Important. Please Read.
We expect a resolution by Saturday afternoon. Please check back then.
Due to the unprecedented interest in the text service (800 recipients in just four hours and climbing), tatango (service provider) has notified us that we are no longer eligible to use the free service. It was our intent to send out roughly 25 texts (one for each commitment, give or take) to an estimated 2,000 recipients. That would be 50,000 text messages.
The largest plan Tatango offers is 2,000 messages at $150/mo. We would need a plan to accommodate something 25X as large. That would come to $6,000, though I'm sure they would maybe knock it down to something far less. As you know, Tomahawk Nation is a free site. We are committed to keeping it that way, but we cannot afford to drop cash on one day of text messaging.
You do not need to do anything. No need to unsubscribe or anything. I will automatically delete the group and your information.
So for now, the text service is very much in limbo. If anyone here has any leads on a free site to accommodate such massive volume, please let us know.
We look at this as a testament to the massive, rabid fanbase we have at TN. And we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
In the meantime, please do make sure to follow us on twitter!
For those of you who are too old or cool for twitter, you should know that you do not have to use your name to get a twitter account. You can have one, say "Noles4Life22" that nobody will know belongs to you. So go ahead and sign up for one and follow us!
