Charter of the accu-prog-questions Mailing List

The mailing list accu-prog-questions has been created to provide support for ACCU members seeking help with programming. This is a moderated list for ACCU members only, and is aimed at students and novice to intermediate programmers. Compressed archives of mailings will be made available at the end of each month in our ftp area.

For those seeking help with more advanced programming problems and for more general discussion, we have another list: accu-general which is unmoderated.

The moderator will ensure that mailings are clear and readable. Overlong signatures will be trimmed, and meaningful Subject: lines will be enforced. "Please do my homework" type requests will be rejected! Binaries and advertising are not permitted. No messages greater than 40Kb will be accepted. Messages should be word-wrapped under 80 characters and sent as plain text containing no HTML.

Rejected mailings will be returned with a short explanation of the problems, and suggestions for their correction. The moderator reserves the right to alter the article to correct errors in formatting or grammar, but will make no changes that alter the meaning of the original message without the consent of the original poster.

Moderator Policy Statement

We normally have a team of moderators who work in shifts to spread the workload, and provide as small a turnaround time as possible. Normally this will be less than 24 hours, but unforseen circumstances such as network outages, hardware failure, power cuts, floods, disasters etc.. may increase the time taken for your message to appear on the list.

The Moderator may edit messages to remove ASCII art, overlong signatures, provide meaningful Subject: lines, remove HTML formatting, or add comments that enhance the clarity of the message as they see fit. A moderator will not however make any changes to the message that alter it's original meaning without the consent of the original poster.

The moderator claims absolutely no responsibility for the accuracy, safety, legality, completeness or morality for the contents of, or links contained within any mailing that appears on the list.
