Papillon-edu list rules

(You will receive this by email upon list subscription.  Rules may be revised as needed by the list owners and moderators.)


Hello and a Pappy Welcome to fun, informative, non flaming, breeder based list.

Our personal wish is that experienced Pap people receive enjoyment by mentoring a newbie and the newbie gains knowledge that someday they can pass onto other new Pap fanciers. Our goal it to provide a medium for a fun list where people are not afraid to participate, learn and enjoy.

**PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE** This is Papillon-edu List Guidelines.

As a pre list warning posts from Pap-edu do bounce occasionally. If you feel you are missing out on part of a thread or your post did not make it to the list please check the list archives. Bouncing posts are usually caused by to much mail in the subscribers in box or the subscriber being over their email bandwidth.

If you have any software or setting in place to stop or prevent e-mails, such as spam stopping e-mail programs, you will need to enable your system to accept e-mail from papillon-edu@yahoogroups.com and showpaps.com. AOL subscribers need to put papillon-edu@yahoogroups.com into their address book.

Many People call this list the "Breeders List". Pap-edu, welcomes experienced breed fanciers as well as the novice conformation exhibitor wanting to learn showing and breeding Papillons. To become subscribed to Pap-edu new members must have a sponsor already subscribed to Pap-edu for a period of 90 days. Members must own a show prospect or a show quality Papillon to be a member of this list. Papillon-edu is here to provide a positive constructive breed forum that promises to moderate the negative influences that can happen on an email list.

What is Papillon-edu? It is a Private email list for the Papillon fancier who is interested in discussing educational topics such as; Health, Genetics Structure, Type, Temperament, Movement, Breeding, Whelping, Raising puppies, Handling, and Conformation. This list will not treat any Papillon questions as a dumb question. Sometimes, some subjects can be really really informative, and pack full of knowledge. During those periods the list can be high volume posting periods.

Papillon-edu list topics:

a. Topics on breed education is mandatory to the list.
There are other lists for topics that serve as a better forum for discussing; Papillon Club information, rescue, companion pet ownership chat, pappy pet gatherings and animal rights.

b. Post contents will be primarily about Papillons and Phalenes, unless the breed of dog discussed has significant educational value linking it to Papillons and Phalenes.

c. Brags, Wins, New Champions, Litter Announcements and Memorial posts about Papillons are allowed as long as they do not become excessive. Please hold brags until the designated brag days of Sunday and Monday. Brag replies are not necessary for each brag. Note: Majority of the current Papillon-edu listers agree. They would prefer to keep brag replies at a minimum. Sending a brag reply by private email would be very much appreciated.

For the Papillon-edu list to be viable and wonderful resource. The listers should give back some of what they receive. We all need to share our talents, our gifts that we brought to this world.

m. Forwarding, cross posting or cross topics of list mail to non subscribers or other email list(s) is prohibited without the express written consent of Papillon-edu owners and original author of the post.
n. Cross posting; CROSS POSTING a NO NO! A post sent exactly the same to several Papillon lists. No matter if it is CC or BCC folks it is all the same ... it is Cross posting! Could you try really hard to not do that?

Cross topics: Please help keep Papillon-edu discussion unique to Papillons. We hope you won't start the same topic on other email group lists. Crossing topics gets confusing....
