Hi WAI-IG Mailing List subscribers,

Here is a reminder that you can find information about the WAI IG mailing list at:
     http://www.w3.org/WAI/IG/#mailinglist

There you will find instructions such as:
* To unsubscribe from the list, send e-mail to w3c-wai-ig-request@w3.org with "unsubscribe" as the subject.
* To subscribe to the list, send e-mail to w3c-wai-ig-request@w3.org with "subscribe" as the subject.

And guidance on using the WAI Interest Group (IG) mailing list, such as:

* E-mail messages should contribute to a comfortable, constructive exchange of ideas to advance web accessibility. Before you write an e-mail, think about how it will come across to the hundreds of people around the world who are on the list.
- Be respectful. Be positive. Be open to different perspectives.
- Provide constructive information. Focus on developing solutions, rather than just complaining.
- Avoid personal attacks, naming calling, and such.
- Explain the issue clearly. Provide sufficient background information.

* Make sure e-mails are related web accessibility and are appropriate for the WAI IG list.
- If you have questions about whether or not a message is appropriate for the WAI IG list, contact Shawn.
- When your comments are not useful for the entire list, reply off-list  that is, reply directly to the sender and do not send the message to the list.
- No soliciting.

*Formatting messages:
- Use a Subject line that describes the topic well. If you change topics, change the Subject. This is usually handled as follows:
New Topic XYZ [was: Old Topic]
- Keep your reply comments near the top of a message, and only quote essential parts of a previous message at the top  so there are few quote markings for readers to wade through.
- If you use a vacation auto-responder, exclude responses to mail with w3c-wai-ig@w3.org in any header.

* Send any questions about the WAI IG mailing list to shawn@w3.org, not to the whole list.

Best regards,
~Shawn
