    I suggest the following additional NGs:

    Website issues
    Forum issues
    Wiki issues

    We get maybe two emails a year about website issues, so I doubt there's
    going to be much need or activity there.

    The general forum issues can be covered in the "Open Forum". I doubt
    that after the initial conversion there's apt to be enough traffic to
    warrant a separate forum; if there is I'll create one. (Though we're
    already getting complaints that there are too many forums.)

    Is this because I and many other prime support NG contributors have been too
    lazy to work on the Wiki? I suppose it is easy for someone to just copy
    support NG posts into "Tips and Tricks", which they often are, with a lot
    less effort than putting them into the Wiki...

    I just wish mine were.

    I did. It still required over 10 min for it to be reflected. How often does
    your "email client" for the emailed NGs scan your email server? It seems
    that it is set for 10 min repeat interval. I think you need to set it to be
    much faster, in the sparklist MGs 10 min sometimes results in several back
    and forth messages in a single thread.

    Interesting. It will certainly slow down posting rates by email. Not
    necessarily bad, gives us more time for reflection on what to write before
    putting pen to paper (or striking the keyboard). Is the cycle synchronized
    with the TOD clock (e.g., always when TOD is a multiple of 10 min), or is it
    based on mail client start time? If the former, we would know when to hurry
    and when to take our time.

    BTW, both Outlook Express and Thunderbird can be set to 1-min refresh
    period. What mail client do you use?

    The mail client is irrelevant; this is a web server process.
