Seems like it's high time to get the Jobs, Events and Plugs postings their own email list and make sure people know how to set their subjects lines so they got filtered properly. Having these things constantly pop into one's a mail client is getting really tedious.

Just my two cents.

I disagree with Andrei. I like having the announcements on this list even though many don't pertain to me. It makes me feel in touch with the IX community which is what I like about this list.

Well. the best solution would be to have the digest or subscriptions settings allow subscribers to choose which postings they want to track. But given that this list is volunteer, I expect that's more work than anyone would want to tackle. I know I wouldn't.

Anyways. I've tried to set up a filter in my mail program to handle this on my end, but because these types of message don't follow a standard subject tag, it's makes it near impossible to do consistently. I'd be happy to set up my own filters if people who post those things were somehow forced to follow a standard subject tag.

A Standard opening tag for Job, Event and Plug would be great.

might i suggest [job] [event] and [plug] ?

and Andrei:
you know you're eyeing that new gig in Hotlanta. It's near the airport!

    The new digest omits jobs, events and plugs (actually, any thread with fewer than five posts). The upshot is that subscribers get much, much less e-mail, and the messages tend to be actual discussions.

    Members can switch over to the digest on their profile page: http://www.ixda.org/profile.php

    It's also possible to subscribe via RSS to selected topics: patterns, methods, tools, research, business, events, eduation, announcements or jobs. These feeds are curated by IxDA volunteers. http://www.ixda.org/rss.php
