• FresnoRaves is *not* a paging service, nor is it a "chat line" for one-sentence messages. If you want to just "chat", check out VRave. FresnoRaves is also not a group therapy support line - but thoughtful posts about how you have been affected by rave culture are appropriate, because after all raving is a very personal experience.
  • The occasional humorous post or not-entirely-rave-related topic is fine, but please prefix it with the letters "NRR" in the subject line (as in, "Non-Rave-Related") so people who don't want to see that can filter it out.
  • Promoting your party, your DJ gig, your new mixtape, etc. are all fine, but please prefix the subject line with the letters "BSP", as in "Blatant Self Promo.
  • Offering things for sale are fine, so long as they are marginally rave-related, such as musical instruments, sound systems, lighting gear, etc. This time, prefix it with the letters "4SALE.
  • Normal etiquette is to wait around 2 weeks or more before you start posting anything; that ensures that you don't tread on old ground and that you have a reasonably good idea of the mindset of the list.
