Hi all,

If you ticked the "Monthly NewTek newsletter" in the My Profile section of your account, you should find that you've received an announcement of the LightWave newsletter. ;)

Nope...

not yet anyway.

I've always had issues being subscribed to Newtek newsletters. I have become unsubscribed so many times. I keep adding myself... got myself swiped at Siggraph and filled in the questionnaire, but still i don't seem to get them in my inbox!!

I use hotmail, but no serious spam filters!

Odd ... no where in my User CP pages do I have that option. I do, however have interesting fields like "Enter the first letter of our company 'NewTek' and a message stating I can't chnage my email address without filling out the 'optional' biography section. :screwy:

That's the first place i went to look too. But it's the one under your registration and download page that has the tick box!

Neither do I. I have never received a newsletter from Newtek, even though any time I've seen the option I've said yes. I get a newsletter from New Magic (the Australian distributors), but nothing from Newtek... I'll just go sulk in the corner now.

I've received a small number of them, last one I can remember was an announcement a day before the site revamp.


EDIT: Oops, I forgot to ask, what is this one about? :D

EDIT 2: Nevermind, I just got the email. Awesome.

Hehe. ;) Sorry about that. I'm sure you'll get it soon!!


I like the format, and content. No complaints here! It's pretty nice to have something like that, especially coupled with the new website.

Great job BeeVee! :thumbsup:

Okay, just checked and all the mails went out. If you didn't get it, check you have the box ticked in your profile on your account on http://register.newtek.com and also that your spam filter hasn't gobbled it up.

Definitely ticked the box... like i said, i have signed up countless times but always seem to get left off. I get emails through from viagra people every bloody day, but when i want an email, it maybe gets blocked.

Any other way i can get the email? If i unblock it will it get sent again?

I just checked and I'm ticked. Email account has nothing in spam.

NewTek doesn't love me anymore. :cry:

Well gosh darnit, the newsletter is here: http://www.lightwave3d.com/newsletter.php

Please anyone that didn't get the mail that should have drop me a line to [email protected] and I'll try to sort it for the next one.

Just dropped you a line about getting my name on the list. Thanks for any help.

Just makes me worry a bit, that this newsletter is only making it out to some people. How many people may have signed up for this at siggraph who weren't Lightwave users but a newsletter like this could make them buy?!

Anyway, had a look and it's brilliant... love all the plugging of lightwave in actual film production!

Thanks Tim, the newsletter will always be on the website, so it will only be the announcement of the newsletter that you miss, but you're right - I am calling on anyone who expected it and didn't get it, but checked their spam filter to send me mail to [email protected]

Nice work Ben.
Thanks for the speed modelling plug :thumbsup:

A 0.5 release-featuring-new-fur-system will be a hard month to follow so no padding with kitten stories!

Im not bothered so much about receiving it myself... just that as a marketing thing, it should get to everyone who has ever signed up to newtek. I swiped my card at siggraph and constantly get spam from everyone who i spoke to at siggy, apart from Newtek. I'd love some newtek spam to make it through to my work machine. (Especially as my boss would get it too)
