There is also no need to introduce yourself, greet everybody and
"apologize" that you are a newbie. Better focus on your problem.

> answering questions.
> 1. Always state the version of Seaside/Scriptaculous you are using.
> Also state the platform (Squeak, VisualWorks, ...) you are on.
> 2. Provide a minimal file-out with your mail that shows your problem.
> It is really annoying and time-cosumung to have to copy and past code
> into Squeak, register the application, add missing code to make it
> work, etc. So the requirement is: a file-out that is minimal, that
> shows the problem and that registers itself as application.
> 3. Don't write private mails to Seaside developers, they all have
> other things to do as well. Write to the mailing-list, unless you have
> a consulting contract.
> In general this article is a really nice reference on how to ask
> questions in a mailing-list:
