    Lightbulb Don't know what do to with my Proxy Google Group

    Hello Proxy owners,

    I have built a proxy Google groups called best proxies. In about a year I have acquired almost 3000 subscribers, but now I am thinking of scaling down on proxy biz as I do not longer have the time to send out a proxy a day from Monday to Friday.

    I don't know what to do with my proxy group. If I permit all members to post then I fear the Google groups could be spammed. Moreover, most subscribers have chosen to get an email whenever a post has been approved.

    This could be changed to daily digest, (and posts be moderated) but the problem is that new subscribers will likely choose email delivery type and and get various proxy messages a day. This, in turn, raises chances that proxies posted will end up being considered Spam, or lead to members unsubscribe.

    What do you think is best for my proxy group and its subscribers?

    I've not had a lot to do with google groups myself (yet) but I believe you can do posts from emails, i.e. send an email to the group and have it post automatically. You might have to set up another manger account or something though. Then you could set your proxy listing sites to post new proxies to subscribers (set a cron job I think) and subscribe your groups email to it.

    That way you would keep sending new proxies to the group automatically every day, keeping the other subscribers happy (and subscribed) and may even increase the numbers if they get what they want, and all 'hands free' as it were. It may even increase in value too (fingers crossed).

    Just a thought.

    Or you could sell it as Zash suggested, or even auction it off somewhere to the highest bidder. I'm sure it would have some value to someone that wants such things. (just don't sell it to soldoni, I saw his dp post, what a dumba**)
    If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a terrible warning...

    Lacking a better solution I have recently been sending out the proxies submitted to my proxy sites proxies4u.com and proxynet.org.

    This way the subscribers of my Google group have a great choice of proxies.

    That's basically what I do, plus letting people give me their proxy URLs in a thread I have here which gets included in my group. I don't allow people to post directly into my Google group, to avoid the kind of problems you ran into. I also send my list out once per week so that I can keep the messages circulating without spending too much time.

    Vectro, actually I never had any problems but I wanted to maintain the quality of my proxy group. I indeed do almost like you had been doing for some time, expect for I have no Netbuilders thread for submitting proxies.

    To sum up: If you submit your proxy proxynet.org and proxies4u.com I will send your proxy also to my +3000 users proxy group (sending out an email Mo to Fr usually).
