Hello all, Simply stated, stay on topic or do not stay on this list. If you cannot adhere to the rules below, you will be unsubscribed. **** Welcome to the Scan mailing list **** Scan is a forum for general discussion concerning the purchase and use of scanners. All makes and models may be discussed. Appropriate topics include but are not limited to: Hardware: Scanners, cables, interface cards. Software: Plug-Ins, image processing and enhancement. Color: Color reproduction, color corrections, calibration. Storage: Archiving, compression, file sizes. Images: Image quality, resolution, color space, file formats. Printing: Preparing files to print, types of printers. Before we get started, please take the time to read a few ground rules: 1. The subject of all posts should be related to scanning. Do not clog the list with tangential discussions, take them to private email. 2. Please DO NOT send attachments to Scan! They will bog down the mail server and make the admin unhappy. Let me repeat: **DO NOT SEND ATTACHMENTS TO THE LIST**. Many of you will have images to share. I suggest the following: Send a message to the list. Tell the list about your image and ask anyone who wants a copy to email you privately. Then you can email only that person the image, instead of the entire list. Alternatively you can place your image on a web page and post the URL to the list. 3. Please trim quoted text to a bare minumum. Everyone on the list recieves each message, no need to send it again. 4. Keep commercial postings and self-promotional advertising off the list. Scan may seek sponsorship in the future. If you are interested, please contact the list owner privately: email@example.com. 5. Expect a diverse collection of people on the list. Be patient and polite. Remember there is a person on the other end of your flame! 6. Anyone can join Scan. If they have internet email then they can join (see instrucions below). 7. All of the members can contribute! Typically most people on a list are "lurkers." The more participation we get the better we can benefit from the list. 8. No questions are too basic for this list. Many of the subscribers are experienced pros, but we are all newbies at some point. ======== Using Majordomo ========= Mailing lists have two addresses; One for discussion, the other for list management chores.
