[dundee-history] eGroups Registration , and Subscription to a Group
- With so many new members in recent months, it will be helpful to all of us to
circulate a recent reminder from eGroups, about the subtle, but vital
difference between Registering with eGroups as a whole, and Subscribing
to a particular Group - like " dundee-history "..
""Registration versus Subscription: Educating Your Members on the
Did you know that your group members need to be officially registered
with the eGroups service to be able to access our features? For
example, if any of your group members are subscribed to your group,
but are not registered with eGroups, they will not be able to access
the many valuable features such as the vault, calendar, chat room, and
As you know, these features enhance and enrich the group communications
experience, so we want to make sure all of your members have full
access to them.
You may want to send a message to your group(s) asking members if they
have registered at the eGroups site. They might think that because they
are subscribed to your group, they are also automatically registered
with eGroups. You'll want to clarify that these two processes are
separate - they can be subscribed to a group without being registered
For those members who are not registered, just let them know that they
can quickly and easily register at www.egroups.com. They will need to
enter their email addresses and choose a password. This will enable
them to utilize the many useful features at eGroups.
1) Registration at eGroups and subscription to a group are two
2) Your members must be officially registered at eGroups to have
access to features and benefits.
3) When your members register at eGroups they will have acces to
features such as the calendar, the vault for file sharing and much
more located at the web site.
4) Check with your members today to find out if they have officially
registered at eGroups and let them know the benefits they gain
when they do register!""
I cannot check on any members Registration Status, but where some of us have
had difficulties in the past in
accessing say the Vault, that does suggest that they have not gone fully the
Registration mill !
If you do go to the erGroups home page at http://www.egroups.com and find
your personal address
recorded , then all is well - you are Registered, and need do nothing further.
Otherwise follow the procedure
for Registration, and do remember to write down your Validation number, and
Password, and save them safely!
Good luck. Hopefully we will all be fully Registered in time for Hogmanay !!
For those going First Footing - remember to have that lump of coal, and the
dressed kipper, or a dram in your hand!
First in should be a tall dark haired fellow! Dundee used to split itself into
two camps - the home teams, and the
first footers. A system that worked very well for both groups!!
