List Admin Tid Bits :-)
*** Please *DON'T* ask technical questions ON
Probably the only one who can help you is the list admin.
Remember that technical questions are best addressed OFF
list to the list admin (that's me) All rootsweb list admins
can be reached by writing to <listname>-
where you replace <listname> with the exact name of the
list you want.
If someone does post to the list please don't RESPOND on
the list. That only compounds the original mistake of
writing to the list. If you think you have an answer to a
technical question please write to the person privately
The most common problems that subscribers write about
Not getting list mail or not sure if your posts are getting
through to the list
Not getting your list mail? Not sure if your posts are
making it to the list? No sense writing to the list about
**FIRST**** visit the ROOTSWEB HELP DESK for notices
about Rootsweb problems.
There's no sense flooding the list with messages about
list problems (all that mail will end up being held til the
problem is solved, then it will all be posted to the
list!), or you personally not getting all your list mail.
Check FIRST to see if the problem is noted on the HelpDesk
***SECOND**** Check the list archives! Are current messages
there? You can find out if your messages made it, or if
others made it so you will know if the problem is at your
end or is wide-spread
Don't remember where the list archives are? Go to the page
for this list at
scroll down to ONTARIO LIST then click on the link for the
Rootsweb list page.
***THIRD**** If there's no notice on the Rootsweb HelpDesk
page, write to me, NOT the list, for help.
Please make your message brief, but clear, tell me what
list you're talking about (I'm an admin for almost 30, and
if you dont' tell me which one you're talking about, I
can't help you), tell me exactly what the problem is and
what you've done to try to solve it.
Forgot my email address? The easiest way to get it is to go
scroll down to "For questions about this list, contact the
list administrator at "
These List Admin notices are my only way of giving you a
heads up of important issues or reminders of the list
rules. So please take a few seconds to read them when I
