test list

Juliana Berland

Hello everyone. In fact, I received an invitation to join the list & wasn't sure what it was. I thought it was attached to some administrative database work I'm doing for JewishGen, so I accepted. It took me a while to realize that this was a sort of beta testing group. So I'd like to suggest that this be made clear to folks before (as part of the invitation mail) & perhaps also afterwards (in a follow-up email), as I assume I am not the only one who didn't know what I was joining!

As for the topics/hashtags/replies... I never go online to look at lists, I only see them in my email client (Firefox, Outlook, whatever). When I reply to messages, the original message is automatically quoted below my message (see for instance here, altho I did snip out some of the message from Dick). This is set in my email client settings. Out of the 7000+ folks in the general list, is there a way to know how many read online, or is this impossible?

this is not the JewishGen Discussion Group. It is a test list with only 100 or so subscribers.
