1. SUBSCRIBING

There are 2 ways:

* Use the Google groups web site to subscribe, or

* Email a message (subject/message text don't matter) to ba-acappella+subscribe@googlegroups.com . (Note the "+" in the address.) You should then get a welcome message back. In particular, this email method allows subscribing from any email address, as long as you can validate the received message.

2. POSTING POLICY

Since ba-acappella has hundreds of subscribers, please be thoughtful about your postings.

Observe these rules: postings should be about concerts, auditions, groups, and other subjects related to a cappella music in the Bay Area. Please do not post anything not relevant to the Bay Area. Please include a location (at least a region such as "north bay"; a city is better) in the subject line of every post.

Announcements of performances are a main topic of interest to the community. Please don't hesitate to post information about a show. Subscribers are all over the bay!

3. HOW TO POST MESSAGES

After subscribing, there are two ways to send a message to the mailing list:

* use the Google web interface, clicking on "New Topic" at the Google groups web site

* or, just email your message to ba-acappella@googlegroups.com (after you are already a member, using a "from" email address that matches your subscription)

4. UNSUBSCRIBING

There are two ways to unsubscribe:

* Use the Google groups web site to unsubscribe (use the "my settings" menu in the upper right corner of the main page.)

* Send a message (subject/message text don't matter) to ba-acappella+unsubscribe@googlegroups.com (after you are already a member, using a "from" email address that matches your subscription)

5. IS THERE AN ACAPPELLA WEB SITE FOR A WIDER GEOGRAPHY?

The Contemporary A Cappella Society (CASA) is a great jumping off point for worldwide acappella: www.casa.org
