We need announcers, to send a CC of their public events (no extra work, just another CC)
We welcome any and ALL legitimate model rail announcements, pertaining to Phoenix Arizona. This can be shows, sales, open houses, layout photos, club event photos, or any other club publicity that you want the public to see.
When you send a copy of your announcement to the ‘PhxRail’ Yahoo group, it automatically creates a “web page archive” for your message — so that your announcement “lives forever”.
- To send a message, you first need to get “posting privileges” for your email address.
- Once you have “posting privileges”, the Yahoo Group system will ‘accept’ your message and then put it on a web page, plus distribute it to any ‘subscribers’ to the group. ((It will automatically reject messages from others who do not have the ‘posting privileges’; this is an attempt to keep Spammers from sending Spam messages.))
To get “posting privileges”, please contact the volunteer moderator, James Ingram. He will add your email address as a ‘subscriber’ to the group, then give it ‘posting privileges’.
- Note: Unfortunately Yahoo will NOT allow us to add email addresses such as “info..@”, “sales@..”, or “admin@..”; so we are “stuck” whenever someone is using that address for their announcements.
To send a message: (Only Announcers w/posting privileges can do this)
You send a copy of your message to PhxRail@yahoogroups.com .
For most announcers, this means just adding another address to their address book.
YOUR COPY OF THE MESSAGE: Once you send an announcement to the group, sometime later (often within the hour, but can be delayed up to 24 hr), you and any other subscribers will get a copy of your message with the ‘subject tag’ of [PhxRail] added to the front of the subject line.
