The PPCTU Forum

Dear Chapter members,
 
Short:
We are moving our forum/listserv from Yahoo groups to Groups.io If you are already a member of our group.io forum, the only change you need to do is to use the address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and not This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
Long:
In an effort to keep up with technology and have our chapter use the latest and greatest we are moving our forum from Yahoo to groups.ioGroups.io is a modern cloud software that many other organizations similar to us are moving to, it offers all the features we had before plus some new and exciting ones (like Polls, Knowledgebase, Chat and more), but mostly, it is stable and easy to use.
 
If you were subscribed to our Yahoo forum, you probably have received an email recently welcoming you to groups.io when we completed our transfer of data from Yahoo.
 
The changes needed for this transition to be as smooth as possible are minimal, you only need to remember that in order to address the chapter, you will need to send emails to:
 
This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
and NOT This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
We would like the cutover date to be October 1st, 2018 and as of that date, we will retire our Yahoo group.
In order to make sure we are all comfortable with groups.io we would like to ask you all to start using groups.io (soft cutover) as of September 15th (or even as of today).
 
Here is some more info on the groups.io forum:

PPTU Board Moderation Guidelines

Derogatory, obscene or otherwise unsuitable usernames or content will not be tolerated.

The hosts and administrators have the ability to remove objectionable comments and questions.

In a case of a repeat offense, the administrators may ban temporarily or indefinitely a user from participating on the forum.

Business advertising for personal gain is prohibited. You are allowed to recommend and write reviews for corporate products and services in moderation. You may also advertise your own (individual) products and services as long as it doesn't break any other rules and is done in moderation.

Non-moderators should refrain from attempting to enforce the rules themselves. If they are concerned about a possible rule violation, they should contact the moderator by sending an email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Members that do not abide by the rules may be subject to having their posts edited or deleted, their member account permanently banned from further access and/or deleted without notice.

Optional Forum Settings

There are several options as to how messages from the forum will come to you. The default is for the forum to send you each message posted to the group as it arrives. A second option is to receive a daily digest, a single email message containing all the messages posted during the last day. A third option is no email delivery, using instead an online archive of messages. However, attachments that go out with messages via the other options are NOT kept in the archive, so sometimes you miss out on some things with this option. Lately, forum traffic has run between 100 and 300 messages per month. If you would like to use one of these options and aren't familiar with how to change this setting, or if you encounter other problems with using the forum, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we'll try to help you.

There's one more option that wasn't previously mentioned, and one that you should seriously consider even if you don't want your mail box full of trip reports, information on local streams, tying hints and all that other wasted space. There's also an option to receive important announcements only. These would typically be last minute cancellations of meetings due to inclement weather.

It should be noted that if Montgomery County has canceled ALL evening (not just school) activities due to the weather, our meeting will be canceled.
