Subscribing

CCVillage is now on the Groups.io platform and the subscription process has changed - look for updated information here soon!

There are two ways to subscribe to the CCVillage mailing list: by email, or through the Yahoo Groups website.

Subscribing by Email (simpler)

Subscriptions to CCVillage can be managed completely through email messages to the proper addresses.  To subscribe, send a message from the email account you wish to subscribe to ccvillage-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.  Future posts will need to be sent from that account to be accepted.

Subscribing on the Yahoo Groups Website (more features)

Subscribing through the Yahoo Groups website allows you to edit and post formatted messages, read and search older messages, and lets you access the photo galleries and files that some users may upload.  It does require you to have (or create) a Yahoo account, which can be done using an email account on another service.
