Quora post going around I can’t help but think there’s no resources left at 43T, and no staff, so Kathy might be sending emails in her own time out of the goodness of her heart. That would mean there also isn’t anyone to design and upload a banner…Just speculation of course, I could be way off.
I just wanted to repost this because it worked for me and I want others to have the chance to use it. But I take no credit whatsoever for it- it came to me from RU via SPATZ so massive thanks to them and if anyone else is due credit please let me know!
