Welcome to the Flasher List!

*This is a unofficial Flasher List FAQ*

~Please save this email for future reference~

Here are some helpful pointers to get you started using one of the most
valuable tools for developing with Macromedia's Flash� - this list!

*Be sure to explore the manual and/or some 'on-line resources' before
submitting a question.

When Posting:
*Be sure your subject contains relevant info about your question. A subject
that says 'Site Check' should contain the url. A subject 'Picture problems'
should say 'picture problems - red box', if that is the problem. Please
don't say stuff like 'Newbie Question' or 'Please Help' unless you
specifically mention the questions topic. This helps archiving the 100 or so
e-mails this list gets daily.
*When initiating/responding from digest mode, please be sure to follow the
above as well.
*Please trim your posts. When replying - remove the ad at the bottom and any
other irrelevant information.
*Please make sure your system clock/time zone is correctly set so people's
e-mail programs can chronologically display the posts.
*Please avoid posting off topic comments or questions; if you must, please
append the subject of your off topic email with [OT].
*Please keep your signature lines to a reasonable and respectful limit.
*Cross posting to other lists simultaneously with the same question or site
check etc. is usually a no-no.
*Please do not spam the list, send chain letters, or otherwise advertise
anything not Flash related - even 'accidentally'.
*No need to write to the list to thank people. Everyone knows you are
*Profanity? I think most would agree that it really has no place on this
list. Please refrain.
