Bart De Vos shared a link to the SE newsletter page:


Oops! He shared his confirmation link.

I got the message: "Thank you for signing up for the Stack Overflow Newsletter! You will receive the newsletter every Tuesday." which is a little confusing as it subscribed him, not me.

I then proceeded to sign him up for the Christianity and German Language Newsletters by clicking the 'Subscribe' button after opening up the link in a private browsing window.


Good LOLs

    Don't worry, I just signed him up for the rest of them.

    There are 78 Stack Exchange sites. I predict that Bart will have a lot of email to read shortly...

    Also, you can edit the day (&day=dayofweek), why is that? Does it mean I'll be getting my Japanese Language and Usage Newsletter on monday now? Jan 24, 2012 at 19:19

This is by design: manage-your-newsletters links are like manage-your-craigslist-post links – they shouldn't be shared.

(We have, however, disabled the particular link shared in this question, to prevent further any further unwanted changes to Bart De Vos's subscriptions.)

  • He'll probably be happy to hear that :)
