Cross-Posting to Different Group Discussion Boards

As a member of multiple groups in MLA Commons, you may want to post something (like a call for papers) in multiple group discussions. If you simply copy and paste a post, however, it will be rejected in the second group. This is to prevent spam rather than to keep you from cross-posting. If the text of your posts is at all different, however, you’ll be fine. A good way to do this is to personalize a post for the forum in which it will appear by adding a line at the top, like “Dear members of Twentieth-Century French Literature, I thought you might be interested in this.”
