Subject: 	New Welcome to SHAKSPER Message

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

When you first joined this list, you automatically received a welcome 
message that introduced you to the conference and provided you with 
instructions for downloading some of the recent discussions and 
informational files. I have just revised that message to conform to new 
policies that I have instituted. For your information, I am including it 
here.

Subject: Welcome to SHAKSPER: The Global Electronic Shakespeare Conference

Dear SHAKSPERean,

Welcome, as of today, you have been added to SHAKSPER, The Electronic 
Shakespeare Conference, under the user-id to which this message has been 
sent.

SHAKSPER is an edited and moderated academic list that enables ongoing 
discussion of all things Shakespearean. As the list's moderator, I only 
post messages that I believe are of interest to the academic Shakespeare 
community. There are no restrictions on membership to SHAKSPER; 
significant questions and comments from actors, directors, or any member 
of list are welcome. The source of the post is not the issue; the issue 
is its relevance to the broad scope of academic interests in Shakespeare 
studies. For more information about this policy, see 
<http://www.shaksper.net/archives/2006/0000.html>. Also, I encourage 
members to limit their submissions to a few per week and not more than 
one a day, reserving the right to distribute submissions as I see fit.

If you are joining SHAKSPER for the first time, you should begin by 
acquainting yourself with the "culture" of the list. One way to do this 
is by visiting the SHAKSPER web site at www.shaksper.net and having a 
look at some of the past discussions and resources available to you, 
including a very powerful search engine that enables you to query the 
entire SHAKSPER archives since the list's inception in 1990. You should 
also send the following list of one-line commands to

 , leaving the subject line blank:

GET LISTSERV COMMANDS
GET SHAKSPER ANNOUNCE
GET SHAKSPER NETIQUET
GET SHAKSPER LOG0603A
GET SHAKSPER LOG0603B

In return, you will receive the following introductory files:

	1. A brief list of LISTSERV commands for SHAKSPER.

	2. The SHAKSPER Announcement to share with others who may be
	   interested in joining SHAKSPER.

	3. A message from me to the list discussing issues of netiquette.

	4. A number of recent logbooks of SHAKSPER. These logs will give
            you a sense of the sort of discourse that takes place on
            SHAKSPER and the direction that discussion threads often
            take.

These files will arrive as E-MAIL and can be retrieved from the SHAKSPER 
file server at any time should you ever require updated or additional 
copies (see LISTSERV COMMANDS for further information about the file 
server and its use.) The files may also be read at the SHAKSPER website 
--  www.shaksper.net -- should you choose to do so.

If you have questions, please contact me.

Once again, welcome to SHAKSPER!

Yours,
Hardy M. Cook (Editor)
