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, 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
  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!

    The last email was January 30, 2014. I just caught it in my spam folder after reading this. Thanks for the details!
