how they "work"
is that a real poncho or is that a sears poncho?
folks, from a somewhat technologically challenged guy how do these
work and how do i get in on them?
Hello Todd, usb (I think I want to talk with you directly soon), and any
In a nutshell, here are how 'vines' "work":
Someone (maybe even you) has a recording that they would like to share
with the List community. They make a post to the list indicating such; in the
subject line they put "VO" (vine offer) and what they have to share (ex.
750427 Boston early show, or Barcelona '88 DVD). Then, In the body of the
message they put their user name, real name, or email address, followed by a
space and two arrows (<<). That's it...
Someone (maybe even you) sees that message - either from a group email,
digest, or at the yahoo page - and desires that selection for their
collection; they respond to the message (changing nothing in the subject
line) by adding their name to the message (ex = firstguy-US
<<[EMAIL PROTECTED] <<). After they post their message, they
contact the person ahead of them in line privately with their snailmail info.
Then they wait for whatever it was that they wanted.
Oh yeah, they will, inturn, be contacted privately by the next person in
line. This might happen right away - or much later. Regardless, the member is
morally obligated to send the original disk(s) they received - after they have
made a copy for themselves - to whomever is next on the list.
This is called "sharing" the music and it is something that the List
promotes. Of course, private trades and B&P between members is also
acceptable and encouraged, but PLEASE keep your transactions off-list.
If you happen to want to trade for music, or if you do not have burning
capability and wish to explore B&P, check out the Files section for
"member trade lists"; there are several. If you have something to offer, post
your list there; or if you have something you'd like to share, start a vine.
You'll love it; it's a way of life...
