Dear CU-SEEME-L members at large........

PROPOSAL #1:

I would like to propose that repling to list messages defaults to
replying directly to the sender instead of mailing list.

I've been noticing more and more, that 80 to 90% of messages coming
across the mailing list SHOULD OF BEEN sent to the people asking the
question, NOT THE LIST. If the person asking the question, would like to
create a summary and post it, that would be great.

PROPOSAL#2:

All new members of the mailing-list are sent a copy of the FAQ as soon
as they join. Including questions like 'I have a QuickCam and it doesn't
work!' or 'Does the QuickCam work with CU-SEEME?'. Blllaaaaahhhhh! *bonk*

PROPOSAL#3:

LISTPROC program has a the capiblity of acting as a file server......
You can store various files such as the current reflector list, FAQ (on
general, list of working video cards, windows, mac, etc) in seperate
files, and video conferencing Web page sites.... Commands like 'get
CU-SEEME-L reflectors' or 'get CU-SEEME-L FAQ.video-cards' are
relativly simple for most people. An update everyother week, on what
is available and how to access it.... should be a really good deterent
for mailing list noize.

Let's work together on keeping the bandwidth down on the mailing list.
(I don't know about you... but I'm getting swamped with messages. I've
received 5 more DURING THE TIME of writing this MESSAGE! *glup!* )

Just my thoughts being a long time member of the CU-SEEME community...
*shrug*
