These are the guidelines for the Group Managers Forum.

  • Our GMF Group's web resources are open and public. Our Messages archives and Wiki are viewable and searchable by non-members. GMF message archives are indexed by major search engines. Unfortunately, due to restrictions, you must be a member of GMF and logged in to access our Files and Photos sections.

  • We expect members to post and act responsibly. Please respect your fellow members' time and attention: strive to be clear, concise and courteous. Our subject matter naturally includes matters of opinion; if you happen to disagree with another member please do so without being rude. Personal attacks are not allowed. Solicitations are off topic and will be deleted without comment. Listing your groups in your signature is perfectly acceptable, but just make sure there's also on-topic content in your post.

  • Attachments are allowed and the judicious use of screen shots and other illustrations is encouraged!

  • All messages sent to GMF are moderated. This is done to avoid malicious attachments, spam, off-topic messages, and messages from spoofed or compromised mail accounts. Despite these measures, be aware that the bad guys are clever so there's no guarantee that we'll always succeed; you are encouraged to be vigilant against any and all threats arriving via email. Your GMF moderators make no guarantees regarding the safety of emails arriving from this or any other address.

  • We are always looking for suggestions from our members to make this group better for all. Feel free to address any questions, comments, or concerns directly to the group moderators via email to

GMF Mission Statement:

We strive to be a resource of the highest quality for owners and moderators of groups. We allow as much information as possible from our group to be accessed by visitors! Would you like to be a better group owner and/or moderator? Would you like to see even more improvements in groups? We discuss our experiences as both group owners and moderators, share ideas for promoting and customizing the content areas, and offer various techniques for managing groups.

We thank you for your interest and for your contributions.
