Welcome to the list!  It seems like you're doing it right.

Just a couple of pointers:
- If you have selected the digest option and you receive the list digests,
DO NOT reply to them.
- Try to trim the message tails to minimize the message size.
-Many email clients organize emails according according to their subject in
what is sometimes called conversation view.  Change the subject to start a
new discussion or if the discussion has shifted.  Don't change the subject
if you want to keep people engaged.
- Some people have complained about the quantity of emails clogging up
their inbox.  Most email clients have the ability to set rules so that any
incoming email from cnc-list@cnc-list.com gets redirected to a separate
folder instead of the inbox.  You can turn the incoming mail notifications
on/off for this separate folder.
- You can search the list with a Google phrase: "site: cnc-list" and then
add your search criteria.  Or by going to:
- Use Picasa, Photo Bucket, Google Drive,  or similar to upload any photos
or files and then share a hyperlink in your email.  Trying to get your
photos below the size threshold is a challenge and besides it just uses
more bandwidth that Stu has to pay for.
- We've all developed a friendly closing by which we state our name, vessel
name, make, model, and hailing port.
- Numerous people over the years have questioned the idea of an email
list.  Suggestions of all sorts have come through for forums and Facebook
pages.  Long story short, we're all happy to be members of such a great
community.  If you don't like it, we'll be sorry to see you go.
- This is Stu's list.  He graciously continues to acts as the ADMIN despite
no longer owning a C&C.  He also pays for the list out of pocket and rarely
askes for any contributions.  If you feel so moved please give financial
support.  IIRC Stu had suggested that amongst the 700 list members if
everyone paid ~$10 per year it would cover his expenses.  You can arrange
payment here: http://www.cncphotoalbum.com/chandlery_2/store.php?crn=226

Any other questions or things we can do to make your experience better just
let us know.
