I am a novice list operator (2 days old). The subject matter is multimedia
under OS/2. Due to very light traffic on this subject in various comp.os.os2
newsgroups, I felt a mailing list might be in order. But on the first day
of announcement, I got about 100 subscriptions. Subs are still trickling
in. Does this mean, I should have proposed a multimedia newsgroup creation
rather than launch a list?
I have about 10 postings today exploding to 1000+ mail messages. Feelings
are similar to Adam, who said to Eve, "Stand back, I don't know how big
this thing is going to get!". ;-)
Do the lists keep growing or do they reach an optimum level and tend to
stay at that level with additions canceling out sign-offs?
Bemused list owner.
