I thought now would be a good time to post a few helpful hints to make
your participation on Rootsweb Mailing Lists a pleasant one.
These suggestions are not geared towards anyone one person so please
don't take it personally.
Some of you may already know about this so think of it as a refresher,
and Newbies please read carefully.
1.)Don't send TEST messages to a list that you have not received any
* First, check the LIST ARCHIVES to see if any mail has been posted to
*You can find the archives by going to http://lists.rootsweb.com/, find
your list, and at the bottom of the page you will see links to the archives.
*If you have missed out on list mail go to the PASSWORD CENTRAL
http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ Here you can enter your email
address and see what lists you are currently subscribed. It's possible
that your address may have bounced off. Password Central will also prove
information on how to post and unsubscribe from any mailing list.
*Also check the HELP Page http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ to see if any
announcements are available regarding server or ISP problems.
* Before reporting a technical problem to the help desk contact the list
admin. and let them know what your problem is. There is no point in
overwhelming the help staff if it is something a list admin. can help
* If the list doesn't have an admin. - why not consider becoming one?
Just a thought. :-)
Is today your birthday?
