The message forum is open to members and friends of UKAN. On the forum you can exchange email messages and read the archives to find topics that have been discussed in the past. If you would like to join the forum, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to say who you are, explaining whether you are a member or a friend. We will check the lists and if all is well you will be added to the forum. You will receive a 'welcome' message from Google Groups, the software system that runs the forum.
Before you can send a message to the forum you will need to set a password. This is perfectly easy - don't be alarmed - it's just so that Google can be sure it's the right person in the future.
You can arrange to receive every message as soon as it's sent, or no messages at all and just read the messages on the forum website, or one message a day with a list of all the messages of that day. This is very easy to do, and the 'welcome' message will tell you how.
You can leave the forum at any time.
Please do not send any messages that could offend any one else. If you do that repeatedly, the list owner may have to remove you from the list.
