Any beauty professional can subscribe to the mailing list and participate, however, all our lists are Sponsored lists. Only companies who sponsor the list are permitted to post to the mailing lists as 'The Company'. This is standard practice on the Internet.
Advertising is not allowed on the net but for two exceptions, one being a WEB page, the other a mailing list. An Internet mailing list is owned by the person who started it and therefor (s)he may set the rules of allowing advertisements or not. Since running the list costs much time and money, it was decided that sponsorship from the industry would make the list more feasible. If your company would be interested in sponsoring the list, we would be happy to send over the information!
Typical topics for discussion would be:
Ideas for monthly specials in the salon
Favorable - unfavorable comments concerning nail products
Allergic reactions to nail and nail related products
Favorable - unfavorable comments concerning hair products
Allergic reactions to hair and hair related products
Ideas for monthly specials in the salon
Salon Managements Software
Attachments - Do not post to the group with attachments,
no matter if it is an image, a background, stationary, or the vCard that
Netscape uses (VFC file).
Quick list of rules/Guidelines:
- Please do not promote your product on the list unless you are a sponsor. If your company would be interested in sponsoring the list, we would be happy to send over the information!
- Make an executive decision as to whether this reply
you are typing should be sent publicly to the list or private. Often this is a
'gray matter' decision. When in doubt, send it privately to the original emailer,
not to the list. (anything addressed to @topica.com
WILL go to the list -- everyone on the list)
- Do not email "Yep I
agree" or "Ditto Me too" emails to the list, add a little blurb
in another email that you agree with that one.
- Read ALL your mail before you send
that reply off.. Use AOL's Flash Mail system or set your e-mail program not to
send emails immediately.
- Sign ALL you lists
emails like this:
Debbie, Wicked Wich Nails, Ronkonkoma, NY email@example.com
(NAME & EMAIL are required)
- Do not email virus
warnings, chain letters, jokes etc to the list. (ONLY Java-Time is Joke

owners job. If an error is made in emailing, the list owner will take care
- Quote in your replies. If your system does not allow

Mary asked why gels
are better than acrylics
- Delete all the unimportant lines, including the footer
at the bottom of every email that comes through the list.
- When a email says
reply private, make every effort to do so. This point is worth repeating:
the more "SENSITIVE" the material in your email, the more times you
BETTER look up at that TO box and see who's going to get it!
- Restrain yourself from answering EVERY
email that comes through!
- It is agreed by all that there are discount (low
price) and NSS or Non Standard Salons formally known as chop shops (no sanitation, improperly trained techs).
- On the list
there should never be references to a type of shop in the same email with any
mention of ethnic race. NEVER assume that because a particular race owns a shop
that they are using MMA, or poor sanitation or the techs are not trained
- Everyone is entitled to their opinions, likes and dislikes of
products. Name calling or saying that this product "sucks" will not be
tolerated. To say that you did not care for a product and state your
professional reasons if fine, degrading of people or product will not be
- Expression of emotion in the written word is a very fine
written with sarcastic humor, but read with a chip on one's shoulder, then the
humor is not read in the email as intended, feathers get ruffled and fights
start (flame wars), Please use emoticons where needed :)
- Flame wars will NOT be tolerated on the list.
