Cindy, well, fair enough. Books do count, I think. Maybe loosely. You'd
have to ask Peter or Marissa or what ever list powers that be what the
technical guidelines are for this list. I think than that Bookshare-discuss is
more book-related than this one, but I could be wrong. In the case of favorite books,
authors, etc... I mean. Even so, off topic or not, I don't say get rid of
those threads altogether by any means. Sometimes they are really
interesting. And sometimes break up the monotony of volunteer talk. I just
think OT is a good general rule to follow if one is not sure. It's just a
quick easy solution as I see it. Perhaps I'm just being obsessive and
annoying however. And if everyone and their grandmother disagrees with me,
then I'll let it go. <smile>.
What is the topic supposed to be, Allison? (smile) Just technical questions? I did have the feeling that book discussions rather than "working" discussions were supposed to be on the bookshare-discuss but they aren't all the same people. I figure that anything to do with books; bookshare; technology problems; scanning and validating problems is o.k. here. I'd consider other things that we enjoy talking about, like the weather, people's moves and Christmas shopping lists, different city pronunciations, et al to be the off-topic subjects -- but that's just my opinion.
For those of you who haven't been here long, we have fun times and discussions about all kinds of things. It helps us to feel that we're all friends, I think. Sometimes we even get chastised or argue as family members do. Maybe we're more like a family than friends. smile

Ah yes, there's that OT I put in the subject line again, I definitely like this thread much better now. How bout you all? For those who don't know, OT means off topic. It's a part of list etiquette to put that in there.
