FORUM PRIVACY: SSOF is a private forum for registered and current owners of Superformance S-1s only. Any discussions and our transmitted materials are not to leave this forum without expressed permission of both the author, contributors and the forum moderator. Breach of privacy under the previous conditions can result in immediate and permanent termination of this forum without notice.------------------------------
The SSOF mailing forum is a network programmed to deliver messages into the normal E-mail boxes of all registered SSOF members. With this tool, members can send out E-mail to all their fellow members with one click. Other members can reply to all their fellow members as well. Good communication is the key to success in any large organization, and this no exception. To make the best of this tool, there are a few guidelines to follow…
1.) To POST a message, simply address your E-mail to email@example.com - You must post
from a computer that has it's return address entered as the same as the E-mail address you signed up with.
2.) To REPLY to a message, simply press the REPLY button if you want to reply to the list as a whole, or press
the REPLY ALL button to post to the sender AND the entire group, then you can go up and delete the "group"
address if you want the mail to go only to the sender. The most preferred selection is to reply just to the GROUP,
which then you just simply press the REPLY button..
3.) Be sure to sign your message with your REAL NAME & CAR NUMBER so everyone knows who you are!
We will try to list your return name at the top of the Email with that same information, so it will automatically
appear… this way you won't have to type the info in every time manually. As an
example, your signature should look like this, John Doe - 1001
4. ) If you plan on posting a message not really directly related to the Superformance cars (such as events coming up,
miscellaneous questions, etc), then on the subject line before the subject text place this tag <NON-SPF>
5.) Keep messages as short as possible. * Cut out and trim any and all unneeded text when replying!!!
Please "trim your posts", which involves manually dragging your cursor across any unnecessary text after you hit
the *reply* button to highlight it, then delete it leaving only the text, or a portion of it which you are replying to
or referring to. Please also delete the footer (links, advertising, etc) at the bottom of each post as it is automatically
generated each and every post. Doing this cleans up the messages, makes them easier to read, reduces mail size so
more can fit in the archive space as well as reduce reading length for *digest* subscribers (who receive 25
messages in one mail where they can see the same repetitive content posted over and over and over again.)
Following these few simple procedures will assist in greatly enhancing your everyone's posting pleasure!
6.) Since there are many members also on this list, there may be as many as 20 emails per day seen here. Keep your
your messages to only on-topic subjects. However, there is nothing wrong with occasional friendly greetings,
posting parts for sale or wanted to buy, questions, etc!
7.) Please contribute often. We'd like to hear everyone on here at one time or another!
8.) If the email traffic is too much for you, request the DAILY DIGEST mode, where only one E-mail per day will be
delivered, with all the day's content inside.
9.) If the traffic is STILL too much, you can opt to have your messages stored on the Yahoogroups.com site with the
No E-Mail (Web View Only) mode. There you can only see and read your mail by going to the yahoogroups any
time you wish. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/superformance-s1/messages
(You must create a user name and password on Yahoo to do so)… http://groups.yahoo.com
10.) It is highly suggested that you set up a "Mail Filter" to automatically separate your mail list mail from you regular
daily deliveries. This will keep your mail box uncluttered, and separate. This option is accessed in your mail
reading program. Go here… http://performanceunlimited.com/mailfilter
11.) If mail can not be delivered to you either due to a server outage or your mail quota on your server is full, then
messages will come back to SCOF as "Bounced." Your account is automatically deactivated, where it will have to
be manually reactivated during site maintenance once a week. If your account repeats the bounce, then you will be
placed on DIGEST mode. If the bouncing does not cease, then you will be place on web-view mode, or eliminated
from the list. KEEP YOUR MAIL BOXES CLEANED OUT!
SSOF Mailing List (yahoogroups.com) Delivery Options...------------------------------
The members of SSOF are highly active on the mailing list, and you can sometimes see an average of 5-10
E-mails a day. It is highly recommended that you create a Mail Filter sin your mailing program on your computer
to better manage the volume of mails. You can do this by clicking on the mail filter button at the top of this page.
1.) Individual E-Mail (Instant messaging) mode; This sends you the individual E-mails as they are sent.
On the spot. This is great to get up to the minute information. This is your default setting.
2.) Digest mode; This packs all the day's Emails for you, into one single email sent to you
at the end of each day, or when the bundle reaches 25 mails, whichever comes first. This is a good way
to get all the information without overloading your mailbox if you already get a lot of mail.
3.) No Email (web view only) mode; This is the least desirable, however, it is better than unsubscribing
completely. With this mode, you simply have to go to yahoogroups.com to view your
messages, as if it were a web page. The problem with this is if you forget to look at your
messages, you'll never see them.
(in any of the above settings, with a yahoogroups user name and password, you can go back on the yahoo
site and read archived mail at any time you wish. Create one if you have not done so at http://groups.yahoo.com )
4.) Unsubscribe; This completely takes you off the mailing list, where no one will be able to
get any information to you. Once taking on this fatal position, your only option is to resign on
to your account, and ask permission from the administrator. We highly discourage this option
unless deciding to quit the group entirely, permanently, or unless your car has been sold. There will be a
minimum 6 month restriction on resubscribing if choosing this option.
SSOF Mailing List Conduct…----------------
TOPICS: While discussing important issues regarding our Superformance S-1's is the main purposes of this forum, it would get very boring if that's all that transpired. Therefore you will find a bountiful exchange of ideas, technical questions and answers, as well as recreational information and personal reports on the "latest happenings." This forum is about the "owners" of Superformance S-1's, not merely the cars by themselves, so a broad range of non-S1 topics will surely be covered, especially during the "off-season" months of October through March. If it were just all tech talk, it would become very boring, very quickly. If you feel the "personal" messages sent are not of interest, simply use the "delete" key.
