maybe create a DansDeals WhatsApp chat? would love to be added if it exists already  ;)
And have a live Q&A on every group as there is no such thing as a channel.
Oh definitely, that's something there's a severe lack of on whatsapp ;)
+1
this sounds like a broadcast message and those are also limited to 256 ppl at a time
On a broadcast only ppl that saved you in their contacts get it...

Would love to know how.
Have a google form that people enter their contact info, saved into a google doc. Which will sync with google contacts, which will then sync on an android phone.

How can you make it so that all the numbers are masked? Who wants their number to be seen (and copied) by hundreds of people?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

There are groups that use some sort of bot to copy all messages and send them to other groups. There are many groups that have many many groups and I don't believe they're copying and pasting that many times..

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
