      Not edited since 2004... but to save you the pain of looking.

      Welcome to redhotjazz@yahoogroups.com !

      Although it shares its name with the Red Hot Jazz Archives, this group is
      run independently of http://www.redhotjazz.com . Its topic is not
      restricted to the content of the website, but covers all aspects of jazz
      rooted in the pre-war era, including ragtime and swing.


      All messages can be read from
      http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/Redhotjazz ,
      but only members can post.
      Membership requires approval; Yahoo automatically requests a "reason for
      joining" but your reply is not sent to the group, so it is strongly
      recommended for members who wish to post to introduce themselves.

      New members are moderated, which means their first posts must be approved
      by one of the moderators and may be delayed. As an extra protection against
      spammers, this feature is maintained as long as no message has been sent to
      the group.


      You can choose to receive and send messages as individual email, or read
      and post from the group's page if you have created a Yahoo account.

      Settings can be changed any time, from the webpage or by sending blank
      email (no content or subject line needed) to:
      redhotjazz-normal@yahoogroups.com if you wish to receive individual email
      redhotjazz-digest@yahoogroups.com if you wish to receive daily digests
      redhotjazz-nomail@yahoogroups.com if you wish to stop receiving mail


      Attached files and html code are automatically removed, so that no virus
      can reach you through any of the group's messages.

      Everybody is expected to use understandable language and sign their
      messages. Do not write in uppercase, which is considered as "shouting".

      Discussions are organised in threads, so for everyone's convenience the
      subject line must be kept whenever you are replying to previous mail, or
      changed (adding "was: ...") if you are departing from the original subject.

      Please avoid excessive quoting, i.e. the repetition of a complete message
      followed by a single-line comment, or the complete list of previous
      messages after your own contribution; quotes should ideally be restricted
      to a couple of sentences.


      All members are welcome to contribute, and should never be influenced by
      the content of previous postings which might make them assume the list is
      only for specialists, or excludes any relevant style or musician.
      Regular announcements other than updates to the Red Hot Jazz Archives are
      not the purpose of the group, but occasional information about
      topic-related websites, radio programmes, exhibitions, bands etc. should
      also be part of the group's activities.

      Unrequested postings include spam, chain letters, hoaxes, virus warnings
      and whatever is clearly forbidden by Yahoo terms. Private replies to one
      member should not be sent to the group unless they are actually a
      contribution to the current thread.

      All efforts are made to keep this group as free and friendly as possible,
      so we are relying on everyone's self-discipline as far as off-topic content
      is concerned. Do not forget to add a smiley if your comment is meant to be
      humorous, and avoid statements that might lead to a truly off-topic
      As a general rule, questions regarding the group's management should be
      sent to the moderators, who will make their replies public if needed.

      IMPORTANT: "ADMIN" messages can only be sent by moderators, and no public
      replies are allowed.


      Members can freely upload photos or documents after they've introduced
      themselves. Please create a folder (album) before uploading photos, and
      think of removing heavy sound files after a reasonable amount of time.
      Storage in the "files" section is limited, so heavy files may be removed
      any time by the moderators.

      We hope you'll enjoy contributing to the redhotjazz group.
