The purpose of this Newsgroup is to exchange problems and
solutions concerning the use of Sybase iAnywhere's Mobile IM
To ensure that we all receive the greatest benefit from this
forum, we have a few guidelines concerning its use:
1. Don't hesitate to ask simple questions. People get a
sense of accomplishment when they can answer them.
2. Some people practice Cyberspace Triage:
There's too much to read so they make snap decisions about
what to skip.
These busy people are sometimes the ones you WANT to read
your questions, so govern yourself accordingly.
- Put separate questions in separate messages. Some people
skip messages with more than one question.
- Use meaningful Subject headers, not vague descriptions
like "Help!" or "Urgent!". Some people only read messages
with subjects that interest them, and meaningful subjects
also help folks who are browsing the newsgroups.
- Start each message with "How do I [do some specific task
or solve some specific problem]?". Some people skip messages
that don't start with a question. Put supporting information
AFTER the initial question.
- Be patient. If you don't get an answer in 48 hours, try
rewording your question and posting it again.
Keep this in mind: Very busy people in very busy newsgroups
sometimes don't read any messages that already have replies.
They figure the question's already been answered. If you
don't get a helpful reply within 48 hours, try posting it
- Don't reply to a question unless you're fairly sure you
know the answer--unless, of course, no one else has replied
for two days or more, then feel free to take a guess. But if
you immediately reply with a content-free message, you may
create a victim of Cyberspace Triage!
3. If you have sample code, don't edit it, just copy and
paste the real thing. When you edit or re-type code, two bad
things can happen:
(1) you might introduce new errors that will confuse the
(2) you might remove the real problem without knowing it.
However, everything you post to these newsgroups will be
available for the whole world to read, forever, so be
careful with secret stuff. Don't post customer support ID's,
passwords or even database server IP addresses.
4. If you are getting an error message, post the exact text
of the message.
5. Newsgroups and email work together:
- If you are really happy with an answer, send a "Thank You"
Please don't post "Thank You" messages in the newsgroup. The
same applies to personal messages: end them by email.
Exception: Sometimes it's OK to post a "Yes, it worked!"
reply in the newsgroup. It may be helpful to others,
especially if there was some doubt in the original reply:
"Try this, but I'm not sure if it will help."
- When posting a question in a newsgroup don't ask "Please
reply by email".
Other people may benefit from the reply, and the public
nature of newsgroups is one of their main benefits.
- Don't ask your original question by email either--same
6. Post plain text messages only! Don't include HTML tags or
strange MIME types... if you can't type it in Notepad, don't
post it. That's because many people read your messages in
ASCII text format and the other stuff gets in the way. Also,
please don't use signature files.
- Don't attach any documents or files: no EXE files, no Word
documents, no UUENCODED text. And don't open or execute any
attachments to other peoples' messages. Viruses and worms
7. Don't post the same question in more than one newsgroup
8. Never post advertisements in technical newsgroups. The
system operators reserve the right to remove all
9. Don't use profanity, obscenities or racist remarks.
10. Please use your real name, not an alias. If you want to
avoid having your email address added to spam lists, just
code it like bmilton__NOSPAM@i.com in the Free Agent
options. That way automated newsgroup crawlers will pick up
an invalid address but real human beings can still figure
out how to send you email.
11. When replying to a message, don't quote the entire
contents of the original message. Just include enough to let
the reader know what you're replying to. Put your reply
ahead of the quoted stuff. That way, people don't have to
scroll down to see new material.
12. Please be polite. Don't get carried away criticizing the
products, or other newsgroup members.
