The RR Mailing List
Subscribing to the List
Browse on over to the Rock Rendez-vous Yahoo! Groups page and click on the "Join" button. If you don't have a Yahoo! account, you will need to get one.
Alternatively, you can subscribe by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive instructions by return mail telling you how to confirm your subscription. You do not need a Yahoo! account to do this. You do not need to put anything in the subject line or the body of the email. If you are a Yahoo! member, you can sign in to the group and select whether you want to get messages as individual emails or as a daily digest. You can also view the message archive.
Same process as subscribing, but in reverse. You can either go to our Yahoo! Groups page and do it there or send an email to: email@example.com. You do not need to put anything in the subject line or the body of the email.
Posting messages to the List
Send your message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Simple as that.
No Commercial Postings!
You must be on our mailing list to post messages (see above for how to subscribe); this service is for club- or activity-related e-mail (e.g. trip announcements, questions about conditions etc.) only. Please no junk mail (chain letters, advertisements, etc.)!
Keep in mind that the club is a forum where people who enjoy climbing can communicate with like-minded people for activities. That is our common bond.
Other non-climbing related items (parties !) may be posted on occasion. Just try to keep your posting pertinent to club members' interests.
Before you post to the group be aware of the traffic previously generated that week. Don't post a joke to the group if we've already seen 3 of 'em in a row. Use your good judgement.
If you have more than one trip to announce or more than one question to ask try to consolidate your announcements into one e-mail so that you don't clutter everybody's mailbox.
If you are responding to a trip announcement or posting, respond back to the individual who sent the e-mail and not the whole mailing list. Only respond to the whole list if your response is pertinent to the membership at large. Likewise if you are putting the final touches on organizing a trip and already know e-mail addresses post privately to those who plan to go and not the whole list.
Try to keep traffic on the list alias to a minimum. If a lot of mail has been sent out recently and your posting can wait until next week, send it next week.
Be aware that most people have their e-mail at work and are subscribed to other list aliases.
Always include a descriptive title in your post so people know what it's about without having to read the entire message.
If you are going to be gone from your computer for an extended period of time please unsubscribe from the list or your mailbox may fill up and begin bouncing posts.
Don't flame, flirt or disrespect someone on the list. If you have something harsh or personal to say, say it back-channel in a private message.
