      Hi All,

      Thank You for being here!



      list rules
      ----------

      1. *Friendliness first* - this is a public list, avoid attacking anyone -
      emails sting so easily. be kindly and understanding,
      no immoderate or cutting language. (resolve list conflicts
      privately, or email list feedback to: roger at teflchina dot org
      - I care and need your feedback, positive and negative. Thanks!)

      2. Subject lines - be specific, informative:

      "Oral exams, 3 minute interviews" <--(teach)

      "Hangzhou, Zhejiang Uni. summer job" <--(job)

      "Mandarin on the train" <--(life)

      (2b)
      be on topic --> rethread to a branch list if necessary.
      teflchina@yahoogroups.com (discusses teaching)
      teflchinajob@yahoogroups.com (discusses jobs/employment issues)
      teflchinalife@yahoogroups.com (discusses all the rest)

      *see list topics and addresses in any message footer*


      3. In replies, quote only a few lines, above your reply,
      discussion style. d e l e t e b o t t o m q u o t e s
      - bottom quotes are redundant and havoc
      for the list digests and archives.

      4. Reference anything that is not yours, at top.

      5. Get the author's permission before forwarding email and indicate
      that you have it at beginning of post. a brief intro is nice,
      too.

      6. Plain text only. No HTML messages or attachments.
      BUT if you have a China photo! or formatted file for
      listers, just email it to: roger at teflchina dot org. He can
      upload it to the list Web site, teflchina.org, and give
      you the URL (web page address) and you can post that.

      7. No cross-posting; do not post the same message to more than
      one of the lists in our field *at one time*. listers have already
      seen it!

      8. No advertising.
      job opening and professional announcements *are* welcome
      (when *informative*) on TEFLChinaJob. please put the
      city, province and name of school in the Subject line of
      job offers.

      9. Sign your real name.
      Sign your posts with your real name (family name may
      be omitted if you show it in your From line). This is
      common sense but some new listers haven't known. Done :-).

      10. Reporting professional misconduct or fraud.
      Posts reporting professional misconduct or fraud may
      not give the identity of the perpetrator nor, unless
      it is yourself, the name of the victim. You may post
      about the misconduct or fraud as a warning to list
      as follows: The names of persons or schools[1] may not
      be given in such context, City names however may.
      o Or, to give names, try: Nate's China School Review:
      http://chinaschoolreview.com
      o Or consider The TEFLChina Mentors List:
      http://teflchina.org/jobs/mentors

      [1] Onlist you may mention a school by name and say
      there is a "negative" or a "positive" review on it at
      Nate's China School Review and give the URL.
