    1. [Dyfed] Announcement

    3. Listers, As promised, you will shortly receive an invitation to join our new list - WLS-Dyfed@groups.io. One or two have already found the new list by browsing, if you have dones so then obviously just delete any invitation. The minimum you will have to do is to reply to that message (no need to add any text). The new home page is : https://groups.io/g/Wls-Dyfed This page gives email addresses: * Post: WLS-Dyfed@groups.io <mailto:WLS-Dyfed@groups.io> * Subscribe: WLS-Dyfed+subscribe@groups.io <mailto:WLS-Dyfed+subscribe@groups.io> * Unsubscribe: WLS-Dyfed+unsubscribe@groups.io <mailto:WLS-Dyfed+unsubscribe@groups.io> * Group Owner: WLS-Dyfed+owner@groups.io <mailto:WLS-Dyfed+owner@groups.io> * Help: WLS-Dyfed+help@groups.io <mailto:WLS-Dyfed+help@groups.io> It also gives some of the list settings: Group Settings * All subscribers can post to the group. * Posts to this group do not routinely require approval from the moderators. * The first Post from new users require approval from the moderators. (an anti-spam measure) * Messages are set to reply to group. * Subscriptions to this group do not require approval from the moderators. * Archives are visible to anyone. * Wiki is visible to subscribers only. * Members can edit their messages. * Members can set their subscriptions to no email. Some facilities are only available if you create a log-on, most noticable The Wiki. This is where subscribers can store useful information for the community - e.g. we could add links tomembers web pages, or create a list of members research interests. I have alreay started a page of useful links (currently Genuki for the3 counties and Dyfed FHS.) Postings can now also include attachments - photos, documents etc. Photos will be downsized to approximatley screen size to reduce storage - which is limited to just 1GB on the free system. When this limit is reached oldest images and documents will be automatically deleted to accomodate any new postings. Thi means images will not be kept in the archives indefinitely. The archives are arranged by subject of postings (similar to the Thread on Rootsweb) , so it is important when replying to a posting not to change the subject. Also it is important that the subject is meaningful. And while we are at it, lets try to start any that are specific to one county with the county chapman code. We have long asked that we preface the subject with PEM-; CGN-; or CMN- if they are specific to that county. Normal rules of posting apply - be polite, tret others with respect and no flaming etc. Dai

    3. Dai, I have one question. Will members of the new list receive E-Mail notification of messages as posted, or will it require logging in to read?
