How To Join The New Treadleon List, or Transfer From The Old One
The Treadle On Email list has been transferred from its old address. It is now a Yahoo Group.
The new Administrator is Cindy Peters.
The old Treadle On email list address/group was collapsed on January 18, 2014.
If you wish to continue your participation in Treadle On, you must enroll in the new group.
Here are Cindy's instructions on doing that:
When joining the new Yahoo Groups List, PLEASE do it from a 'real' computer & NOT a tablet, phone or other device. Often, this causes a long, unintelligible screen name even if you change it to something more recognizable. Once you're a member, you'll be able to access the new TreadleOn List easily via cell phone, tablet or whatever.
When you join, if we recognise your name, it's all easy. Otherwise you may be on moderation for a couple of posts just to ensure you aren't a spammer.
If you have problems getting signed onto the new Yahoo Groups List - PLEASE, EMAIL ME DIRECTLY at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a group of around 20 Yahoo savvy volunteers - I'll put you together with one of them and they'll get you straightened out. As I said, it appears that any problems we've had in signing up for the email functions on Yahoo are of an individual nature, relating to operating system, email program, web browser, etc. and will be best handled on a one-on-one basis. The last thing we need to kick off this new phase of our TreadleOn 'life' is a list choked with messages from folks having troubles!! (Trust me here, please!!)
When posting, PLEASE continue to use Plain Text. It may or may not make a difference but we're still experiencing some problems with the oddball characters showing up when posts are not done in Plain Text.
NOW - since you've 'thoroughly read' this post (you HAVE, right???), please go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TreadleOn/ and click on the 'Join this Group' button.
NOTE - although the Yahoo Group may look like the others you already post to, we are trying to keep it simple.. For now, there will be no Photo Albums, Files, or other uploads from anyone except the admin people.. If you want to show off your machines, take an account with an image hosting site (Flickr etc.) and post a link to the group in an email.. If (when?) the Yahoo debacle resolves, we will have another think..
OK - bring it on!! Love y'all and sincere thanks to the Captain for entrusting this wonderful group to me!!
