Subject Time for an ooo-users FAQ? (was re: Great E-mail addendum)
Date Sun, 15 Jul 2012 20:08:04 GMT
I recall from old Usenet days that it is often very useful to have a stock FAQ message that
is posted from time to time (not more than monthly).  

In the case of ooo-users, I suspect having it on a web/wiki page would also be a good idea.
 That could be linked in the e-mail addendums/signatures for responses to new/unsubscribed

The business about how to subscribe and see responses to a non-subscriber request is something
that should have prominence in such a FAQ.

Are there other tidbits that should be combined into a list FAQ (apart from some gentle etiquette

Had not seen it because it's gray in the signature. Really nice!
I'll steal that too...

on the list and not sinking into requests for personal support.

 Send from the e-mail address that you want to receive mail from the list.  Carefully follow
the confirmation instructions in the reply that you will receive from ooo-users-help@

 There are also alternatives for viewing lists that do not require e-mail delivery."
