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.

Melanie Reed--- on the photo page of your home page, choose (click on) the photo you wish to delete.  On the upper right hand side there will be a button that says "options" (it also has a pic of a couple gears)  there are three choices in the drop down menu: edit details, add tags, delete .

How do I delete one of my uploaded photos?

Comment by Mel Anie on January 22, 2021 at 4:01pm

Allison, I think:  if you look at the top of the page, there's 'My Page' i the menu. click on that, it'll take you to your personal page. Scroll down a little and there will be a section called 'Profile Information'. To the right of that, there is a little grey 'edit' box. Click on that and you can edit your address details. I'll post this on your comments wall too.

I have moved.  I can't find the address list.  How do I update my address?

Thank you, Heide!

Comment by Heide Monster on January 19, 2021 at 2:08pm

Sharon, I was confused by this too at first.  But you can just send mail. 

The advantage of the friend thing is you can send messages privately.

Comment by Sharon Hall Shipp on January 19, 2021 at 1:21pm

Just a bit confused. I've joined a couple of groups in which people say they are are happy to send and receive work but do I have to send them a friend request first? 

Comment by Mail Art Martha on December 8, 2020 at 6:20pm

Heide; on storing artistamps. A very perceptive friend, not a mail artist so double so, gave me a plastic box with divisions to store screws, I believe. It works great.

Comment by David Stafford on December 8, 2020 at 5:34pm

The beauty of mail art is that it's largely defined by the artist and within each individual definition there are roads that lead to many other destinations.

Dare I call you Richard, M. Canard? You seem very involved in canards as well as mail art. I don't have 50 years to go, so given the progression of half-lives I'd better get cracking!
