Well since they dont plan on having the ads sent out in the emails, I have setup a newsletter that you can sign up for and recieve the ad scans as an attachment in your emails. This should make it easy for you to find if the ads get pulled from the website. I called it BFemails for Black Friday Emails, and dont worry its strictly black friday ad scans and no spam.

Great Idea

Postby crizza » Sun Sep 07, 2008 9:32 pm

Great job setting that up. I popped in a couple weeks ago for my first time of the year and popped back in again tonight just to find out there was already an ad in and a C&D already sent out. Fortunantly for me I don't see myself sitting in front of Ace Hardware all night.

Same thing here, although the ad wasn't hard to find elsewhere and nothing interesting.
I know emails were sent out last year as ads were posted, I guess we have to sign up again this year for emails.

As for the idea of emailing the actual ad, I'd say that's entering into a legal grey area. Also, there are probably some folks (not me) that are still on dial-up and they wouldn't want large email attachments, but would like emails to know if an ad is posted.

I'm pretty sure the C&D letters are filed under the DMCA, which doesn't allow for preemptive C&D letters to be sent, which means they'd have to send a new letter every year after their ad showed up on the site.

Love this idea. Last year I'd get the email at work or while I was away on the weekend, come home, and the ad would be gone! This is a great idea. Thanks for the post. I hope this comes through!

UPDATE

Postby MikesTooLz » Mon Oct 06, 2008 12:54 pm

I got some bad news and some good news.

First the bad news, I have moved my webservers to a new location and in turn also switched to a new mailing list type that is a lot better as far as creating the emails and managing the groups. This means that if you had already registered for the black friday ad scan emails than you will have to register agian. I will try to manualy transfer over the people that have already registered but to be on the safe side I would just register agian, it only takes a few seconds.


Now for the good news, you havnt missed out on any of the ad scan emails. Thats because there havnt been any yet, I personaly was expecting to see some by now. I'm itching for the ads just like the rest of you and checking into bfads.net daily.

Page can not be found

When trying to subscribe to the bfemails today, the page redirect (when clicking the Go button) results in a "The page cannot be found".

thanks

Nice idea. For those who don't want to go the email route, the adscans usually end up zipped up and posted to torrent trackers as they begin to leak. It's an anonymous option for those paranoid among us. ;)
