Hello, Techniques Members: ;-)

The lists are up and running.... just not as much activity as usual.  If 
you ever have questions about any of the list's status, we're here to help 
you out by emailing the List Guides off-list (email addresses in this FAQ) 
for current status.

Here is your monthly list FAQ with information about the Techniques list.
This list is targeted toward those of you who are of intermediate to 
advanced skill level. Its charter incorporates the issues of both "how to 
do it" and "why/when to do it" as they relate to website design and creation.

Other topic specific lists are available as well:

Keep a copy of this FAQ your inbox for quick access to this information.

Have a great weekend!

Each list has a different feel and different general community rules.
Please spend some time listening in ("lurking") before posting in
order to get a feel for the way in which conversations take place.

You will also want to be sure to review the following /before/ you post:

The Actionable Rules:

Netiquette Guidelines:

Once subscribed, to send a message to the hwg-techniques list, send
an email to:



First troubleshoot the following items:

*Did you subscribe to the Techniques List and receive confirmation
the subscription was processed?

*Are you sending your post to: <hwg-techniques(at)>?

*Are you sending using the email address you originally used to
subscribe to the list?

*Does the email you subscribed with have an autoresponder
attached to it or include HTML formatting or attachments?

It is not uncommon for members to change email addresses and
inadvertently forget that the "new" address was not the one they used
when they subscribed to the list.  The new address would not be
recognized by the mail server and therefore your messages would not
be forwarded to the list.

Also, autoresponders and ISP problems that create bounced
messages may cause the list's filters to automatically unsubscribe you
from the list.  If after checking all the above possibilities out you still 
experiencing difficulties, email the List Guides for assistance.


A "digest" version of the list is available. By subscribing to the digest
version of the hwg-techniques mailing list, you receive a group of posts
in one E-Mail message. That way, as an example, instead of getting
20 messages a day from the list, you would get 1 or 2 which contain
all of the posts from that day. You can still participate in the
hwg-techniques list like a regular subscriber, you just receive your
messages in a more compact manner.

For information about subscribing to the Digest version, please see:

For information about UNsubscribing to the Digest version, please

The List Guide Program was created to assist members on the
IWA-HWG Mailing Lists to get the most from the lists. We perform
the task of helping the lists get and keep quality, valuable, valid
content. In addition, List Guides provide assistance to all who
request it and help enforce the IWA-HWG policies for the mailing
lists.   To contact the Techniques List Guides email:


Information on the List Guide program can be found at:


We do not moderate the lists.  We are here, always in the background,
to assist you with your questions and concerns.  We do contact
members, via private email, when we are concerned about a post that
may have infringed on the Actionable Rules located at:


Please understand we will always err on the side off caution when it
comes to these 10 rules and appreciate your understanding in this
regard.  We do not _generally_  enforce Netiquette Guidelines.

If you have a problem with what someone else has posted to the list,
then you may freely respond to them in private email.  List Guides will
address any violations of the IWA-HWG's Mailing List's Actionable
Rules via private email with the member(s) involved.  Refusal to abide
by the Actionable rules can result in a member being removed from the
mailing list permanently or for a period of time depending on the nature
of the disturbance the member has caused.

The List Guide program is authorized and endorsed by the IWA-HTML
Writers Guild.  If you have a problem with an action taken by a List
Guide you may address that with their manager(s) by sending mail to
hwg-lgmanager(at) .

If you have questions about the List Rules or a List Guide's actions, please
do not post them to the list. You can email your thoughts and comments
at any time to the List Guide Manager - off-list - for comment.  In our 
to minimize our volunteers spam levels, the LGM direct email address has
been changed to: hwg-lgmanager(at) and the former address has
been retired.  Please make note of it or know that it is posted publicly on
the HWG's site.  Thank you for your assistance and cooperation in keeping
the lists on topic and of value for all members.


The HWG offers a plethora of list selections for members to choose
from depending on their areas of interest.  For an overview of all the
general and topic specific lists offered by the HWG please visit:
