Please note that subscriptions are not accepted from "anonymous" email addresses, such as "Hotmail", "Yahoo!" etc.

Can I use the resources from the Ozark website in our group's newsletter/educational materials?
Yes; the resources on the Ozark website are freely available for people to use in educational materials on the website. However, all materials on Ozark remain the intellectual property of the authors, and must be acknowledged as the work of the author.

If you honour these conditions, you are free to use the resources from this site for any non-commercial and educational purposes.


SUBSCRIBERS

How do I get into the Members area of the website?
As a subscriber you are able to get in to the members section of the website, but you need to provide a username and password to the list administrator. You may write direct to the administrator, or fill in the Contact Form on the website, with details of your chosen username and password. You username can just be your first name if you like, but it can be whatever you want. Make the password something relevant to you, which you can remember. Once you supply your own username/password, it will be processed in due course.

How do I reply to posts in the Ozark forum?
Just select "reply" in your email program and write your reply. It will go direct to the Ozark list. Send in only your own reply; do not send replies with large amounts of previous posts remaining at the bottom. If you wish to quote a few lines of a post you are replying to, leave only the pertinent bits in and delete the rest.

How do I send a new post in to the Ozark forum?
Write your post and make the subject field relevant to what you are writing about. Send your post to the ozark address, which is provided to subscribers in the welcome and information message.

Why didn't my post go into the Ozark forum?
Some of the common reasons why posts sent do not make it into the list are:
Addressing: Check that you have addressed the post correctly to go into the forum. Messages sent to the administration address will only be seen by the administrator, so be sure you have addressed the post appropriately. Also, ensure that you are sending posts to the list from the correct subscribed address. You can only post to Ozark from the email address that you subscribed under. If you are sending from a different email address, your post will not go through to the forum, nor will it be seen by the list administrator.
Copies: Posts that are sent with more than one cc: are blocked by a spam filter. Remove any extra addresses from the post and resend.

Where do I get a copy of the Ozark Rules and Information File?
The Ozark rules and Information file can be accessed by clicking the link called OZARK FORUM INFORMATION, which is at the bottom of every post to the list.
