The Freegle website and app has some shiny new useful features:
- Please check out our community events listing here: https://www.ilovefreegle.org/communityevents
It's easy to add your own event - read these instructions.
- You can also list volunteer opportunities here: https://www.ilovefreegle.org/volunteering
- We also have a "news feed" for general chat about Freegle issues - useful for general advice or recommendations. It's on the Freegle home page at https://www.ilovefreegle.org/
Behind the scenes we've changed a couple of settings. You can now re-port WANTED messages after a week and messages auto-repeat a maximum of 5 times.
Deep behind the scenes our group currently still uses a Yahoo! Group. Very few posts come through Yahoo now and problems at Yahoo often delay posts, so we'll be switching off the Yahoo group soon. We're contacting the few people who only use Yahoo. If you have any difficulties please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't forget, Freegle is free to use but not free to run, so please chip in if you can: https://www.ilovefreegle.org/donate
Please remember to check our Welcome guidelines occasionally, in case we have some guideline changes that you have missed.
Thanks Chris, Freegle volunteer moderator
