(back) Subject: WELCOME to DIYAPASON-L From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Sun, 9 Jan 2000 19:41:59 -0600   With this posting the new DIYAPASON-L mailing list is now open for business. I want to thank each of you that has decided to join it. From some of the comments that were sent with the requests to join, this list is one that has been needed for those of us who are doing our own instruments.   As of this posting there are 46 members on the list with most requesting individual postings. And from the comments I have gotten we seem to run the gamut of Classical and Threatre Organ folk, Tracker to Electric Actions, folks doing everything themselves to those whose instrument was mainly done from professional, and those still in the "discovery" stage to those who could be considered "serious" amateur builders. We also have a couple of professional organbuilders that have joined including several members of the AIO.   And I think we will be growing over the next several days as other people catch up on their mail and see that announcements about the list. Also, there are people that have sent in requests and got a copy of the Charter sent back to them to read and then send back that they agree with the Guidelines presented in it. I almost want to say that I am sorry about the insistence of my getting an agreement from everyone but I am not! I want to keep this list on a very narrow focus so I want everyone's agreement that they will abide with the Guidelines.   This list will be what YOU make it as long as your topics are concerned with building your own pipe organ at home. PLEASE, PLEASE, Pretty PLEASE do not use this list for "general" organ chat or to be a "stoplist junkie", there are plenty of other lists out there for that. This list is for us to share our ideas, ask questions relating to our home instrument, finding out about resources for getting pipes and parts and generally getting the help and input from the other members. It is also a place where members can post a "For Sale" list of unneeded parts and post "Want To Buy" lists looking for materials. And I hope that each of us, especially when replying to a person's question, will put some thought into it and do a clear explanation.   This is also the place where we can share our successes!! Especially, when we have gotten through finishing a section of our project and we need to share the excitement with others who will understand why we are excited. And sharing that excitement might just be the boost another member needs to forge ahead through a difficult period with their project. Success breeds success!   Earlier I spoke about "stoplist junkies" in a kidding way but there are those out there that just seem to always ask for stoplist to collect, well, I guess that is what they do with them.<G> I have set up a section of the web site to have links to the pages various members have put together for their own instruments and several people have sent in their URLs which have been added to that page. One member has offered to do web pages for members with the stoplist and other information on their organs. I will let him identify himself to the rest of the list. As I told him in a note back, there is space on the server here to house these pages. If you are interested, when he identifies himself, please contact him privately. Since may people also have, as part of some software package, the ability to do their own web pages but don't have a place to put them please contact me privately about getting a page on this site. And a couple of you sent in the URLs for your business sites, I will add those to the general links page shortly.   Finally, just a couple of brief reminders. Please avoid excessive quoting in replies, just quote what might be pertinent to your reply. And PLEASE, as the topic changes change the Subject line to reflect the new topic. If you are receiving the list via the Digest, and you use the reply function, please put the topic in your Subject line. Since the daily digests will be archived, keeping the topic correct will make it easier for anyone of us to find something in the future.   And with all of that, the list is now open for business. May I suggest so that the members can get to know each other, that each of you send a short posting about who you are and what your project or interest is for joining this list.   Thank you and again, WELCOME   David ********************************************************* DIYAPASON-L - a mailing list for the owners/builders of their own home pipe organ
