Community Forum Stuff

If you're interested in starting a Gregg Shorthand Study-Buddy Group and need lots of room for uploading your work, learning from spoilers (flashcards) and creating your own shorthand-written tests, register here first and then tell an administrator you need permissions to the Private, Study-Buddy Forum.
Prepare your classroom lesson layouts, upload your blackboard drills, display shorthand-written tests, assignments and links to dictation files. Get it all ready from a Teacher's private forum first! Register here first and then tell an administrator you wish permissions to a Teacher's Private Forum. Be sure to mention the Gregg version needed.
The newsletters will go out quarterly on the 15th of the month. If subscriptions increase substantially and donations are plenty, publications will become monthly. Newsletter mailings are performed 3 times each quarter; a mass mailing for "Subscribers," and 2 group mailings: one for the "Pilot Team" members and one for the "Translators."

Shorthand Moderators Needed

I hope you've had some contacts for Gregg translations since the time your contact names were first added to the "Translators" list from the website. If your email address changes, please let me know so I can help you in this way.
Pilot Team Members
I know you must feel I've forgotten you. Truly, I have not! Your purpose to test online lessons is very important. Trying to learn web-design, web-programming and webmastering seems like a never-ending project and unbelievably time consuming! For the older-of-mind (me), it's quite the challenging feat! I hope you will all continue to be patient. The free rooms must be available and finished first and there is still much to do.
Now that this newsletter is ready for distribution, I'll use the text-emails to keep you all informed more regularly ~ individually and/or as a group. Please ask me any questions you like. Be sure to update your email address should it change. Again, thank you for your patience.
If there's a category you don't see and you'd like one added, please use the "Contact" button to let us know. In future publications, announcements that are lengthy will get a separate webpage link (maybe from the "Shorthand Public Notice" forum). Short announcements will continue to be listed here.
