[Last updated on: Fri Mar 10 9:29:28 2000] Welcome to the ECFCOK list 1. About this list 2. List rules 3. List commands 4. Help! 1. About this list This list has been set up for the purpose of discussing ways to promote and increase supporter involvement in Exeter City Football Club. Everyone here has expressed an interest in improved supporter involvement. There aren't many rules, but please take the time to read this message so we're all clear why we're here. This list is a private forum, owned by me. We can speak freely (within the boundaries of the listrules and the law!). So why does this list exist? Why don't we just talk about this on G-Net? For a few reasons: -some people don't know who might be reading G-Net and as such might fear to speak freely -given the fairly vocal cynicism expressed by some of the more regular posters on G-Net, I didn't want to bore people more interested in talking about their time at Hele's (or whatever), and again I didn't want people to be reluctant to post for fear of being shouted down -I think we *might* need some kind of launch at some point in the future, and therefore didn't much want factions / disagreements / plans seepiung out intothe public domain. I see this list as a one-purpose sub-group of G-Net, not a rival, and I see its life as very limited. I'm not saying that we *shouldn't* talk about these issues on GNet, simply that we wouldn't want to bore people, now would we? 2. List rules 2.1 Who's allowed on the list? 2.2 What are we allowed to talk about? 2.3 What are we not allowed to talk about? 2.4 Other rules 2.1 Who's allowed on the list? Basically, anyone. The procedure, as you'll see below, is such that anyone can sign up for the list but for them to join, I have to approve them. Realistically, I can't see me refusing anyone entry but the point of this is that we are talking more or less in private. If (say) a Director of the club decided to join, I'd be likely to canvas the opinions of the members of the list before deciding. Some of you may disagree with this, but this isn't a war, the Directors aren't the enemy and we're not a guerilla army. Nevertheless, I wouldn't want people to be scared to speak. 2.2 What are we allowed to talk about? Supporters' Involvement in Exeter City and relevant associuated topics *ONLY*. Travel arrangements, funny stories, reminiscences about Alan Banks, talesof your woodwork teacher are all perfectly well catered for on GNet or the Exiles list. It might be difficult, but try to keep discussions of what happens on the pitch to a minimum, and even then make sure it's relevant to the supporters' involvement issue. We can also talk about supporters' involvement as it stands at other clubs, in other sports (apparently there are some other sports, I didn't realise...)and so on. 2.3 What are we not allowed to talk about? Everything else! Aside from the City related stuff mentioned above, please also leave out other gossip, and definitely do not talk about the content of the list. If you have a problem with what people are mailing the list about, then contact me ONLY. I'll see what I think and maybe have a quiet word in someone's inbox. 2.4 Other rules The only other rule is that we remain civil to each other. This subject is one that is dear to all our hearts, but let's remember that here, we are all more or less on the same side and there is no need to get abusive or unpleasant. 3. List commands Here are a list of the commands you'll need to operate this list. Send a message to email@example.com containing the command in the BODY (i.e. not the header) of the message. To subscribe to the list: subscribe ecfcok  To unsubscribe from the list: unsubscribe ecfcok  To be sent a list of everyone on the list at present:who ecfcok To be sent a copy of this message:info ecfcok These features (and several others less relevant to us are brought to us by the very lovely missprint.org, who have a very nicely customised version of majordomo. If you are interested in finding out what else the progeam does, send a mail to the same address with the word: Help in the body of the message. 4. Help! If you are having difficulty with any of the above,please feel free to get in touch with me, Tim Hopkins, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I should, I suppose, add that I am doing this not for any personal glory or personal profit, but because I believe that ever greater supporter involvement is, to say the least, a good thing for the football club I love. That's why we're all here.
