About Gerard’s newer site

Here’s the link to Gerard’s newer site. Unlike with this original site, Gerard left no instructions for me. I’m also unfamiliar with the platform there, so I’ve been learning the ropes of navigating the back pages.

I’m fairly sure I’ll be canceling that site some time within the next two weeks because it costs money to maintain, and in the meantime I won’t be posting anything new there anyway. I believe that, when I cancel it, all the paid subscriptions will automatically stop. I sent the site an email asking whether that’s the case, and I have yet to hear from the people in charge.

But till then, I noticed these instructions:

Portal makes it easy for your members to manage their subscription directly from your publication. Once they’re logged in, members can edit their name and email address, change or cancel their plan, update credit card information, and control their newsletter subscriptions.

Sorry for the delay, but there have been a lot of tasks – sad tasks – connected with all of this.

    My brother died the same week as Gerard, and I’m the one handling his estate, which does not include anything at all online. That would be an extra complication.

    I understand the immensity of the tasks that need taken care of.

    It’s easy for me to say, since I have no contact with his new site, but take the time you need to do the things you can, at your own pace.

    I cancelled my subscription there ca. first week of February. Doing so was so simple that I cannot recall anything about the process except that I just did it and it took all of (I guess) 60 seconds.

    It won’t be hard for anyone to unsubscribe. Just take things nice and slow, read around, click around until you find what you need to do and then just do it. Don’t Panic.

    Neo, how much money does it cost to maintain? Maybe we could chip in for another six months of life so we can take a couple more laps around the track. Meanwhile, I’ll be going there to make sure I’ve read and re-read everything so that it feels like Gerard is not fading away so fast….

    Please give us the one-day warning before you shut down New American Digest. I will make a point of unsubscribing so I don’t have to count on an automatic stop to my subscription.

    Thanks for all your work tidying up, thanks for the open threads…

    Just unsubscribed. I know the light was already off but now I’ve regretfully closed the door. Nothing left to see anyway … but I kept hoping my eyes would adjust to the dark.

      We should all light a candle and give a helping hand.

    I cancelled my account at New American Digest and found that it means it will not renew when the current subscription expires in September 2023. Good enough – it will remain active until then or until NAD is taken down. I feel better having explicitly unsubscribed rather than relying on them to automatically cancel the subscription. Still adjusting to Gerard’s departure.
