What does HATT stand for?

Help Authoring Tools and Techniques. HATT is a list for online help authors to share information about online help tools and techniques.

What are my options for subscribing?

You can subscribe via email and get messages individually or as a digest.

You can also subscribe via the Web and get access to all the features of the group, which include messages, an area for posting files, important links, a calendar, and contact list. To join HATT or to unsubscribe via the Web, go to the HATT home page (http://www.egroups.com/group/HATT) and click Subscribe in the main menu.

How do I sign up without giving out private information?

The normal signup via the Web requires you to provide your name, birthday, gender, and zip code. If you do not wish to give out this information, you can provide bogus information or do the following.

  1. Sign up via email by sending a blank message to HATT-subscribe@egroups.com.
  2. Go to the HATT home page (http://www.egroups.com/group/HATT) and request a password through the "forgot my password" feature. egroups sends a reauthorization number which allows you to enter a new password.

What are my options for reading messages?

You can have HATT "Send email messages to...", "Send a daily digest of messages (many e-mails in one message) to...", or "Don't send me email, I'll read the messages at the Web site".

To change your settings on the web, go to the HATT home page (http://www.egroups.com/group/HATT) and click Modify under the Membership heading in the upper right corner.

Or you can change your settings via email:

How do I post a message to HATT via email?

Send your message to HATT@egroups.com

How do I contact a moderator on HATT via email?

Send your message to HATT-owner@egroups.com

Why am I getting more than one digest per day?

eGroups says: "Messages are delivered in batches of 25 or daily, whichever comes sooner. This is the best option if you want to receive fewer mail messages and don't need up-to-the minute posts in your inbox. Email attachments are not available in digests."
