Three Tips for Getting the Most from Your fs-discuss Subscription

Freelancing is a solitary business, and most fs-discuss members enjoy the sense of community they get from participating in lively, topical discussions. Every time a discussion topic gets really active, a few members are surprised by the increased number of messages. FS-discuss is a discussion list, and messages are a good thing.

If you disagree, read on -- here are three tips, plus a bonus power tip, for reducing mailbox clutter and making Freelance-Seattle.net work for you...

TIP #1: IF YOU WANT LESS MAIL, SWITCH TO THE DIGEST MODE.*

Prefer to lurk and listen? On Digest Mode you'll get all of the day's discussions bundled into one e-mail at the end of the day. (Sorry, we don't summarize the plots, like Soap Opera Digest.) You can still post messages, and any replies to your post will be bundled in that evening's digest.

To change any of the options mentioned here, please visit the self-service web site:

TIP #2: IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY MAIL, START A VACATION HOLD.

There's no time limit, and it doesn't require that you actually take a vacation, even though you probably deserve one! While on vacation hold, you can still curl up by your PC with the Archives and a hot toddy whenever you wish.

TIP #3: IF YOU ONLY WANT PROJECT POSTINGS, SUBSCRIBE TO FS-PROJECTS.

There are no discussions at all, only the project postings. Read about fs-projects and see if it's for you.

Remember to also unsubscribe from fs-discuss, if you want to switch lists completely. It's a two-step process.

BONUS POWER TIP: MIX AND MATCH LISTS TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS

Some members subscribe to both lists: fs-discuss in Digest Mode, and fs-projects, so they have access to the discussions, including the Archives, and get project postings immediately. Clever, eh?

* Digest Mode is no relation to Depeche Mode.
