I think it would be a great addition to the Plugin if you could have the option (in the plugin's admin page) to have the plugin collect names and addresses. Basically, adapt the plugin to become a contact signup not just an email signup!

I say "you could have the option" for users who don't want to collect names and address - then the plugin would function like it does now. For users who do want to collect that info, we could tick a checkbox in the admin page, and those fields would be added to the form and that info would be added to the database!

I was thinking of adding an option for collecting the name, to address the subscriber by name. If you want to collect more information it is probably easier to have a separate plugin/application which exports the data to PN. The database design is very simple and it should be easy to do this.
Besides that the current design makes it quite complicated to do this. To add options like this in a clean way there has to be some code rewritten. This probably has to be done anyway, but I don't think I will be able to do that this year. It's a bit off what the plugin is intended to do and I rather optimize the handling of mails.
