Ask Anything

There are a lot of basic questions on Mail Art that are often asked and answered. This group might be the first place to look for answers. I will do my best to answer, but hope that other members can help out as well.

Thank you stripygoose! I'll look at other pages. I'm planning to always respond through the mail but am trying to get away from spending too much time online...that's why I love mail-art! I'll find a good balance so received mail-art can be seen and shared here too.

Comment by stripygoose yesterday
Giselle - no rules. Some blog everything some don't. Some blog in batches. Some have spreadsheets some are more haphazard. Have a browse on people's pages and you'll get an idea. Most people do like their m-a to be acknowledged in some way though - comment/email/in post, so they know it's arrived.
Just join in and work it out as you go.

Sorry if this is a repeat question, I'm new. What is the etiquette for posting images of received mail-art? Is it required? I'm used to tangible, through the mail only correspondence.  I don't want to offend by not posting what I receive or not communicating through this site. What are the rules?

Yes thanks Ruud for everything behind the scenes. Sometimes if I can't find someone right away on this site I google the name and country and that finds a link to their iuoma page :>)

Ah, good to know, Ruud. Today I was able to find a couple that hadn't been showing up before. Thanks for all you do! And thank you,    for letting me know your process/workaround!

Thanks Ruud.

The search routines are giving problems right now. Ning is working on that.

Jan, I'm finding (or not finding) members profiles through the usual way as well. Just searched for someone and they didn't come up with their correct name or country. They are here which I found through the friends list of someone else. A bit round the houses.
