Dealing with Inbox overload

When you work in a community of learners, you have a responsibility to contribute to the community. One of the tools we use on our wiki is the mail feature. The mail feature allows you to contact each other, ask general questions, and get help. With our community that will grow to nearly 400, the inbox can get a bit full and very time consuming. So what to do about it?
  1. Delete all mail messages with no subject line. Include a subject line on all of your mails.
  2. Delete all mail messages with unclear or vague subject lines. Make your subject lines meaningful.
  3. Don't respond to everything. Pick a few, then move on.
  4. Only add meaningful responses. If you can help someone, then do. Otherwise delete and move on to the next one.
  5. Comments about a specific page should be left in the discussion tab- be sure to subscribe to the necessary RSS feeds from the pages.
  6. Direct your mail to the appropriate group. Mailing to mwvsciencefair sends it to everyone.
