Summary: We have set up a free Yahoo group, where LOCAL Williamsport-area webmasters can discuss issues relating to their web pages.
A. To Join:
Email me your name, city of residence, and contact phone number.
To be "eligibile", you MUST be somewhere near the local Williamsport Pennsylvania area . . . or be someone I have talked to and am familiar with.
((Normally you can join a Yahoo group simply by sending a "blank" email to a subscribe address. But since this group will probably be a small group, I want more control over who joins it.))
B. Two Things To Remember
Your email address is safe. The only person who sees it is me, when I put it in the database.
You can leave the group ("unsubscribe" yourself) any time you want. You do this by sending a "blank" email (no subject, no body) to BilltownWebfirstname.lastname@example.org .
C. Overview of How A Yahoo Group Works:
- Whenever a member sends a message to a Yahoo group, a copy of that message is sent to all members. (Sort of like sending a letter to the editor of your newspaper; everybody subscribing to the paper gets a copy of it.)
- Whenever a message is sent, the Yahoo group automatically makes a "web page archive" for that message. The archives can be set to be either private (members only) or public. For this group, they are public.
- The email addresses of the members is safe and hidden in the Yahoo database. Only the groups "moderator" can access it.
- A member can "unsubscribe" any time that they want to leave the group.
