Audience:  The DCC would like the service to be useable by all members regardless of age.  However, moderation of content would reduce the immediacy of the solution.  We therefore request that all messages posted be ‘rated G’.  The DCC executive reserve the right to ban subscribers to the service at their discretion.

Parents:  This email service will sometimes receive SPAM or other email that may have offensive content. Unfortunately there is nothing the DCC can do to proactively stop this without reducing the effectiveness of the service.

Replies:  When replying to a message that has been sent to DCC Paddle Flash it will reply to the entire DCC Paddle Flash member list not just the person who sent the original message.  When you send a message to DCC Paddle Flash, your email address is removed as the sender and is replaced with DCC Paddle Flash as the sender.  The system does this intentionally to allow members to keep their email address private if they so desire.  For this reason, take care when replying – if you only want the individual then use the link within the message and not your email program’s reply button.  You need to respect that not all subscribers want to have huge volumes of junky email when they occasionally dial-up as this can take a long time over a slow link.

Publicly Viewable messages: The DCC Paddle Flash community is currently set to be a public community.  Any email sent to DCC Paddle Flash will automatically be on a bulletin board (called the Paddle Flash Board) that is viewable by anyone with a web browser regardless of whether the person has joined the community. You should consider this when posting items.

Membership: Membership is not restricted in anyway anyone interested can join.
