      that way.

      Can anyone in the USA or elsewhere for that matter, tell me if the
      Webster Hotel is still standing?
      If it isn't, when was it pulled down?
      I will be in Chicago in June, and I thought it would be good to see the
      spot where one of my favourite
      jazz bands recorded.

      Regards
      Peter

        Hello,

        Sorry to disturb everyone with "admin" matters again, but I have just
        noticed that the group's welcome message was no longer systematically sent
        to new subscribers.
        When the automated function stopped working, I have no idea, I will try to
        fix this as soon as possible (and for the time being, I do not understand
        why).

        Still, I would like the new members and first time poster who are, at the
        moment, greatly helping the list to wake up from its temporary hibernation,
        to be aware that this is primarily a mailing-list - that is, most active
        members receiving each message as individaul email.

        I have just edited two posts (something I never do, and do not wish to do
        again), removing hundreds of unneccessary lines from the previous
        contibutions. I think that even quoting the whole of the previous message
        (which everyone has already read) is quite unpleasant, especially for a
        one-sentence comment!

        Anyway, here is a copy of the text which Micahel and I edited in 2006. It
        would probably need updating, but it provides the main guidelines for using
        the group, which does not have the sophisticated features of a forum - end
        even less of a chatroom!

        If you have comments, questions, or claims about this, please use my private
        address, or redhotjazz-owner@yahoogroups.com
        (same mailbox) - DO NOT REPLY TO THE GROUP

        Thanks,

        Patrice

        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.

        MEMBERSHIP

        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.

        MEMBERS SETTINGS

        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
        [EDIT : not recommended, since too many people forget to "clean" their
        messages]
        redhotjazz-nomail@yahoogroups.com if you wish to stop receiving mail

        POSTING TO THE GROUP

        Attached files and html code are automatically removed, so that no virus
        can reach you through any of the group's messages.
        [EDIT : the HTML content of the "full featured" messages is safe,
        it is added by Yahoo after the original post has been cleaned]
        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.

        CONTENT

        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
        argument.
        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.

        WEB FEATURES

        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.
        [EDIT: the storage space has been seriously increased since then. But if you
        do wish other members to have a look, it is safer to tell them you've added
        something! ;) ]

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