Re: emails/subscriptions yet

I like the idea of email subs.
I second that.
But it's wonderful to have the forums as they are now anyway, off course.

Thanks...

I know amaravati is on retreat, but I don't think all of them are
I tried with Amaravati, as you guessed :thumbsup:, and supposed that with the others would be the same. I'll try with another one. Thanks again!

Mario, Planning and preparation...for what?...if you want to stay at WPN, just get yourself a visa and go...if you're earnest, and convey that earnestness to them, they won't turn you away...
