Good Folk of the NED -
First of all, let me give
a big THANK YOU to those who have been
contributing to the
Nor'Easter and those who have volunteered to help
things over the past few months.
Due to a combination of emails
gettting stuck in spam filters, getting
lost (and found, and
re-lost) amid the literally hundreds of emails I
get in my personal
email box, and/or accidental oversight, a number of
the previous issue never made it to print. Please
apologies for letting things fall through the cracks like
while certainly not intentional, I know that this has been a very
and disappointing experience for those affected.
To help reduce
(and hopefully eliminate) this problem going forward, the
submission procedures will be in effect immediately:
are to be sent /*only */to the
"email@example.com" email address,
and not to my personal
email account, nor as a reply to any of the
NED Yahoo groups. One
email address means only one spam filter to
scour if needed, and
only one email inbox presumably containing only
items germaine to
2. If you choose to use the
web form to submit articles, please also
send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org" to let us know
you did so, as the web form does not send any notification that
are new items posted.
3. Please send photos to be published to
that same email address.
Please don't use Picasa as the means to
submit photos for
publication, as it becomes very unclear as to which
photos there are
for publication and which are not.
photos must include info regarding who is in the photo, as
who took the photo. This will save on your being chased
for that info.
5. Every submission will be acknowledged with a
response, so that
you will know that it was received. If you do not
regarding your submission within a few days, feel free to
to inquire about it.
6. If a decision is ever made
to deliberately not publish a
particular article, the submitter will
be notified of that decision,
as well as the reason(s) that decision
That should hopefully cover things for now.
- Microsoft Word documents are preferred. Just the
article (text) can be in the 'body' of an email message.
suggest a Title or sub-heading.
Please do not underline any text.
remove or minimize formatting of text and margins. The raw text is
all we need!
not use fancy or special fonts and font
not use any WordArt or borders or lines.
not include (or embed) any image in the Word
document. Text only!
(photo/logo) should be submitted separately - NOT "in" a Word document.
Please identify the writer and the
office or position held within the District or Chapter.
Only ONE article per document file or email message.
NOT submit an article as a PDF file. Word docs work best, or an email
Question? Call or email me!
Image Submission Guidelines:
prints can be submitted - snail mail (USPS) to the editor. See the
editors address below.
camera picture images are preferred and ideal; that is, not
today's megapixel cameras, the native, or original JPG image file can be
quite large... and unnecessarily large for me to use and for you to
e-mail. In most cases, I will accept any size image.
NOT use a photo-editing program/manager to email or "Send To" the
Nor'easter. These programs tend to automatically resample (reduce) the
image size to a VERY low quality - usually suitable to view on-screen in
an email, but NOT suitable for the Nor'easter publication and printing.
general, a color photo of decent quality for the Nor'easter, for
printing, will be between 200 and 500 kilobytes (under 0.5 Mb = half a
megabyte). I'll accept anything larger.
mechanical photograph print can be scanned at 200 dpi, no more, color
please, and no larger than 5x7 and submitted via email to the editor.
JPG is the preferred format.
do not attempt to scan a print that was from an inkjet printer. Send
the original image file.
Very Important! PLEASE IDENTIFY: the photographer,
and, every person in the photo!! Captions would be cool, too!
Please be clear and organized about this!
Thank you for
your contribution, cooperation and support!
|Circulation / Distribution|
Currently, the Nor'easter is free to all members and friends of the NED. The Nor'easter is freely available to view and download from the NED web site as an Adobe PDF file. No membership login is required. The free Adobe Acrobat Reader program must be installed on your computer and is necessary to view or print the Nor'easter. Please see the Nor'easter page on the NED web site for easy access, download and installation of the current (v.8) free Adobe Acrobat Reader program.
We hereby request and encourage your participation and cooperation in assisting those members who are not able to access or use a computer. Those who are technologically challenged need your help.
Chapter Presidents and Secretaries, in association with Bulletin Editors and Marketing & PR VPs, are requested to coordinate the printing of copies of each Nor'easter in order to sufficiently cover distribution to these "unconnected" members.
For NED and Chapter members, families and friends, we ask that you consider printing a copy or two and making these printed copies a part of your Nor'easter archive... and your barbershop life!
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and assistance in this endeavor! Thank you!
