             IS THE STAMP TRADER LIST SOMETHING FOR YOU???              

The Stamp Trader List (STL) contains the names & e-mail addresses of                  
stamp collectors & dealers who wish to establish connections & trade
stamps with other people on the Internet.  In essence, it's an intro-
duction service with absolutely NO FEES OR CHARGES involved.  It's
up to you to get in touch with someone who appears to have similar
collecting or trading interests.

The present STL is in seven parts.  Part I will list all of the new
entries, as well as deletions, corrections & changes in addresses.

The signon or login portion of e-mail addresses is in numerical &
alphabetical order & determines the whereabouts of STL subscribers
on the list.                

The STL is now scheduled to be updated & posted to the r.c.s news-  
group, no less than three times a month, on/or about the 1st, 10th &    
20th. All questions, comments & suggestions will be welcomed by me.  
I will be prompt & responsive to all e-mail.  In fact, if you don't
hear from me within 72 hours, there's an odds on probablility that I
didn't get your e-mail.  

For newcomers, it will be appreciated very much if you will use a format
similar to those that appear on the most recent update of the list that
was posted to the r.c.s. newsgroup or that you found at one of the WWW,
FTP sites, or the STAMPS listserver that make the STL available to us.

I don't know if there's any such thing as a typical entry or listing, but
here's a current example:
************************************************NEW ENTRY****************                        

Offer:   Used USA & worldwide                <Gainesville, Florida, USA>                      
Want:    Mint USA & used worldwide
Note:    Also want to buy MNH USA singles (many needed). I have 10,000+
         postcards, old & new, that I will trade for stamps.
*************************************************************************                        
It's highly recommended that you provide as much info of a general
nature as you can.  Taking the time to have a WANT LIST & a HAVE LIST
available to e-mail or snail mail to other traders will greatly en-
hance your chances to become a popular & good trading partner.  Please
place a value on the time of others, as well as your own.  Your home-
town & state, or country will be of interest to many. If you are a
member of a philatelic society, include that info as well, as there
will always be those who would be much more willing to trade or do
business with those who are members of an organized philatelic group.

The STL WILL NOT post detailed Want Lists or Have Lists.  That's a
matter between the prospective trading partners.

You might not have anything available for trading purposes, but that
doesn't mean you can't list on the STL.  It will be helpful if you
will indicate that you are willing to BUY or SELL stamps.  Stamp deal-
ers are welcome to a listing, as long as they are willing to trade
with collectors.
                        ******************
         ****FULL NAMES ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL LISTINGS****
                        ******************
In today's highly mobile society, it's understood that there will be
frequent changes of address or changes of online providers and e-mail
addresses.  Please be thoughtful of your fellow traders, and provide
the STL with any change of e-mail address, or a decision not to par-
ticipate any longer as a trader, in a timely manner.

In the case of so many college students, there's the matter of a summer
vacation to be considered.  If this involves being totally cut off from
posting to the r.c.s newsgroup or your present e-mail address, please
let me know.  If you will have a different e-mail address during the
summer vacation, please let me know.  We don't have to delete your
listing if you plan to return to the same e-mail address in the fall.
Simply let me know what specific dates...such as June 15th to Sept. 5th
on which you'll be incommunicado

************************************************************************                            
We would all do well to remember that some of us can access the Internet
with little, or no cost.  On the other hand, there are many collectors
who pay handsomely to access the r.c.s newsgroup, especially those who
subscribe to the major online providers such as AOL, Compuserve, Genie
Prodigy, and a host of other commercial providers.
************************************************************************

If you have any questions about protocol or procedures, please don't
hesitate to send any questions you might have to me at:


        Snail mail address:  PO BOX 33067, Phoenix, AZ  85067

       Please "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
