Thanks Carol. That's really useful. I like your approach and tone. Do you have any way of knowing the impact of these messages? (eg: how many of your users have signed up to Coil after seeing this prompt?)

Absolutely no success, unfortunately. (So maybe this message is something not to duplicate! Hah!) But, I've tried a variety of messages, with equally no success. I have basically no COIL traffic other than my own, even though I get (when school's on) about 80,000 users each month. Based on the affiliate program data, I have only one known person who converted to COIL (this is in over 6 months) due to my messages. Sorry for the dismal stats. This is all since January 2021. But I still think COIL is one of the most promising ideas to save the web, so I'm continuing with it (together with Pay-for-Read thru PayGo).
