Forums and Mailing Lists
Shadow-Announce Mailing List
The Announce list is for those people who wish to be informed via email of new releases of Shadow software including Shadow Plan, Shadow Desktop, and any other tools released for the Shadow suite. Some betas may be included here, if they are safe for public use, though generally betas are only announced in the Shadow-Discuss forum. Very low volume, since we do updates approximately every couple of months.
Shadow-Discuss Web/Email Forum
This forum is the preferred discussion group and is based on the wonderful Yahoo Groups system (so you will need to make a free Yahoo login). You can choose to receive this like a mailing list, or read and post via the webpage itself. If you have any questions or ideas to talk over with others, have feature requests, wish to search the archives for previous solutions or are on the prowl for beta releases, this is the place to hang out. We're all friends here, so come have a chat! If you wish to submit a posting to the forum without using the web interface, remember that the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: I've backed up the archives from Yahoogroups to our own server, in case Yahoogroups ever goes out of business. You can see the archives here!
Codejedi Message Board
If mailing lists or YahooGroups aren't your thing, we host our very own message board where you can ask questions, chat or hang out. We do suggest the shadow-discuss YahooGroup for most Shadow Plan discussions as it has a long history and lively group of users. This is mostly unmoderated and is a good place to discuss our freeware, but it is not a good place to discuss the Shadow Plan software.. instead use shadow-discuss (above) for that!
Shadow-Tips Forum (Mostly out of date)
This forum is for power users or non-power users who wish to become one. You can post and read the best suggestions, usage patterns, efficiency ideas here. Comments about features, bugs, or other chit chat will be removed by the moderator, as this forum is devoted to useful tips for all Shadow Plan users. (Though definitely put your comments and suggestions into Shadow-Discuss above!) It is a slow moving list as most discussion is in shadow-discuss (above), though there is some great content here. Much of it is out of date and applies only to older versions of the application.
You can post or view via the web or email. To post via email, just send to: email@example.com
Shadow-Test Mailing List
Only for people who wish to be involved in alpha and beta versions of the handheld software! These are the versions that *do have bugs*. Enter at your own risk, if you want the bleeding edge!
Shadow-Dt Mailing List
Only for people who wish to be involved in alpha and beta versions of the desktop software! These are the versions that *do have bugs*. Enter at your own risk, if you want the bleeding edge! This is where most of the alpha discussion is. Note the NDA -- when you sign up to this list, you're agreeing to some house rules!
Shadow-Developer Mailing List
Are you a developer? Do you wish to have your programs read and write to Shadow files on and off the Palm? Then this mailing list is for you. Be sure to check out the Developer website link.. This list isn't used much, but feel free to post. Using this list helps us keep a running archive of commentary, though most needed information is on our website.
