Messages to the Group:
Please make the 'Subject' line reflective of the content of the message, especially if you are answering a digest mode post. If you are looking to sell, buy, or swap items, please use the following prefixes: For Sale (FS), Wanted To Buy (WTB), and For Swap (FS)
Members are asked to make sure that they "sign" their posts and don't leave them effectively anonymous; the identity of the sender is not always apparent from the Groups.io ID that appears. It is discourteous to the membership as a whole, and while we don't want to have to reject messages because their originators have failed to put their names (and where issued, amateur callsign) after their posts we might have to review this, particularly if "persistent offenders" come to light.
Please trim your posts. It is not necessary to repeat the entire thread with every response. This applies especially to readers of Digest mode posts.
Paragraphs, punctuation, complete sentences, and correct spelling are appreciated. You are not being charged by the word! You can include clickable links to other sites in your posts.
Mail Options: You can opt to receive group posts as individual messages, daily digests, or not at all. You may select these options yourself by going into the Group site and editing your preferences. Turning off your own mail is useful if you go away for a while.
Photos and Attachments: The list is set up to strip off attachments for security (anti-virus) reasons. Members may upload Files or Photographs into the relevant sections However, the space available is limited – rather less than Yahoo allowed and more space would have to be paid for; not a preferred option! As a result some of the material has had to be cleared out, and the Owner and Moderators reserve the right to delete any material where it is felt that it has served its purpose.
Members who have photographs that they think warrant long – term preservation may submit them to either the Group Owner or Chris (S) for possible inclusion on the Archive website.
