TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
As we've had a few questions lately about setting the digests option - and
regularly get unsubscribe requests sent to the whole group - I thought it
might be an idea to copy the winhelp-l practice of having the list server
commands circulated regularly (fortnightly? once a month?). What's the
general opinion? Eric, would it be a real nuisance for you to have to add
it in or could you set it up automatically, say if you ran it on the first
of the month?
I know it would be a pain for those of us who get the digest to page past it
or remove it each time it turns up, but it should eliminate a lot of
queries, so perhaps it's worth that one little aggravation to save us from
lots of little aggravations? :-)
Just a thought....
