Good Monday Morning to all Listmembers:
It is brutally cold in most of the midwest this morning. In sitting here
posting the Christmas posts and pondering all the possibilities of the new
subbers in the coming new year; I am contemplating looking through all my
old queries (the unsatisfied ones)and sorting them out.
I thought I would pass along a few items and posting suggestions so we can
be ready for the new year.
As much as I would like to make the New Year's resolution that I am going to
find ALL of my "missing" persons, I know this is an unrealistic resolution.
I will be running a roll call shortly after the Christmas season in order to
take advantage of any info that new subbers might have. So with that in
mind, this time period might be a good one to stop and look at all of your
queries that you use and make the changes and updates for them to be ready
to go out.
It will help all of the new subbers greatly if the postings are made in the
format that we all find most helpful in order to set a good example and
promote the new subbers to also sending out good queries.
I will shortly be sending out a post regarding the best formatting of
queries. I will place THE BEST POST in the subject line, so those of you
wishing to delete without reading may do so. I will be adjusting the
welcoming letters for new subbers to include the Best Way to Post Queries,
so as to start them off the right way.
I would also like to take this time to remind everyone that in addition to
new subbers stumbling through the lists with queries and to treating them
with consideration, we also remember:
In the excitement of the "new Christmas Computer" and the research, the new
subbers may or may not be aware of the dangers of the potential for viruses.
I caution all current subscribers to be wary of any and all attachments that
they recieve. We all know that the new year seems to be a great time for new
So lets all check our best postings, dust them off and get them ready for
the New Year roll call. Make any adjustments necessary for the best
results. Be sure to include the who,what,when where,why.
Everyone please also check your subscriptions for the mailing lists and make
certain to unsub from any you have an incorrect address for or no longer
wish to be on.
