      Administrivia: About the ICG mailing lists.

      Due to a crash of the Best List Server in early October,
      the ICG mailing lists were moved to eGroups. When the
      server came back up, the membership decided it liked eGroups.

      The ICG has 2 mailing lists, the ICG General Discussion (ICG-D)
      list and the ICG Board of Directors (ICG-BOD) list.

      ICG-D is intended for, but not limited to, the general membership
      of the International Costumers' Guild.

      ICG-BOD is intended for, and limited to, the members of the
      International Costumers' Guild Board of Directors as defined
      by Article 5, Section 1 of the ICG Bylaws and those non-voting
      parties as invited by the BOD to provide commentary.

      To post to the lists use the following addresses:

      ICG-D@egroups.com for general membership discussion.
      ICG-BOD@egroups.com for officer level discussions.

      To subscribe, please see the Subscription HowTo contained
      in subscribe.txt for instructions.

      Notes:

      Policies of the ICG-D and ICG-BOD mailing list:

      1) No Flaming. The moderator will issue one and only one warning.

      If the flaming continues, all parties flaming will be unsubscribed.

      2) No detailed discussion of the actual making of costumes.

      "Huh?" you say. When this list was set up, its intention was
      not to draw traffic away other costuming lists such as
      H-Costume, F-Costume, Vintage, etc, but to promote discussion
      about the ICG and costuming in general between members.

      Detailed discussions will be encouraged to move or cross post
      to one of the other lists.

      3) If someone directly requests the moderator to subscribe/unsubscribe
      them they will be sent this message and the moderator will
      subsingle/unsubscribe them.

      4) No SPAM! Suspect addresses in subscription requests will have their
      identity verified.

      5) No Chain Letters. I know some of them pull at your heart strings
      or have you fearing for your hard drive, but most are inaccurate
      (at best), out-of-date or fake (at worst).

      6) Severely off-topic discussions or violations of these few policies
      will flagged by a message from the moderator with [RIP]* in the
      subject line. Further discussion after the posting of the [RIP]
      message should be taken to private eMail.

      7) No viral advertising! Do not send messages with advertisements
      attached. It is bad enough we have to put up with the ads attached
      to the free eMail accounts, without members taking the conscious act
      of attaching advertising. I consider these one step above SPAM.

      8) Subscribers whose accounts bounces mail will be deactivated.

      "If messages sent to a member are consistently returned"
      will deactivate your account from stop sending the mailing
      list to your address.

      For freemail account holders (Hotmail, Juno, Excitemail, etc)
      Please be aware you account has limitations and will bounce
      mail when you exceed you quota or have a full mailbox.

      * I originally used Rip as in the sense of a ripping seam, but when
      capitalized, its other meaning worked as well.

        About the ICG-D Mailing List
        Updated 4/23/2006

        ICG-D is the official mailing list of the International Costumers Guild. It is
        intended for, but not limited to, the general membership of the ICG. Its
        purpose is to promote discussion about all aspects of costuming and costuming-
        related activities. The sick jokes, constant punning, and occasional bouts of
        silliness are just a by-product of gathering creative minds together in a
        forum such as this.

        The official mailing address is ICG-D@yahoogroups.com. While the list is
        generally unmoderated (that is to say, messages don't get checked before being
        posted to the list), the moderators of the list will not hesitate to put a
        poster on moderated status should the situation call for it.

        New members are kept on moderated status until they have posted to the list several times. This is done to prevent spammers from attacking the list. The moderators will grant full posting privileges as soon as we're sure you're not an evil nasty spammer.

        Policies of the ICG-D mailing list:

        1) No Flaming. The moderators will issue one and only one warning.
        If the flaming continues, all parties flaming will be unsubscribed.
        We expect participants to treat each other with respect and courtesy.

        2) No SPAM! Suspect addresses in subscription requests will have their
        identity verified and be removed so fast the air will crackle.

        3) No Chain Letters. I know some of them pull at your heart strings
        or have you fearing for your hard drive, but most are inaccurate
        (at best), out-of-date or fake (at worst). When given a chain letter,
        your best policy is to visit the Urban Legends page at www.snopes.com
        and see if it's mentioned out there. Odds are it will be.

        4) When you change the topic of conversation, do everyone a favor and apply
        that change to the subject line as well. Keep the subject line short. Do
        not use the subject line as the first line of your message.

        5) Every so often the list will drift off topic. The moderators' general
        belief is that there's nothing wrong with a bit of side conversation from
        time to time so long as there aren't too many on-topic discussions going
        on and being interfered with. If the side discussions are going on too
        long, the moderators will politely clear their virtual throats and ask for
        an end to things. Please do so. Moderators do terrible things when they
        get cranky.

        6) When replying to a post, please copy the pertinent parts of what you're
        replying to so that everyone gets a point of reference. Do not, however,
        copy all 500 lines of said post before replying.

        7) Please avoid one-word or one sentence replies. Make your posts meaningful.

        8) If your email account starts bouncing messages, we will make one attempt
        to correct the situation. If this attempt fails, or the bouncing returns
        after a successful restoration, your email address will be removed from
        the list. Please be aware that a number of freemail account holders such
        as Hotmail and others have limits on how much mail can be received and
        will bounce messages when that quota has been exceeded.

        9) There are several ways you can read messages on the ICG-D list:

        a) Receive individual messages to your email account
        b) Receive digests, sent in groups of 25 or in one-day packages
        c) No-email; read messages out at the ICG-D folder of Yahoo Groups

        You can contact the moderators to have your email delivery changed, but
        if you have a Yahoo Profile you can make these changes yourself (or in
        the case of the third method listed above, just go out to the site and
        read to your heart's content).

        The ICG-D list's home page is at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ICG-D/

        For those of you loathe to provide any provider with personal information,
        let me point out that the Webguy's Yahoo Profile shows him to be Mr_Gengar,
        a resident of the Pokeville Vermillion Forest, and no one from Yahoo has
        called him on it yet.

        To register with Yahoo Groups, visit the main Yahoo Groups page at
        http://www.yahoogroups.com and click on "Register".

        If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us.
