_WELCOME_ ICYRA Mailing List Information 6/10/94 Welcome to the ICYRA mailing list! This list is a distribution list for the purpose of spreading knowledge of and disseminating information about the Intercollegiate Yacht Racing Association of North America to all interested parties. It is also the official bulletin board of the ICYRA and its member teams. All official notices from the ICYRA will be sent to the subscribers of the list. You may also _CONTRIBUTE_ to the list by sending e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org When replying to mail posted to the list, if you want everyone to receive your reply, send it to the above address. Otherwise, address it to the individual who sent it. All requests for _SUBSCRIBING/UNSUBSCRIBING_, or for reporting of any PROBLEMS should go to: email@example.com To subscribe, write SUBSCRIBE in the subject and: SUBSCRIBE <Last Name, First Name> in the body of the message. To unsubscribe, write UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject and: UNSUBSCRIBE <Last Name, First Name> in the body of the message. If you have a problem, just write PROBLEM in the subject, and detail the problem in the body of the message. Also, use icyra-request if you need any of the following: --Help with the list --General information about ICYRA (if it can't wait for the FAQ to be sent out) --Technical help with Internet --To notify us ofaddress changes --Anything else you don't want everyone in North America to see If for some reason you have a problem sending to either of those addresses, then please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to work out the problem. _____________________________________________________ _PURPOSE_ The purpose of this mailing list is two-fold: 1) To enhance the communication network between all members of ICYRA and promote discussion of all topics relate to college sailing (e.g. boatspeed, tactics, management of individual teams, sailing site tips, etc.) 2) To give all people who are interested in college sailing, but not currently participating in it, a view into the fierce competition, practices, schedules, rankings, discussions, and any other information helpful to them. _____________________________________________________ _FORMAT_ When posting certain types mail to the lists, we will have a special protocol as follows: ------------------------------------------------- | For posting notices of regatta: | NOTICE:<regatta name>,<host district> | | For instance, | NOTICE:Nelson-Roltsch, SEISA | | ------------------------------------------------- RESULT:<regatta name>,<host district> | | For instance, | RESULT:Blue Couch Regatta, MAISA | ------------------------------------------------- This makes it easier to scan for a quick search... Any other posts can be done normally, unless anyone can think of any other useful conventions... _____________________________________________________ _RULES_ 1) Be considerate. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. 2) No flaming (inflammatory remarks which offend or elicit strong feelings and/or an infinite number of unproductive and idiotic posts to the list.) (YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!) 3) When replying, make sure to include the pertinent portion of the message with the reply, and only that part. There is nothing worse than a ten page message for a four-word reply, or four-word reply with nothing else. Before sending, just think how others will read your message. 4) Keep personal discussions off of the list. Don't clutter up other peoples mailboxes with thirty messages about where "our team is going to stay for Navy Fall". When you have some idea that no one else on this list could care less about what you are saying, it is probably time to consider moving it onto a private means of communication. (see above -- Contacting directly :) 5) Don't subscribe/unsubscribe or report problems to the icyra address (only to the icyra-request). No one else but me cares... 6) Don't send regular messages to the icyra-request address, my Mailhost and I will be the only two who get them. (Not that we don't find them _very_ interesting.) _____________________________________________________ _FAQ_ A Frequently Asked Questions list is under construction and shall be sent out shortly. If you have anything to add, or suggest for inclusion in the FAQ, please let me know. _____________________________________________________ _FUTURE PLANS_ Hopefully by August, we will set up a newsgroup on USENET (rec.sailing.college ?) which will inherit the discussion and general we will use this list for everything. _____________________________________________________ _HELP!_ This is your list. It can flourish only with your help. I need suggestions!! If you feel anything is the slightest bit unclear, let me know immediately. Also, if you have any additions that you feel would be appropriate for a Welcome document, send them to me. This is actually what's the difference ;) This is your list, put it to good use! _____________________________________________________ _NOW WHAT?_ As I said before, for this list to be successful, it needs your help. WRITE, WRITE, WRITE! Anything that you think might be of interest to others, or any questions you have for the general population, post them to the list! Don't let all of these blood, sweat, and tears go to waste! (Okay, maybe blood cholesterol, Butterfinger bars, and lots of coffee, but what's the difference ;) This is your list, put it to good use! _____________________________________________________ _BACK-POSTINGS_ If anyone needs a copy of a back posting, send e-mail to icyra-request and in the subject write BACK-POSTING. In the body, tell me exactly what you need. All posts from this list will be automatically stored. _____________________________________________________ _WHAT ELSE?_ What else needs to be here???? What did I miss???? _____________________________________________________ _THE BAD STUFF_ I hate to say this, but it needs to be said. Subscribing to this list is a privilege, not a right. If you abuse that privilege, you will lose it, period. Follow, the few rules we have, and nobody will get hurt! _____________________________________________________ Sail Fast-- _________________________________________________________________ Jay Allen \ "If at first you don't succeed, \ University of Texas-Ex, 1993 \ lower your standards." ;) \ Tulane Medical School \__________________________________\ Southeastern Intercollegiate Sailing Assoc.
