Announcements
Date: Fri, 14 May 2010 09:41:59 -0500


>Greetings to all LINCS Discussion List Members,

>

>The moderators have been aware that, at certain times of the year,

>the

>announcements that come through the list overwhelm the other posts

>and

>become a burden to list members. Here's our suggestion for making

>announcements more accessible to those who want them and less of a

>burden to those who might not be interested:

>

>

>

>In the subject line of an announcement post, state that it is an

>announcement and then identify its subject.

>

>

>

>Examples: Announcement: new online course on Learning Disabilities to

>start May 29 or

>

> Announcement: Webcast on transitioning for ELL or

>

> Announcement: Job Posting or

>

> Announcement: COABE sessions and Pre-Conferences sponsored by

>LINCS

>

>

>

>

>Letting other list members know what the post is about helps them

>decide

>whether to open the post or delete it and also helps anyone who wants

>to

>consult the post again later find it among their other messages.

>

>

>

>Note that LINCS Discussion List Moderators cannot make these changes

>in

>messages that come into their lists for posting but can only approve

>or

>reject each message. We have decided to start sending posts that are

>announcements back to their authors for the modification of the

>subject

>line, if they do not come in using this suggestion.

>Thanks for your help and cooperation in making the lists more
