Text to Join needs to come back. I do a lot of networking and it's so easy to say to someone "pull out your phone, text hwallen to 22828 and type in your email address when prompted". It's also easy to say that once to a group of people and have them all sign up concurrently. From what I've experienced with QR codes, it needs to be printed (and passed around) or brought up on one phone so another can scan it (now two phones are needed instead of 1 and it's done one on one, not as a group). Once the QR code is launched then a form pops up and the person has to navigate from space to space to fill it out. Registering my attendance at church is where I've experienced the QR code to-form situation. I just write on the paper attendance pad because it's faster so I can get back to the service rather than tab, type, tab, type, tab, type, submit. If it takes too long, no one fills it out. With the removal of this feature, it makes email gathering so much more arduous and not productive. If you're trying to make things easier, you've gone the wrong way. Test it out. Ask a board room of people to join a list and see how long that takes using Text to Join v QR code. I'd like to see the results. If QR wins, then please tell me how to use it more efficiently.
