LISTSERV

GUIDELINES

Thanks for being part of our Listserv community. To ensure the best possible experience for all Listserv members, we have established some basic guidelines for participation. By using the NEBWG Listserv, you agree that you have read and will follow the guidelines set for these peer discussion groups. You also agree to reserve listserv discussions for topics best suited to the medium. This is a great way to solicit the advice of your peers, benefit from their experience, advertise a job or new gear and participate in an ongoing conversation.

NEBWG LISTSERV ETIQUETTE
  • Include a signature tag on all messages. Include your name, affiliation, location, and e-mail address.

  • State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line. This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting and makes it easier for members to search the archives by subject.

  • All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials or language are strictly prohibited. Do not post anything in a listserv message that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.

  • Do not distribute any SPAM, solicitation, jokes, chain letters, petitions for signatures or letters relating to pyramid schemes, missing persons or once-in-a-lifetime deals.

  • Include only the relevant portions of the original message in your reply. Delete any header information, and put your response before the original posting.

  • Only send a message to the entire list when it contains information that benefits everyone.

  • Send messages such as "thanks for the information" or "me, too" to individuals--not to the entire list. Do this by using your e-mail application reply option or the reply all will go to whole list.

  • Do not send administrative messages, such as "remove me from the list", through the listserv. To unsubscribe from the list, please email dave.yates@briloon.org and I will take care of it and hopefully this will be automated soon.

  • When using an Auto Reply message for times you are out of the office, please be sure to "Create a Rule" (this is easily done with Microsoft Outlook’s Out of Office Assistant) that would prohibit sending the message to the list.
