It occured to me that there are numerous people here that I would like to know better and exchange ideas and thoughts. The Fan Nation "FanMail" is just too slow. Almost everyone I know already has a Yahoo account and uses YIM, so why not use that resource to bridge the gap?
I created a profile specifically for Fan Nation and this group and will share it with all that join this group. If you are interested, you can share yours with us and create a Fan Nation contact list in your YIM account. I suggest creating a seperate Yahoo profile attached to your normal account that prefaces your FN name that everyone knows with "fn." For instance, I am using "fncoach" In this way, when you recieve a request to join your friends list, you will know that it is a Fan Nation member.
I will keep this Group closed to the public so that any information shared here is not available to others.
I am going to start by inviting the members of NMI and then we can discuss what process we will use to invite other members to the group. As you join, post your Yahoo name for others to add to their contacts.
Your thoughts and ideas are appreciated.
