Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is GreenYes?
GREENYES is an open
(unmoderated) discussion forum focusing on policies and strategies
needed to advance sustainable resource policies. We seek to
advance serious discussion from a broad range of viewpoints.
Why can't I post to the list?
The number one reason members cannot post: You probably are sending from a different email address than the one you subscribed with. This can happen a number of ways:
How do I post an email to greenyes?
How else may I subscribe?
How do I unsubscribe?
Go to GreenYes on Google Groups
Why didn't my application for subscription go through?
You must write a brief sentence or two explaining who you are and why you want to join on the google groups subscription page. If you leave it blank or write something vague or incomprehensible, your application will be deleted without comment. We get a number of automated attempts to join the list just so they can send automated spam. You do not have to be an environmental professional to join GreenYes. In order to protect our list members from spam, we just want to be sure you're not a spam robot.
Where is the latest archive?
what's this firstname.lastname@example.org thing in the old archives?
Hey, who doesn't hate spam? As of 2003, all archives are doctored so that email addresses are no longer functional. This allows us to host an archive, yet keep our subscribers' email addresses out of the reach of email harvesters. Depending on the time available, previous years may also be harvester-proofed.
What if I have a problem or a question?
List members should
generally take charge of their own subscription and unsubscription. Examples of when subscription changes that the list owner should
handle include: a. email addresses that are no longer valid or b. email addresses which have trouble sending and
receiving to the list or via Google Groups. Please - this is just a tiny part of
what I do for GRRN - do not email about subscription unless
you have major problems because, honestly, it may take me a
while to reply.
If you have problems with list members which you cannot address via civil discussion off-list, and it pertains to the list, please forward as an attachment the offensive email with a discription of the problem.
Is there a fee?
No, there is no fee, but you may make a donation to GRRN to help defray the costs of web administration. Note: if you do make a donation because you like our list, please let us know that is your reason for the donation!
