The purpose of this Blog is to give voice to those topics that are generally considered off-topic on the Czernowitz-L Discussion Group. Here you can discuss how the List is run, how the Website is run, how the blog is run, politics (oy), Yiddish, the latest petitions, humour, etc. You can post photos, music, short videos, links – almost anything that doesn’t quite fit within the List’s mission of genealogy and related historical research, but has some relationship to our common heritage and pursuits.
Here’s what you have to do to post:
1. You must be a member of the Czernowitz-L Discussion Group.
2. You have to register. All you have to do is send an email to <email@example.com>. In the subject line put: ‘register’; in the text put your log-in name (the name you wish be identified by when you post); then put in a ‘password’ you can remember. I will register your user name and password. I will need a working email address too. No-one will see this email address. If you don’t give one, I’ll use the one from the message you send.
3. When I complete your registration, the blog software will automatically confirm your registration. You have to log in to post, but not to read the blog or to comment on someone else’s post. Once you’re set up, you can post. Read the page ‘How to make your first post’. Your posts are NOT moderated, but please sign your name to them. Your email address is not necessary.
Anyone can comment, list member or not. We are continuing with comments not being moderated. But if this proves troublesome, comments will be screened for nastyness and spam. If you have a ‘link’ in your comment, it will be held for moderation, as often times the bad guys leave comments with links in them that take you to places you don’t really want to go.
Note that there is a difference between a ‘comment’ and a ‘post’. A comment adds information relating to an existing post and appears underneath. It does not start a new topic or thread. A post generally presents a new topic or a significant departure from existing posts. You have to be registered and logged in in order to create a new post.
Logging in: Notice, when you’re on the Home page of the Blog there is a ‘sidebar’ (menu). Right after the Archives, there’s a section called ‘Meta’. One of the options is ‘Log in’. Click on that and you will see a screen will ask you for your log in name and password. Fill it in and click on ‘Log in’.
The address (URL) of the blog is: http://ehpes.com/blog1
Your administrators are Edgar, Jerome, Bruce. We’re hoping that after you get used to things that everything will run without administrator intervention. You can contact Jerome at <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you’re having difficulty.
Of course, suggestions for improvement are always welcome.
