How to use the FO2010 email group

The FO2010 email group is a great place for sharing information, giving support and asking for advice. If you have not already done so, please feel free to join here.

Please think carefully before you send an email to this group. Make sure it is an appropriate email for the group. Please do not overload the group with emails that should really be posted privately to an particular individual.

Setting up a Google group
To find out more about how to set up and moderate a Google Groups email account, please go to the Google Groups website. It is very easy to set up a group - have a look on YouTube for videos that show you how to do it.

There are degress of moderation. The FO2010 group has been set up in such a way that you have to ask me for permission before you can join the group and make a posting. This is quite a stringent moderation which aims to prevent spammers infiltrating the group. You can set up a group so that it is completely open with no 'permission' required to join or post. This makes it a lot easier for people to join, but you are more likely to be spammed.
