Guidelines for the VMS-SIG List
This is a discussion list. Only subscribed members of the
list may post to the list.
Note: If your "From" address doesn't match your subscribed address,
you won't look like a subscriber to the LISTSERV software.
Please keep your postings relevant and useful.
Not everyone wants to see every step of a raging debate.
What is acceptable on this list?
List members tend to prefer the following:
Some would be interested in posting their desire to find employment,
but reactions to those postings have been mixed.
- Technical questions ("help needed") relating to the SIG's subject area
- Announcements relating to the SIG's subject area
- Success stories relating to the SIG's subject area
- Opinions relating to the SIG's subject area
- Employment opportunities available
HTML messages are allowed. But keep in mind that many
people dislike them. Consider a plain-text alternative.
Attachments are allowed. But keep in mind that many
people dislike them, especially if they're large.
Consider posting your attachment on some web site instead,
and providing the URL in your message.
Also be aware that large attachments are a problem for some people,
either because of download time or e-mail quotas.
Replies go to both the list and the sender by default.
Different e-mail clients handle "Reply-To" headers in different ways.
When you reply, please take a look at the destination of your reply.
You might intend to reply to the sender, but your message might wind
up going to the whole list.
