Mission Statement

By Popular Request the Theatre Organ Home Page announces a mailing list for the exclusive use of Theatre Organ lovers. Topics of discussion can include pipe theatre organs as well as electronics, even Hammonds, for we have nothing against good organ music of any kind.

If it has to do with good organ music of any kind, you may post it. Technical questions and posts as well as technique and other musical questions may be posted. This list is the "folksy" list. We aren't hung up power freaks wanting to control the subject you post down to the last letter you type. Feel free to talk about anything remotely related to theatre organs as well within reason. A group of theatre organ folk restoring an organ don't talk about strictly technical stuff at their meetings, either. It's unnatural. The list is unmoderated.

To post to the List, send your post to:

Theatreorgans-L@theatreorgans.com

Note that only subscribed list members may post.

To Subscribe to the list, you simply issue commands to the automated ListServer as follows below.

If in doubt what to do, Email the Webmaster and ask.

Helpful Hint

To keep track of all the mailing lists you may subscribe to, in an orderly fashion, we recommend that you maintain several E-Mail accounts. These can be obtained free from various places such as Hotmail.com, or theatreorgans.com. We then suggest you sign up one name to one list. For example, if you subscribe to the Hammond List, the PipeChat-L list and the Theatreorgans-L list, it may be helpful to have 4 email accounts. The first, is your regular EMAIL account, which you don't want polluted with posts from anywhere. Just private email, so when you log on you have your email there.

 

Then maintain 3 additional separate email accounts. Subscribe to each list under a different account. To really be spiffy, get an email program like Thunderbird that allows you to read all of your pop3 type email in one program, sorted by folders.

The Rules of Conduct

1. Introduce yourself. It's a great way to make friends

2. Use of appropriate humor is ALWAYS encouraged.

3. Be polite to the other people on the list. Just because you may not share the same view point with someone else doesn't mean you need to start a war.

4. Being open minded is the key to getting along with others.

5. Keep things on topic. If you wander off the topic of the list, please keep it interesting & humorous at the very least.It may keep you from getting flamed.

6. If you have a problem with another list member, don't take action yourself. Let the mean and grumpy list administrators remind you that sometimes silence is golden. Do not flame members via the list. This list is for friendly folks not old grumps. Only the list administrators are allowed to be crotchety.

7. When replying to a previous post, please delete what is not important to what you are saying as best you can. In other words, quote only what is relevant to what your post is about. There's nothing more discouraging then scrolling through 2000 words of a previous post before we get to what you have to say.

8. You may use the list to sell something (i.e. an instrument) by using the list as a means of advertising... Although there are more appropriate places to do that such as the Theatre Organ Classifieds. All we ask is that extensive transactions between two (or more)individuals remain private. If telling everyone may save an instrument (especially a historic one), by all means post away.

9. Do post about concerts and other important events. Just keep them brief and to the point. Do post about the size of your organ and any hints and kinks you have ran into in the past.

10. Topics of electronic organs are encouraged. Many list members currently own electronic organs and like to hear about how to fix them.

11. Any Problems with the servers will be fixed as soon as we know what the problem is (and how to fix it). Just be patient if such a problem occurs.

12. Last But NOT least, HAVE FUN and share your organic experiences. That's what the list was created for.
