As you may or may not have noticed, we’ve had some glitches with KRCC’s daily Big Something emails and we appreciate your patience with us. We’re pleased to let you know that we’ve just moved our email list to Copilot Creative, a local provider with the benefit of lovely, actual humans to help us work out the kinks if they arise.

That said, we apologize in advance if you unsubscribed from our list and find yourself receiving The Big Something email from us again. If you want to unsubscribe it’s easy: you can either click the unsubscribe button at the bottom the email you received or you can send us an email with “unsubscribe” in the subject line to thebigsomething@krcc.org. The only reason we have your email address is if you gave it to us during a fund drive when you called in to make a pledge to KRCC, or if you subscribed to our list online.

If you’ve signed up to receive either the daily or digest version of The Big Something email and suddenly stopped receiving it, it’s probably because our emails got caught in your SPAM filter. One way to help avoid this problem is to add thebigsomething@krcc.org and delaney@krcc.org to your contact list.

Beyond these technical issues, it’s our intention to continue to bring you great, locally produced stories, slide shows, videos, and ideas that explore the hidden treasures, forgotten histories and overlooked corners of the Pikes Peak Region in a way that only public media can.

We’d also like to reiterate that many of our great story ideas and the photographs we feature on The Big Something each day come directly from you, our readers and viewers. We hope you always feel free to send us story ideas to thebigsomething@krcc.org.

Please also consider joining our KRCC Flickr Photo Pool (complete instructions). For those of you who are already members, please remember to send your photos to the group by clicking on the photo you want to share with the KRCC group and then click on the “Actions” menu and select “Add to a Group” and then choose KRCC. If you want your pictures considered for the email, we also recommend going into “Your Account,” clicking on the “Privacy and Permissions” tab and then, under “What license will your content have,” click “edit” and choose “Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Creative Commons” so we can download your pictures and more easily put them in the emails.
