Dear SW List Members:
The SW List software is working well again.
I believe I know why it was not working well before. I am guessing
that an increased amount of spam hit all of the Lists that are
managed by software at Valencia Community College in Orlando,
Florida. There are five lists: SLLING, TeachASL, SignWriting List,
Terps List and another List from Canada...and all five experienced
glitches recently. It was terrible for all the technicians, including
the managers of the Lists, like myself and others.
I finally learned that if I keep my email on Plain Text (not Rich
Text), I can post photos and graphics to the SW List. But if you send
an email to the SW List that is BOTH Rich Text plus an attached
photo, the List software thinks it is spam, and it bounces to the
manager, namely me!
So SW List members...you all are welcome to post graphics and photos
once again, just be sure you are sending them attached to an email
that is Plain Text, not Rich Text. And only one photo or graphic per
message...more than one at a time is bounced back to me too...
Plain text is very simple...with no Bold or colored text. Most email
software has a setting like: Make Plain Text. or.... Make Rich Text....
You may be able to find it in your Preferences, or Properties...or
under the Menu called Text, or Format...
