HOW TO GET OFF THE STORYTELL LIST

=====================================

(this comes first, because if you need it, you need it NOW)


Goodbye! We'll miss you. Bookmark this page just in case you ever want to get back. And wear a scarf!-- it can get cold out there! Love, Storytell.

Want to get back on the Storytell list? Use the same page you unsubscribed with http://lists.storynet.org/lists/info/storytell

We're so glad you came! Lurk a bit, and join in the discussion. Hello!

Most of the following customary code of conduct is not restricted to the Storytell list, but applies throughout the 'net.

Because people are joining all the time, and because people who've been on the list for a long time sometimes forget, for awhile we found ourselves repeatedly posting certain suggestions and requests. While they may look like a bunch of "thou shalt nots," we're a pretty mellow bunch, actually, and nobody's keeping score. But Storytell is an unusually busy list, and things go more smoothly when we tend to follow these

OFFICIAL LIST PURPOSES

=======================


STORYTELL, sponsored by the National Storytelling Network is a forum for discussion about storytelling. All persons interested in storytelling are invited to participate: professional storytellers, amateur storytellers, people concerned with the rich history of storytelling, people who enjoy listening to stories, and those who speculate about the place of storytelling in the 21st century. The list promotes collaboration among those interested in storytelling, reflecting diverse viewpoints from around the world. The list is a place for discussion of issues and interaction on topics of concern to the storytelling community. It can serve as a source for information on conferences, workshops, and events or a place to ask (and answer) questions about derivations of stories, intellectual freedom concerns, or organization of storytelling events. The Storytell community is diverse in many ways -- profession, age, ethnicity, geography, gender, class, etc. -- a fact participants might consider in posting and reading messages.

This file has largely outlived its purpose, and is here mostly for historical reasons; none the less people keep finding it, and we'll try to keep the information. Suggestions/corrections are welcome
