A. THE KEY POINTS ======
On Topic: Please avoid sending
OFF TOPIC messages. Messages are OFF TOPIC if they do not
pertain to Susquehanna S Gaugers club business.
Excessive Messages: Please avoid
sending excessive messages, as people
will unsubscribe if they get too many
messages with information that is not useful to them.
* Members sending off topic or excessive messages may be put on
"moderated" status or have their posting privileges
suspended, to protect the "integrity" of the group.
Discussion: This group is
configured to be 'discussion', so
all members can post announcements.

members can send announcements.

Listserver automatically stores an 'archive copy' of every
announcement sent in the "Message Archives".
These archives are private. If you have a Yahoo ID that is

then login and browse the messages by using the 'Messages'
link in the left menu bar.

separate mailbox named 'SsgPrivate' or similar, then create
a 'Mail Rule' to automatically sort messages from this
Listserver into the separate mailbox. (Consult your email programs

You'll need to get your new address to Jim Ingram, or whoever is
the current moderator.
* Members who change addresses frequently, are encouraged to use
one of the two following methods, to avoid creating unnecessary
work for the volunteer moderators.
~~~~~~ Re-subscribing When You Belong To Multiple Yahoo Groups,
or Change Addresses Often
Alternate Method 1: Yahoo
Note that if you belong to multiple Yahoo
groups and your email address changes.
* You can update the address ONCE in your Yahoo section,
rather than having to unsubscribe and resubscribe to several
* To do this, you first need to get a 'Yahoo ID', then
'link' it to your actual email address using your Yahoo
'Profile'. Consult Yahoo help pages, or someone familiar
with this process for more info.
Alternate Method 2: Gmail
Another method is to get a free Gmail address from Google
(Gmail.com), and subscribe it to any
Yahoo groups you belong to. Then you can forward the Gmail
address to your actual address.
Then if your actual address changes again, you just change the
forwarding address ONCE in Gmail, and all your Listserver messages
are now forwarded to your new address.
