1. Australian Discussion List (ozscrabble)

The ozscrabble list was started on 31 May 2005 to replace the CASPA discussion list which was terminated after the company that provided the service that made the list possible was taken over.  It has been established primarily for the benefit of Scrabble players within Australia. The list is set up as a forum for discussion only and is not an official medium for raising issues with CASPA.

This mailing list has been set up to stimulate discussion and disseminate information about Scrabble, and anyone is invited to participate, whether or not they are involved in clubs, tournaments or interactive play. When you post or cc (copy) a message to ozscrabble@yahoogroups.com it goes to everybody on this list.

Subscribers to this mailing list will be the first to find out results of Scrabble tournaments all around the country (provided they are posted by a list subscriber). In addition, important postings from similar mailing lists in UK and North America will be copied to this list from time to time.

To subscribe to this list, send an email (no text necessary) to ozscrabble-subscribe@yahoogroups.com
To post a message to this list, address your email to ozscrabble@yahoogroups.com

There are a few protocols that list subscribers are asked to abide by. These are:

2. International Discussion List (World Scrabble)

There is also a World Scrabble discussion list which aims to promote international discussion of SOWPODS Scrabble play.
