Since it's the start of the month and we've got a lot of new members,
here are a few helpful pointers that will help everyone get the best use of this Group.
You can change your e-mail Preferences at
It's the fast way to change to "daily digest", and add another e-mail address
(or remove one, if you have too many registered).
If you're getting too many e-mails, just send a blank e-mail to
This will put you on "daily digest" (one e-mail a day with all the messages in it).
And if you want to stop getting e-mails altogether, e-mail
and follow the instructions.
- DELETE the bits of the message you don't want to repeat, and put your
message at the BOTTOM. Top-posting is lazy, amateurish and childish.
- If you want people to e-mail you off the list, put your e-mail address in the body of your message [or in your .sig].
Some people seem to hit "reply", and thus send their response to the entire list!
If you want to send Documents (or pictures) to the Group, here are the rules:
Please note - the Studio-NI Group provides a free service to all our (currently
over a THOUSAND!) members.
It's a contributor-based Group, every message comes from the members themselves.
NO F*CKING ATTACHMENTS! :-(
If someone wants to share a document (Word, PDF, whatever) or a picture with the rest of the Group, don't just e-mail it.
Upload it to your web server (or to the Studio-NI site http://groups.yahoo.com/group/studio-ni
) and e-mail the URL
(including the "HTTP://" bit) as part of a plain-text message.
If you use Flickr for hosting your photos, you can also join our Flickr Group:
If you want to share a YouTube video, just add it to the Studio-NI YouTube
PLEASE HELP OUR CHARITY! :)
If a well-paid office-staffer just sends us the documents and expects our unpaid volunteers to do all the work for free,
we'll be asking for a �10 donation to the "Curing Cancer" charity campaign for Action Cancer at
