Site Tip: Maintaining Your Contact Details - Updated: 12 June 2012

This article will provide you information on how you, as a team contact or a member as a team, can ensure you stay informed about league events. As much as possible, we've tried to make things self-controlled so that you don't need to involve us in updating mailing lists. If you have questions about the instructions included here, contact the site webmaster.

There are two main reasons for up-to-date contact information:

  1. team - communications directed at a specific team or set of teams
  2. general league-wide communication

Maintaining Team Contacts

Each team is required to have at least 2 and up to 3 team contacts listed for their team. These email addresses are available to view from the Contacts navigation item. You can select whether to send email to a specific team contact or all contacts for a team. The list of contacts for a team can be updated any existing team contact. So if you have changes in your team's information, one of the currently listed contacts simply needs to access the website. In the left-hand navigation area, under Team Actions they will have the option to update team contacts. The site will then present a form where the existing email addresses are shown and can then be changed.

If a team contact doesn't show any phone numbers in the Contact list, this means that the person has not registered a web account on the site using the listed email address. Upon registering, the phone numbers provided will be be shown in the Contact information.

To protect the personal information available on the Contacts page, you must have an account on the web site and login using it before the information will be visible.

Using Contacts To Send Email

When you are viewing Contacts for a team, either for one team or a division or even the whole league, there are a couple of quick ways to direct an email to a specific contact or a team's contacts.

To send an email to a specific address for a person, simply clink on the email address and a blank message should appear from your mail client with the selected address in the To list.

To send an email to all the contacts for a team, simply clink on the team name and a blank message should appear from your mail client with all the addressess for the chosen team's contacts in the To list. If your mail client complains about the comma (,) between the email addresses or thinks that the addresses are just one long address, you may need to tweak the settings in your mail client. For Microsoft Outlook, visit this reference site for the instructions on tweaking Outlook to work with Internet Standards.

Site Tip: Reporting Items Lost Or Found At Diamonds - Updated: 12 June 2012

If you find an item left behind at the diamonds or have left something behind yourself, we ask that you use either the Team Contacts or the general mailing list to send out a notice. If you know when the item was lost or found, please consult the league schedule and send your notice to the specific teams that could have been at the diamond. If you are unsure when the item might have been lost, sending an email to the general league mailing list is allowed but the message will be delayed as it must be reviewed by the list moderator before it actually gets out to the list membership.

To learn more about the Team Contacts or general Mailing list, review the tip on Maintaining Your Contact Details.

Effective 12 June 2012 anyone sending emails to the league executive about lost and found items will be referred to this tip. Everyone has the ability to contact the appropriate teams.
