      We have many members who post often and thus have become easily
      recognized by their short signature. However, newcomers who don't
      recognize the short signatures might benefit from more
      transparency. In the spirit of transparency, I always sign my posts
      with some words that identify who I am, as you can see at the end of
      this post. Those on the List who have unique experience or
      qualifications might consider doing the same. For instance, if you
      are a BackPack Gear Tester, why not say so? Or a hammock sales
      rep. Or a hammock manufacturer. Or a long-distance hiker. Or a
      hammock enthusiast with an informative web site. Or a long-time
      hammock user. Of course anonymity is one of the attractions of a
      discussion group like ours, and there's no need for everyone to use
      a signature like mine. But for those who would like to better
      identify themselves; please feel free to do so. I simply set up
      my `email signature' in Outlook and call it Hammock Camping List (I
      have several email signatures that I use for different occasions).

      When recommending specific gear, many folks mention in their posts
      that they are not financially associated with the product or
      manufacturer—this is greatly appreciated as it's not always obvious
      who the writer is. I certainly encourage this and I suspect
      everyone else on the List also appreciates it. But our List also
      includes some folks, who, like me, have a financial interest in the
      gear they talk about. Since our List is open to all, we do have
      several other hammock manufacturers, sales reps, and gear vendors
      among us. While we discourage out and out advertising or blatant
      commercialism, we do encourage everyone's input, as long as it is
      respectufl and informative. Signing off with an appropriate
      signature could go a long way in maintaining the transparency we all
      expect.

      Please feel free to express yourself in your signature!

      Happy Hammocking....Ed

        Is there a way to add a signature block to this group? I read the
        posts online, noy in my e-mail and I reply directly on line, not
        throuogh e-mail. So my e-mail signature will not make it to the
        posts. Does anyone know if there is a way to have a sig. just for
        this group. I've looked and tried the help section (Is that thing
        useless or what?) and can't find anything.

        Is there a way to store one no my keyboard? Like Ctrl+Alt+? I see
        auto fill but it's just a one liner type deal.

        Currently signatureless.

          just for fun... ed, i don`t guess that really applys to me. i`m not any of those people you mentioned... i`m a hammock enthusiast, but don`t have a web site (yet). i have introduced quite a few people to backpacking, camping, & day hiking since the mid 80s. and in the last year or so i`ve even converted a few ground dwellers into hammockers. but i don`t know of any way to say that in a signature with out sounding like i was bragging <g>
          mabey i can just be seen as a contributer to this growing passion, but i don`t know how to say that in a signature either.
          mabey my signature is good enough... just paying respect to the One that gave us all these beautiful places to hang our hammocks :~) ...tim

            I was exploring an answer to your question, Rat, and others may have
            already answered.

            With the web client, even in "Rich Text" mode, I don't see a way. It
            doesn't work exactly like many forum-type boards do.
