The KTCCCA has setup at no charge a listserve for Kentucky coaches.
You must subscribe to the listserve. It is an email opportunity to
communicate with track & cross country coaches across the state about meets,
general information, and any questions on training, scheduling, technique
etc. There are presently over 650 coaches on the listserve which gives us a
powerful tool to communicate and share. Go to the website below and follow
directions for KYTF, the Kentucky Track & Field listserve. If you wish to
unsubscribe to the list instructions are on the same page.
Subject: Miss Manners
Please let me welcome all the new subscribers to the list. We are all glad
that you've decided to join us. I have assumed, usurped, or basically
appointed myself as the list "prude" where it comes to proper email
etiquette. It seems to be time once again to address that eternal
question: "When is the use of the 'Reply' button appropriate?"
Use the reply button for list messages you're responding to if your
response is intended to reach everyone on the list or for furthering the
discussion. If you're merely responding to the individual poster then
create a new message addressed to that person alone.
Methods for facilitating private responses to list posts:
1. Always include your email address in your response. You can do this
manually or develop a signature file that is automatically appended to
each outgoing email. (When you type your email address in most mail
programs it will actually appear in another color and can be clicked on by
the recipient to email you directly. (Please reference my signature at the
bottom of this post) Your mail program "help" files will instruct you on
how to make a signature file.
2. More difficult but effective is to hit "reply" to bring up a message
box. Scroll down through the address information that now appears in your
message box. You should find the sender's address printed in another
color. You can highlight that address with the mouse and left button.
Press "control-c" to copy the address. Open a new message. Place your
cursor in the "To:" box and press "control-v" to paste the address in the
box. Proceed as normal. (I said it was more difficult but not really hard
to do.) An example follows:
----- Original Message -----
From: James Key <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
To: James Key <mailto:email@example.com>
Sent: Wednesday, February 14, 2001 12:10 PM
3. Please remember not everyone wants or needs to know that you are
attending a particular meet, requesting meet information, or that you
remembered a great time you had with the recipient when you ran together
in high school. If you post to the list, hundreds of people will read what
It only takes a moment to learn the necessary skills. Please don't just
shrug this off but consider that other people are doing business here and
your thoughtlessness may impede them. Thanks for your kind attention.
