To cut and trim your posting, (so that we all don’t have to scroll down endlessly!) 
When you post a response, check to see if there are strings of responses that have been posted to it. Cut out all responses except the specific one to which you are responding. Do this by highlighting the appropriate area to cut and then press “delete.”

To add your name/address/phone to the private yahoogroup database: 
The database of members provides others with specific contact information like your phone number, address, spouse’s/partner’s name, child/children’s name(s) and birthday(s). (Sharing this information is optional, but helpful!)
  1. Go to Yahoo group site (groups.yahoo.com/group/HNMoms).
  2. In the dark blue box (top, left-hand corner), click on “database.”
  3. At the top of the table, Click on “add record.” 
  4. Type in appropriate data you wish to share with group. 
  5. Click on “add record” at the bottom of the page.

To change your preference of delivery of postings from individual to daily digest: 
  1. Go to Yahoo group site (groups.yahoo.com/group/HNMoms).
  2. Click on “edit membership” at the very top of the page (look for white horizontal stripe above an orange horizontal stripe).
  3. Read through your current preferences and change your delivery preference in Step 2. 
  4. Click on “save changes” at the bottom of the page.
