I rewrote these a bit today, so I thought it might be nice to post
them for everyone's edification.
How do I subscribe to the Yuricon mailing list?
You can subscribe to the mailing list in two ways:
Send an email to Yuriconemail@example.com
Sign up with Yahoogroups, then go to
The second choice allows for more options, plus access to the group
files, bookmarks and message archive.
Is there an announcements-only list?
Yes! We realize that our community is very active, and not everyone
wants a mailbox full of chit chat, anime reviews and the like. You
cannot post anything on this list and you will *only* receive posts in
the form of Special Announcements
You can join our Yuricon_announce list in two ways:
Send an email to Yuricon_announcefirstname.lastname@example.org
Sign up with Yahoogroups, then go to
How do I unsubscribe?
Unsubscribe by sending an email to
Edit your membership status at your "MyGroups" page at Yahoogroups.
How do I post?
You can post by sending an email to Yuricon@yahoogroups.com, or by
clicking 'Post' on the Yuricon list home page, or your MyGroups page.
Can I (where can I) change my delivery settings for the list?
You can change your delivery status on the Yuricon list home page at
Yahoogroups - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Yuricon The options are
individual emails, a daily digest or reading the group on the web.
What's off-topic, or can I post pretty much anything?
Within reason - pretty much anything. The following are always
1) Violent or threatening language against another member.
2) Homophobic, misogynist or misanthropic statements meant with
unpleasant intent. In other words, no bashing - of any kind.
3) Spam or other mass sales messages
These will be dealt with by immediate suspension from the list, no
More specifically, Yuricon is a celebration of shoujoai and yuri in
anime and manga - that is, anything and everything having to do with
girl/girl relationships in Japanese animation and comics. Anything
relating to anime and lesbianism is on topic. Yuricon is yaoi and
straight friendly, just remember where the focus of the group is. But
generally, personal chitchat is highly encouraged!
Can I post fics or art?
Links to new yuri/shoujoai fiction or art are strongly encouraged, but
yes, you can post them on the group. If the file is exceptionally
large - especially art files, you might want to upload it to the Files
section of the Yuricon group page at http://groups.yahoo.
com/group/Yuricon/files rather than sending it as an attachment.
Please keep art and fics tasteful - hentai/ecchi is fine (although it
should be well-labeled in the subject line) but *please* don't post
anything horribly explicit without permission from the list owner. And
if you're not *entirely* sure - run it by the list owner anyway, she's
notorious for her standards
Who holds the copyright on anything I post?
You hold the copyright on all original ideas and work. It is your and
yours alone. We *might* ask to use something you've written or drawn,
but we'll ask you first, and credit you if we use it.
Fan art and fics are only your copyright in so far as you own that
specific idea - which is to say, legally, you don't. :-)
Any use of ALC/Yuricon copyrighted characters (Yuriko and all other
SnB characters) are the property of ALC/Yuricon - but we're a bunch of
nice people and will ask you if we want to use them in something,
you'll be credited properly, we promise.
Where can I read other people's fics or see their art?
Fan art for SnB can be seen on the two art galleries at
Fan fiction for SnB can be found on the main SnB page at http://www.
Contest winners can be found at http://www.yuricon.org/contests.htm
Other art and fics can be found in the files section of the Yuricon
list page -
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Yuricon/files or in the general
archive (see below)
Where is the list archive?
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Yuricon/messages - you can search the
archive by date, name or keyword
General List Questions
Is this list moderated?
Yes and no. The owner believes in giving everyone the illusion of
democracy while actually running the list as a benevolent
dictatorship. There is a moderator and she, and the list owner, are
frequent posters on the list. If there is a problem, one of them will
give the involved parties *one* polite warning, followed by a
suspension for a second problem. There is no appeal for this - you
already had your second chance.
There is no proactive moderation - that is, you're posts do not have
to be approved to be seen by the list. We ask that you self-moderate
to avoid any unpleasant situations.
If you are having any problems at all, with the list, or with someone
on the list, you can contact the list owner at anilesbocon01@hotmail.
com or the list moderator at kun@....
What if a member of the list is harassing me off-list?
We are terribly sorry about that, but we simply cannot be responsible
for our members for the entirety of their lives. We'll be glad to help
with your on list problems...off list you'll have to figure out
Are guys/straight/bi/transgendered folks welcome here - or will I be
flamed to perdition for posting?
Heck yeah you're welcome! More than welcome. Yuricon is about the
celebration of girls in love - and we don't care who brought the
Flaming is not allowed, period, so if you do get flamed for opining
that Tomoyo ain't a baby dyke, then just let the list moderator know
and she'll deal with it (if she hasn't already.) If you've joined the
list to make trouble - or you hate yuri and are expounding upon its
evils, then expect to be escorted off the list pretty quickly. Other
than that, we're an open community - anyone welcome and we don't
really need to know your sexual preference or gender assignment,
that's not the issue.
One last thing about this - Yuricon is by and for women who like
women. So while we are yaoi and straight anime and manga friendly,
remember the aesthetic is really ours. Don't be surprised if it
differs slightly from general boy-run stuff.
Yeah, we know. But it's free, easy to access and has things like
archives, files, polls, bookmarks, etc, all of which are nice to have.
General ALC/Yuricon Policies
AniLesboCon is a copyright 2000, Dreiser, and used with permission.
AniLesboCon, ALC Publishing, Yuricon, Yuriko, Yuricon, Yurikon,
Shoujoai ni Bokuen, (including all characters and situations) are
copyrighted 2001-3, E. Friedman.
Use of these terms, characters or situations without permission is a
really tacky thing to do. Fan art and fics are greatly appreciated and
will be showcased on the Yuricon site. Unauthorized use of any of the
above will result in prosecution, which will make us all unhappy, so
don't, please. Ask first.
It is not Yuricon/ALC's policy to use their mailing list, member
information or contact info for anything at all other than
Yuricon/ALC-related communication. We don't sell mailing lists, member
demographics, poll info or anything. Mostly because no one has ever
offered us any money for any of that. But if they did, unless it was a
very great deal of money, we'd turn them down, because we value our
Common courtesy is the most important single quality necessary at
Yuricon. We're all here to have fun, so try to keep that in mind.
Here's some basic rules of thumb:
1) Remember, this is not real life. It's a computer and the person you
are screaming at is a name in text. Turn the computer off and walk
away until you don't see red instead of responding to a post in anger.
2) Be polite - even if it kills you
3) No one is "right" anymore than anyone is "wrong." You may disagree
but your point of view is only one of many, please allow others
4) Do not out people or otherwise use real-life personal info that is
private without their consent. This will not be tolerated on the list
and may well open you up to a real-life lawsuit.
5) Have fun. If it's not fun, go away from the list for a while. When
you miss us, come back.
There simply is no reason whatsoever to get enraged by anything online
- it can't hurt you unless you let it. Try to remember that this is
just an adjunct to a fun life - not a substitute for one. :-)
Yuricon's mission is to openly enjoy and celebrate all forms of yuri
and shoujoai. If that's what you want to do - you're in the right
