Some clarification

Hi folks,

There were some very good concerns raised and I'd like to address them.

1) Do I have to join the Yahoo group? Absolutely not! I totally understand that not everyone likes Yahoo groups. I'm in a few that drive me nuts for the amount of e-mails I get. If you don't want to join, I'd recommend you still bookmark that page because a lot of important information will be posted there (labels for sending, addresses, the yarn bank, etc), but you don't have to post there, you don't have to get the e-mails, nothin!

2) Limiting it to one drive a month doesn't mean that we will be focusing on that per se. In fact, if you want to go to the Yahoo page and make items for a drive that happened 2 months back you'll be able to do that now because the addresses will all be easily accessible. I just want to try to avoid 25 different people posting about drives at a time because I think it gets too hard to keep track of.

3) Livejournal, Blogspot, Facebook, and Ravelry will continue to run as usual. Indeed, if you decide not to join the Yahoo mail list, nothing really will change except that I'll direct you to the Yahoo page for information instead of saying "email that person. I don't know."

I am hoping that people who do sign up for the Yahoo e-mail list will get to know each other a bit better, but I'm sure we can think of other ways to do that too.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the clearification and additional information. Much appreciated, and it helps to understand where we are and why we're in need of making some adjustments.

I find that using the "digest" option on Yahoo groups is a big help. With that option, you get 1 email a day that lists all the individual emails sent out in the previous 24 hour period, instead of each individual email cluttering your email account. You can still reply to individual emails from the group site. Just a thought.
