Listserv Descriptions

If you are interested in changing subscriber lists, notify our hospitality committee at info@saywhatclub.org.  Subscribers may join one general list, as well as the Cochlear Implant list, and our Facebook groups. Read over our Facebook and List Descriptions to determine which best suits your needs.

Forum

The Forum is SayWhatClub’s first list and most active list. It maintains an international flair with members currently from across the US, Canada, India, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico.  The diverse interests of Forum members exemplify that people with hearing loss can enjoy busy, fulfilling lives. We discuss an infinite variety of topics including hearing loss, and express a variety of opinions, but are always respectful of one another’s opinion. Many of our members feel a sense of family about the Forum and our posts are often characterized by warmth, wit, and sensitivity.  There are some days when many messages are exchanged and other days when maybe everyone is busy and no messages are forthcoming.

Vistas

THE VISTAS LIST WILL ACCOMMODATE YOUR NEED FOR CAPITAL LETTERS IF YOU HAVE USHERS SYNDROME OR LOW VISION.  THOUGH MOST VISTANS DO NOT HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THEIR VISION, THIS LIST DEMONSTRATES A COMMITMENT TO INCLUSION RARELY FOUND IN OTHER ONLINE COMMUNITIES.  EXPECT TO RECEIVE ABOUT TWO EMAILS PER DAY.

World

World members strike a nice balance between discussion about hearing loss and a variety of other topics unrelated to hearing loss. Many of World’s subscribing members have had hearing loss from a young age.  World participants offer a wealth of experience and insight about hearing loss challenges.  On average, they post about four messages per day.

Connect

Connect has more subscribers under age forty than our other lists, though there is no age limit.  They also tend to focus more on hearing loss topics than other general lists. This is a warm and supportive list that avoids controversy.  Expect two emails per day.

Cochlear Implant (CI)

The cochlear implant list focuses on all phases of the cochlear implant process — cochlear implant features, cochlear implant surgery, qualifying for a cochlear implant, listening practice, and new technological improvements to cochlear implants.   If you have a cochlear implant or are interested in learning more about cochlear implants, this is a great place to get first-hand information from others who wear cochlear implants.  The cochlear implant list is our most active special focus list and generates about four emails per day.
