To join the (Unofficial) Impreza World wide web Owners Club and the email list, please use the form below.
Once you have applied to join the list you will be sent a short message asking you some information which is required before being allowed onto the list. Do not bother even filling out the above form if you can not be bothered to send these details. Without them I will delete your request!
You will be asked to give the following :-
Please ensure that you do respond and your email address is valid as I have been contacted on a number of occasions by people who's email address bounces, does not exist or in one other case was being used by someone else! Also ensure that your email address matches the one you have entered above because I have to match the subscription requests with the detail replies.
Once accepted you will be mailed the charter and will be live on the list.
There are several list modes available which are set by you during registration:-
During the subscription process you will be able to choose and switch modes by a web form. Once subscribed you will then have access to archived digests from the past. This could be another way to join the list, by browsing the archives only with your mode set to no mail, but personally the fun of membership is the interacting and discussions as they happen. Finally to leave the group you return to the same URL to unsubscribe :-(
Please note as mentioned above, there is a charter to the list which is a guideline on acceptable posts and this will be mailed to you when you are accepted.
I personally prefer the "as it happens" list because following of threads is made easier and replying to a particular message is again easier.
