BIBY email - did anyone get one from me?

Hey guys

I sent an email out to BIBY members yesterday(note you have to be a member of the whole site, not just the forum to have received it). I am not 100% sure that it went out so I was just wanting to check if anyone got it.

Cheers
Holly

Hi Holly,

I did not get anything from you - I think I am a member of the whole site as I have received survey requests before.

Thanks Alison - I am not sure what happened. I didn't want to send it again just in case it did go through and people got multiple copies. Will have it investigated.

Okay, no problems. I will wait with bated (or baited) breath - just like a sea-eagle!!

I did not receive an email either. Though how do you know if you're a member of the whole site or just the forum? I assumed they would've been the same.

The forum was set up as a late addition Amateur and so it has a separate log in at the moment (not sure why but thats what they did) - the new site will ensure that one log in gets you onto the forum and the rest of the site (for submitting surveys)

Aramita it ended up going out on Friday - you didn't get it?

Hmmm, seems there is another bug there somewhere as some who had already unsubscribed got it but others who are members don't seem to have...

This website business is tricky!

Hi Holly we didn't get it yet either. Marie-Louise, maybe it's only for the special people and not us LOL.

LOL you are all special :)

No idea what is going on, its a real pain though! Anyway, this is what I sent out:

Greetings Birds in Backyards Members

Thank you to all who participated in our recent member survey. We had a great response with 2,670 members completing the survey. We are currently busy analysing all of your responses, but in the mean time we can announce the winners of the prize draw for 3 Birds Australia memberships. Congratulations to David from the ACT, Brian from Victoria, and Alicia from Queensland. Your membership packs will be on their way to you shortly.
The results of the survey and the research it is part of will be disseminated later this year.
I hope that you also enjoyed the EagleCAM ‘News from the Nest’ that you received last week. Don’t forget to watch it live: http://www.ustream.tv/seaeagles.

I realise it has been a long time since you heard from me, but I have been busy working behind the scenes on some big projects for Birds in Backyards. We will soon be launching a new Birds in Backyards website with some exciting new features: there will be videos, a gallery of gardens to inspire you, and more information about how to help your local birdlife.

Your wonderful bird surveys will also receive a face-lift. Birds Australia’s involvement with the Atlas of Living Australia (http://www.ala.org.au) will mean that you will be able to get instant feedback on the data you submit and it will contribute to the largest biological database in Australia. The Atlas of Living Australia is a national initiative focused on making Australia’s biodiversity information more accessible and useable online. It is a partnership between CSIRO, a number of Australian natural history collections, and the Australian Government.

I also wanted to let you know of some big changes to Birds Australia, our parent organisation. Birds Australia and Bird Observation & Conservation Australia (BOCA) are merging to form a new organisation called BirdLife Australia, to be launched in 2012. Through BirdLife Australia we will integrate our conservation, research, education and members programs to be more effective over a wider range of activities. We will form the biggest national bird conservation organisation in Australia with a membership of over 10,000 and an increased presence in all States and Territories. As we work towards BirdLife Australia’s operational start date of January 2012, both Birds Australia and BOCA will continue to focus on delivery of our key areas of work as well as beginning to amalgamate operations.

It is an exciting time for Birds in Backyards and for Birds Australia and I look forward to sharing the journey with you all. I will be in touch again soon to let you know when the new website is active and to share more about what we have been up to. Please note that the new website will remain at http://www.birdsinbackyards.net and your membership will carry over automatically.

Cheers
Holly
