TGG has an e-mail listserv which we use to communicate with our members. If you would like to be on that listserv, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or enter your email in the box on the menu on the left of this window.
Some notes about the TGG Listserv:
Your e-mail is private, until and unless you post to the listserv - Only group administrators have access to the membership list, but if you send an email to the listserv, your e-mail address is available / visible to all of its members.
RESPECT - Just like in our meetings, respect is of the utmost importance. Please remember to respect others' opinions (and their right to have and express them) and others right to privacy (don't tell everyone you know that so-and-so is on the TGG listserv, it's rude and they might not want people to know) with regard to the listserv.
NETIQUETTE - The listserv has a large subscription membership. To keep everyone happy, please follow good "netiquette" when sending or replying to e-mail to/from the listserv. This means no "YELLING" (using ALL CAPS for the entire message), and no unnecessary attachments. E-mail is a form of written communication and deserves the same treatment as any other. If you write poorly in e-mail, people may form an opinion of you that you don't want / don't think you are sending. Use spellcheck, punctuation, and good grammar. It's a good habit to be in that applies to all aspects of your online communications. If you'd like to learn more, OnlineNetiquette.com is an excellent resource.
Finally, please be careful to type your email address correctly - We can't email you if we don't have the correct contact information.
News - If you run across a really cool, or just really interesting news article, please feel free to forward it to the listserv.
Events - If you are aware of any events in the area that are appropriate to share with the group (movies, performances, etc.), please feel free to forward the details of those to the group. We can even post those on the TGG calendar (click the Suggest link on the front page).
Discussion - One of the things we try to do with the listserv is to continue the discussion we have at our weekly meetings. If you have thoughts about the topic in the meeting, or have another topic you'd like to discuss, please do so.
Announcements - Weddings, Committment Ceremonies, Birthdays, Graduation, etc., etc... if you have a big event in your life and would like to share it, please do.
Offensive Material - Lewd or otherwise offensive material (things you wouldn't share with your grandparents) is not allowed. Don't do it.
Hate Mail - Remember respect. If you disagree with what someone has to say or share on the listserv, that's okay, just don't respond with hate. The adult thing to do is to find out why you disagree and approach the topic (not the person) in an intelligent well thought out fashion. We want discussion on the listserv, not hatred.
Forwards - E-mail forwards are strongly discouraged unless they are announcements for important events or resources useful to the group and its members.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
