Email Forum Posting Guidelines

Meaningful Subject Lines

When sending messages to Drama Email Forums, please make sure that they have a clear and descriptive entry on the Subject: line.

Include Your Signature

Please be sure to sign your full name at the bottom of your posting and include your affiliation(s) and email address. Some subscribers may receive their email messages with the header information stripped away by their local system and therefore cannot otherwise know the author of a particular posting.

Provide Context

Every posting should begin with a clear introduction to the topic, or offer some kind of reference to the topic or a previous posting. There are often several threads of discussion going ton simultaneously, which makes unreferenced postings confusing to readers.

A popular way of providing context is to quote verbatim from the original message. However, keep the quotations short and relevant. Quoting entire messages, signatures and all, can be inconsiderate.

Humor

Humor is appreciated, but please remember that humor in email can easily be misinterpreted. Consider using "emoticons" to more clearly identify a comment as humorous :-), ironic ;-) or sad :-( .
