Posting Guidelines
People tend to drop off the list if they get too many e-mails that are off topic.  We want to keep everybody on the list so that we can share important club information.  Here's some guidelines for what to post.
  • Announcements - Ride Announcements, meeting announcements, last minute updates to club activities.
  • Invitations - This is a great way to invite other members to activities that you are attending.
  • Local Bicycling News - Pass along local announcements that may affect our ability to use bicycles in the Greater Akron Area.
  • Positive, Constructive Feedback - Suggestions are welcome, but our volunteers get discouraged if you're negative.
Avoid the Following
  • Discussions - Try to solicit feedback to yourself and avoid starting a discussion on the e-mail list.  Reply to the sender, not the group.
  • Topics of Political Nature - we like you because you ride a bike, not because you're conservative or liberal.
  • Quick, Nasty replies - If you see a topic that makes you mad, avoid hitting the send button on the reply for a while.
We reserve the right to moderate

If we think you're too off topic.  We may send you a warning, or put you in the Administrator Review queue for a while, delaying the delivery of your messages.  We want to keep this list about the Akron Bicycle Club.
