Re: [tdf-discuss] Top Posting... Can we have an LO Mailing List Guidelines Page?


Hi NoOp, *,

I appreciate Your initiative..

For those that continue to insist on top posting on the LO lists: please
consider bottom posting with interspersed replies.

Those who insist, won't consider. I think it's a good Idea to provide
those with kind of guidance or recommendation who don`t know better, and
want to express their respect to the attention the audience invests in
their request.

posting. However at the bottom of each mail on this list is a link to:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette
That page doesn't help much either,

You ore someone else are warmly invited to change this. I hacked it
together after nobody wanted to volunteer, when I setup that footer
entries. So doing the footer thing brought me more work which could have
been done from someone else with no special permissions and skills. It
*intionally* is a wiki site. ;o))

Eventually I hope that LO will actually include a link to general
posting guidelines on the
<http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/> page with complete
posting guidelines.

+1 on that

Even if the final consensus is to only top post...
at least will help with consistancy on this (users), and the other LO lists.

I think this is not a matter of conensus but more kind of
recommendation, how to save the readers effort to catch the message and
use the time saved to give useful comments. ;o))

Added Note: I'd originally sent this to the users list as IMO that is
where the guidelines are needed most.

definitly.

So there may be some cross posting in replies.

No "genuine" crossposting so at least consistent threads per mailing
list. The better lazy way :o))

Regarding the "learn to quote" and similar posting guidelines of that kind:
They are collected experience of efficient mail/newsgroup communication
over a long time - nothing more and nothing less.

Long stories could be told about this topic - I try to make it short:

As one reading a high number of mails a day and one having project
experience (since 2003 OOo membership included) enabling me to give
answers at many places, I mostly skip mails which show me the poster
doesn't worry about my time and effort reading his post. So I rise my
daily range about 50 mails, reading and responding the ones of those
writers which show respect to my effort.
