WSFA Email Lists
WSFA has several email lists:
- The general chat list for discussion and announcements. Any past
or present WSFA member can subscribe to it, and can post to it even if
they aren't subscribed to it. Volume fluctuates, but the average over
the three years it's been running has been about seven messages a day.
Please contact me if you're a interested in
subscribing, or in reading the complete online archives, which are
indexed by date and by sender. There are currently 47 subscribers,
including nine of the ten WSFA officers.
- A list for urgent announcements, such as changes in meeting
locations. It averages less than one message a month. Only I can post
to it. Anyone at all may subscribe to it. Every WSFA member should be
on this list, if they aren't on the chat list, as should everyone
remotely interested in WSFA. All messages to this list are CCd to the
chat list, so if you're on that list you don't need to be on this one.
- A list for announcing that a new WSFA Journal is available online.
Only I can post to it. Anyone at all may subcribe to it. I only
announce when I place a new WSFA Journal online, not when I
place another back issue online. (We currently have the past 30 years
of WSFA Journals online, and everyone
is free to read them.) The volume of this list is one message per
month. All messages to this list are CCd to the chat list, so if
you're on that list you don't need to be on this one.
- A list on which I announce the location of and directions (car and
transit) to the upcoming meeting. This is intended for people new to WSFA.
- A Yahoogroups list for Capclave staff.
- New as of July 2004: A list for announcing theater parties and other
WSFA activities. Only Lee Gilliland posts to this list. All messages
to this list are CCd to the chat list, so if you're on that list you
don't need to be on this one.
Please contact me about any of these lists.
I guarantee all messages posted to the lists I run (all but the last
two listed) to be free of viruses, worms, web bugs, HTML, attachments,
pop-ups, pop-unders, and anything else potentially dangerous or
unwelcome. Email containing any such that's directed to the chat list
will go to me instead. Email that's over 90k in length directed either
to me or to the chat list will be discarded unread. I apologize for
the inconvenience, but the trillions of spams, viruses, and
other junk messages that have made email nearly unusable have left
me no alternative.
Colleen Cahill maintains a list of members' email addresses,
street addresses, and phone numbers, intended for one-on-one
communication. This list is not available on the web, but Colleen
will email it to any WSFA member who wants it. Please use
her list only for one-on-one communications. People who aren't
subscribed to the chat list presumably don't want messages intended
for all WSFAns.
There's a list of members' email addresses that was formerly
at http://www.wsfa.org/members.htm. After
it got spammed four years ago, I moved it to a semi-secret URL that
anyone in fandom should be able to figure out after looking in the
original location. This list is seriously out of date, and I may
There's a Capclave LiveJournal at
It was created by Elizabeth Twitchell in March 2005. It's open to everyone
interested in WSFA's annual convention, Capclave.
There's a WSFA Wiki at http://www.zipbeep.org/wsfa.cgi. It was created
in April 2005 by Steve Smith. It's open to everyone interested in WSFA.
