1.2) Are there any news group posting guidlines? (rec.music.makers.bagpipe)

Not specifically. However, some common sense etiquette can be applied
to reduce the blood pressure of your fellow piping enthusiasts:

- Give a few seconds of thought to the "Subject" line of your post. A
descriptive subject helps people to find messages on topics which interest
them. You might consider prefacing your "Subject" with a parenthesized
instrument identifier; [GHB] for Great Highland Bagpipe, [UP] for Uilleann
Pipe, [NSP] for Northumbrian Smallpipe, [ALL] for all, and so on.

- Be careful how you quote when you reply to a post. Or, to put it
more directly, try not to over-quote. It's really irritating to get a
116-line message when 115 lines are quoted from a previous message and
the only new line is the 116th which says: "Me, too".

- Reply directly when appropriate. If you want to respond to someone's
post and your response is of an individual, personal nature, then it may
be better to e-mail the person directly.

- Make sure you know how to use your news reader.
