Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: Mailing List FAQ


Hi NoOp, *

[...] that page is on
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Local_Mailing_Lists/ so even if
translated and cleaned up wouldn't suffice.

The place for such a FAQ should be on
http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/ and apply to all
locales. Suggestions:
<http://www.mozilla.org/about/forums/etiquette.html>
<http://www.ubuntu.com/support/community/mailinglists>
[Technical guidelines - in particular]
http://www.openoffice.org/ml_guidelines.html

Friedrich Strohmaier already asked for someone to translate the German wiki page on netiquette (now part of the German mailing list wiki page) to English in order to link from every mail to the list:
<http://go.mail-archive.com/da0-BS6BGJYuOt7LR964ojFN2H4=>

Unfortunately he didn't get any positive reply...

That said, here is a question; how can a common user be expected to
possibly find http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Local_Mailing_Lists/ to
begin with? I see no link on
http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/ do you?

It takes two clicks on links in the first two lines of the webpages:
1. Click on "Local/Regional" in the first line of the page.
2. Click on "refer to the local and regional mailing lists table on our wiki" in the second line of the page.

With a larger screen you might read this line already at the bottom of your visible screen, so you could reach the wiki page already with one click.

But in general you're right: An average user will hardly read the text and might miss the link.

Would you please send a better proposal to the website list?

Or if you could put your proposal in the SilverStripe CMS (request for write access on the website list) and let it approve by a SilverStripe admin, it's integration would take even less time.

Best regards

Bernhard
