New Lists?

Sat Jun 8 15:44:18 PDT 2002

As for mail volume, let me add another email to the volume on the topic!

I, too, was surprised at the volume...but, using Outlook, like many others,
I quickly set up a folder and "rule" to automatically move emails from this
list to the folder, and out of my inbox.  That way they don't clog up my
inbox, and I can  go through all of the emails at my leisure when I need a
Dragaera fix.  This is working great for me, just my two cents....thanks,

Jeff Harrison

Adding additional lists is easy technically at this end.

The RPG discussion, if it continues and gets big, seems a good
candidate (or moving to their own web board if preferred).  The "read
this together" discussion also makes good sense -- having a private
"room" to have that discussion in seems like a net win.  Mentioning on
the main list each time you're about to start something would be
sensible too, if split off.

A web board is unlikely; we discussed that quite a bit before
launching this list.  There *is* a nice threaded indexed archive of
this mailing list on the web, though.  Adding a mechanism to post to
the mailing list from that might happen (but is *not* technically
simple; I'd have to delve into the ezmlm-cgi code pretty seriously).
