Re: Need advice on web groups! (med length)
Poster: "D'elle Monte" <SCHOENTHALERM@jefferson.student.wlu.edu>
It's true that we have a mailing list and a website and god knows
what else for Atlantian e-sources, but SixDegrees is basically an
online community where people find out how they're connected to other
people in the world. My purpose in wanting to start an Atlantian
group is not necessarily to be a resource to Atlantians, but:
1) a resource to non-Scadians who might be interested in medieval
groups in the VA area. In SixDegrees, you can search for groups that
you might be interested in, and therefore, someone who had never
heard of the SCA might find out about their local group in this way.
2) a support group for Atlantians which is convenient as well.
Digging around the Atlantian site for information might be annoying
for some people. Others might not like the flood of email they get
from the Merry Rose which doesn't necessarily apply to them. In
SixDegrees, they have the option to receive posts by email or by
site only. So they would be able to check the bulletin boards at
their leisure, or receive info by email if they wished.
SixDegrees also features group chatrooms, for people who might enjoy
a real-time chat rather than email discussions, DegreeMail, a
message system that allows mail communication without revealing your
email address (for those who prefer anonymity), and a few other
helpful options and tools. It's worth checking out = )
Enough plugging for SixDegrees! = )
Fare thee well,
D'elle Monte -
It's a household name.
