Yes we can! (I'm quite technically ready for it)
BUT we need to find a good and short text about RS and this special 10th birthday !
What do you (all) suggest ?

Quick first draft by me:

A whole decade! Yes, Robostrike is up and running for 10 years now. That's the longest lifetime of a free multiplayer flashgame ever. January, the 3rd will be our great anniversary day.

We invite you all to come and join the party!
http://robostrike.com

For all of those, who got lost over time, use the opportunity to meet old friends and see how RS has devlopped.

See you on Tuesday!
RS team


Short enough?
Easy enough to understand for non-native-speakers?
Date clear enough?
Enough information?

I hope that some others will write suggestions too! :)

We need a french translation of the message in the same mail (like in the first mail to register). Your message is perfect Dharo, i like it a lot ! Maybe the word "decade" is not so easy to understand. But the rest is ok.

Here the french translation (not word to word).

"Robostrike à 10 ans. Et oui, déjà ! Voilà une décennie entière que le jeu existe et ça continue. Une durée de vie record pour un jeu flash gratuit multijoueurs et en ligne. Le 3 janvier c'est la date d'anniversaire officielle !

Alors pour l'occasion, nous vous invitons tous à rejoindre la fête !
http://www.robostrike.com/fr

Après toutes ces années, voilà une opportunité de revoir tous nos vieux amis une fois encore en appréciant toutes les dernières évolutions de la version 4 de Robostrike.

On compte sur vous pour être présent !
L'équipe Robostrike."

This mail must be send quickly i think. Chris, your the chief of this operation. Ask them if you need a quick help today. I'am ready !

"Robostrike à 10 ans" => Sans l'accent sur le a ça srait mieux
"Le 3 janvier c'est la date d'anniversaire officielle !" => le officielle me semble de trop :x
"tous nos vieux amis" => vos au lieu de nos me parait mieux

The 3rd of january was the registration of the DNS www.robostrike.com , the game came a little later. But nervermind, this is probably not the best date for an online meeting ;) because people are back to work or back to school today (and we're not totally ready for the mailing ... shame on us!).
To avoid to be flagged as a spammer, we can't send 30 000 mails at one time, we'll have to send them progressively (ex 1000/2000 per day). So I suggest we don't give a unique date to everybody but for instance "tomorrow at 9pm", I don't know what would be the best meeting hour and the best date to start this action.
Maybe it would be worth testing the mailing effects on some players, before sending to all?

Good news : we can also send different mails depending on the user's language in RS DB.

So I suggest some little changes starting from Dharo's message:

Robostrike 10th birthday!
Yes, Robostrike is up and running for 10 years now. That's one of the longest lifetime of a free multiplayer flashgame ever. January 2012 will be our great anniversary month.

We invite you all to come and join the party from 6 to 9pm!

See you soon back on Robostrike!

We also need to provide a unsubscribe and remind password link (I'm working on it)

Anniversary month... I like that!

Maybe we should add CET to the times in the mail?

For the test-run: We should know the receipients to ask them for feedback, shouldn't we? (Or run it on modos only? ^^)
