List Guides

Most of the Guild's public lists are monitored by the List Guides. They are there to keep the lists on topic, teach people about netiquette, and assist the members in a multitude of ways. They are also there to enforce the rules, as detailed in the netiquette guide. All members are expected to know and abide by the rules.

You may reach the Guides for each list by sending e-mail to the hwg-[list]-help@hwg.org address, where [list] is the list name without the hwg- before it and the -help after it.

If you wish to reach the List Guide Manager, send e-mail to: hwg-lgmanager@hwg.org.
