Can I use a listserv address to invite contributors?

  1. I have created a private blog (http://loveitshoveit3015.wordpress.com/) to use in my class. I need to invite all the students to join it as contributors. Can I use the class list-serv mailing list to send out invites? or do I need to invite each person individually?

  2. If you’d like to invite others to publish posts or help approve comments on your blog, you can invite them to be a Contributor, Editor, or Author http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/ on your blog by following this guide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/ To prevent spammers from doing their dirty work you can only send out 10 invitations at a time and then wait and send out 10 more.

  3. this is not really responsive.

    I've looked through the documentation and understand how to add individual users. I am asking if I can send an invitation to a listserv address; the listserv has about 40 members, but if I can use it, I will send ONE invitation, to the group address.

    Please respond to this question.

  4. If you want to use the listserve then that has nothing to so with us here.

  5. I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you're telling me. I have read this documentation, and I understand I can only enter ten people's names/addresses at a time. I am asking you if I can enter a listserv address--- yes, more than ten people, but through ONE address-- to CONTRIBUTE to a private blog.

    If I enter a listserv address, will the invitation be distributed to all the people on the list, or must I enter individual addresses for each would-be contributor?

    I don't know and I have flagged this thread for a Staff response.

  7. Here is the answer: No.

    Because the posting permissions are tied to the individual log-ins, and the log-ins are tied to emails, if you Invite the listserv, only the administrator of the Listserv will be able to post.

    You will need to invite them individually.

  8. Thank you! I wish that were not the case, but I understand it.

    That's what I thought too. Thanks for the confirmation.
