Feature request: mass-mail to subscribers

I have just realised how many people have subscribed to me (over 370!).

Since they have taken a special interest in me, I feel I ought to be able to reward them somehow.

I would like to be able to send a message to all my subscribers at once, giving them advance notice of ibles etc, to let them get first chance to comment or suggest improvements before I publish it to the general public.

Update: the majority of replies seem to be in favour or neutral.

(For instance, I currently have two projects awaiting publication that are complete enough for useful comments to be made, but not complete enough to publish properly.)

Would you have liked the chance to comment on a project a few hours before everybody else? Or to be able to contribute to it before it is published?

Or maybe you want to publish a project that is unavailable to the wider public because it does not meet the site's usual family-friendly standards?

Or am I giving the concept of subscribers more significance than I ought?

Yes?

Forum topics are supposed to go out to your subscribers, so you could simply post a forum topic with the unpublished URL. However, I'm not certain forum topics are actually going out in the subscriptions, so I'll look into fixing that.

That's not what I meant - if I posted a forum topic, anybody could look at the project.

I was meaning giving a preview only to those who are subscribed.
OK, I've got it now, and will consider.

Cool. No rush, though - you've probably got a long list.

As long as it can be implemented with some sort of fail-safe that keeps SPAMMERS from getting the upper hand with the mass mailing system....
