Newsletters no longer trigger if "New members" is the only content

Posted .

How it used to work

Newsletters used to trigger for three kinds of activity:
  • New posts
  • New replies to existing posts
  • New members
If any of these categories has content, then a newsletter sends. If there is no activity in these categories - then no newsletter sends. 


Members of community said that triggering a newsletter only for "New members" was low value. 

So, I've changed the behavior so that newsletters will no longer send if "New members" is the only content.

Now, the newsletter will wait to trigger until there's a new post or reply. Then, that new newsletter will include all members since the last newsletter (so there's no information lost).

What do you think?
