I agree with the general opinion so far that with out contact and event
annoucments there is little pont in having th BS on line...

therefor, it foloows the whether the release odes or does not it should,
the idea of check boxes for don't post me, and don't post announcment, is
simple and effective...

They're officers, if they want off the list let them, otherwise publish them...

you might post a notice in the BS and give them a month to tell you before
putting it back

Event Announcements, contact information, and a much of the othe stuff and
we can wheedle the chronicler into putting in...

I think havin this info inlline in an excellent resource, I've already used
it to tempt oldtimers back into the fold by letting them find out when
events were, I guess now I'll have to tell them i was wrong.. to bad, Just
because they let their m-ship lapse, does not me i would not like to get
them back in... yno...

to 'oh powerful chronicler dude'... the maps and stuff are great, but do you
think we could have the "semester at a glance" calader/index back in the
black star? if not on the back flap then on a facing page, I use(d) it all
the time a feel the lack of it sorely...
