Seattle Community Network User Advisories

April 26, 2017:

The web server crashed after a system upgrade on the 22nd. We are back up now, and working on a number of minor issues.

We have implemented new policies on our e-mail server that eliminate about 98% of Unsolicited Bulk E-mail (UBE, a.ka. spam). A significant amount still gets through; we are work on reducing that. In addition to stricter requirements we are also more aggressively blocking blocks of IP addresses. If mail you send to SCN is being rejected (and you are not a spammer!) please contact the Help Desk ( for assistance.

Note that we have also begun what will be an extensive edit of the SCN web site content; you may notice changes over the coming months. This edit will include updating or removing obsolete information, links and link trees, buttons, etc. If there is some particular piece of content on which you depend, please send us an email.

The SCN system is also undergoing much-needed maintenance, requiring significant time from our volunteers. Some of you may be experiencing longer-than-usual response times when requesting account registration changes and using other SCN services.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may encounter and appreciate your patience.

The SCN System Team

Seattle Community Network (SCN) is a free public-access computer network. We have been privileged to partner with the Seattle Public Library from our beginnings in 1994. SCN was originally a project of the Seattle Chapter of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility (CPSR).

In 1995 the Seattle Community Network Association (SCNA) was incorporated as a separate non-profit organization.
SCN is an all-volunteer organization. Our primary source of funds are the contributions made by our donors. SCNA is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you'd like to volunteer with SCN check out our Volunteers page.

Sites to See

Some SCN sites that we would like to feature and share with you, our visitors and members.

Hiking Cedar Butte

Located near North Bend, this site provides some interesting information for all you hikers now that the weather has turned nice.

Floating Bridge Press

Floating Bridge Press is a 501(c)(3) non-profit literary arts organization, founded in 1994. Our mission is to recognize and promote the work of Washington State poets, through an annual Poetry Chapbook Award; the production of archival-quality chapbooks, anthologies, and broadsides; as well as community poetry readings.

We hope you enjoy your visit and welcome any suggestions as to other SCN sites you would like to see featured.
