Further development

CastAgent and the main site now have the ability to send email to our cast and crew with updates that are pertinent to them in the production process.

With this functionality, CastAgent, for example, will be able to keep an auditioning volunteer in the loop as to what’s going on with their audition.  For cast members, it will notify them when another chapter has been published that contains their assigned character.  It’s all in the name of keeping people up to date with what’s going on.

Now it bears mentioning that the site, CastAgent, and yours-truly will not be sending out “newsletters”.  That’s what these main page updates are for, and they are available through their own RSS subscription if you want them sent to you.  The only communication anybody should receive from this site should be for the specific following reasons:

  • Automated confirmation emails for user registration or lost password request
  • Notices generated by forum post thread subscriptions
  • CastAgent notice to a user generated in response to a new volunteer’s submission or change in volunteer’s audition status
  • CastAgent notices to cast members generated by new chapter publication which contains their characters
  • A direct reply from me to a question or comment received either through the Contact form, or direct email to info@childrenofthegods.net or support@childrenofthegods.net

In short, unless you are making changes to your account, subscribed to the news feed, or are asking for the communications in the first place (which should be considered to be implied in the case of auditioning volunteers or new releases for existing cast members), you will not be spammed or otherwise barraged with a whole side-channel of content.

If you have any questions, comments or problems with this functionality, please don’t think twice about.. err… sending an email to info@childrenofthegods.net.
