Posting netiquette and related concerns.
Please make sure your postings fit the scope of this group site (as indicated in the group description):
PPLetterpress is a forum and clearinghouse on studio-letterpress and letterpress-related typography. While the subject focus is on printing with digital type and the photopolymer plate process, the group site also encompasses other related investigative and exploratory printing and typographic techniques, as well as historical and contemporary letterpress practices and concerns.
Use an appropriate descriptive subject header (no blanks or daily digest headers). If you are cross-posting across several lists or forwarding a message indicate this in the subject header.
Please consider your fellow group members when posting. Stay on topic and avoid posting privately-intended replies to the entire group (on site you have the option of posting to the group or directly to the poster). If you are replying to a post remove all unnecessary commentary, Yahoo add-ons, and remnants of previous posts to the thread. The moderators will remove unsubstantial postings such as blank replies, duplicates, spam, automated responses (you will be put on no-mail), me toos, as well as off subject and frivolous chat. Refrain from posting for sale items not your own, especially those culled from Briar Press Classifieds, Craigslist, or eBay. Repeat violators will be put on moderated status. Do not post invitations from social networks such as Facebook, twitter, etc., to this list. These are considered spam.
DO NOT post virulent personal attacks against another member or messages intended to disrupt the group. Sniping and other antagonistic posting practices are discouraged. Offenders may be subject to removal from the group. Contacting other group members off list for the purpose of solicitation or harassment is a violation of the Yahoo! TOS and could result in the loss of your Yahoo ID and other legal action.
Please do not conduct business transactions via posting. If you have a product or service for sale that fits within the parameters of the group's intention you may certainly announce this but transactions should be kept private. Note: We have a Files feature that allows members to upload PDFs and other downloadable files of materials and equipment for sale, book announcements, and the like. There is also a Photos feature that allows members to upload image files (gifs, jpegs) they would like to share.
DO NOT post group-related problems to the membership. Instead, contact
and we will do our best to help you.
