Already a year and several months have past since hardware failure beset nudge.online and pushed the Grammar Captive project into the software Dark Ages. At the time the ability to send copies of the Seven Gates newsletter to Grammar Captive newbies was indefinitely suspended. As there were still no podcasts, there was little need for the newsletter, and the entire routine of account sign-up, sender confirmation, visitor verification, and automated delivery of the first edition of the Seven Gates newsletter was left to languish. As there is renewed hope for an upcoming launch, this routine has been restored along with several improvements:
- The first newsletter can now be received in either of five languages including Arabic, English, French, German, or Japanese.
- New account holders automatically receive the first edition of the Seven Gates newsletter in the language that he or she declares as native. If one’s tongue is not Arabic, French, German, or Japanese, the default language is English.
- There are now two newsletter formats: one for viewing the newsletter in one’s browser window on one’s computer, and one for viewing it in one’s inbox on one’s smartphone.
- Both newsletter formats accommodate bidirectional text. Thus, an Arabic reader may comfortably read from right to left, and a Japanese visitor can read from left to right.
It is good to be producing useful user content again.
