The WebM project makes extensive use of email mailing lists and Internet Relay Chat. Get involved by subscribing and contributing! Improving video on the web is a diverse undertaking, and we want your help.
The WebM mailing lists can be found at the links below. There are searchable archives available, and you can subscribe through the web interface or by mailing one of the subscription addresses below.
Wiki Subscribing to one of the WebM mailing lists grants you write access to our wiki at wiki.webmproject.org, which may be used for any reasonable purpose related to WebM or VP8. Contact email@example.com with any access-related issues.
Anyone may post. Registration / group membership is not required.
Non-member posts may be held for moderation, to avoid polluting the archives with backscatter (e.g., auto-responder away messages). Registered posters will not be moderated, and can control how they receive messages from each list via their account settings (none, abridged, digest, all).
This list is for general discussion of WebM video.
This list is for developers who are working on the libvpx library itself, and doing research on the next generation codecs.
This list is for discussion of the WebP image format.
The WebM project doesn't have a written etiquette guide, but there are many examples available.
We aspire to some common rules:
Be kind to newcomers.
We prefer that replies be made inline and that you trim any text not relevant to your reply. However, this it not to be a point for flaming other users. It's okay to make a top-post reply to a top-post reply, but try not to mix inline replies and top-post replies in the same thread. If everyone is replying inline, you should too, and vice versa. For an explanation, see this common internet joke:
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text. Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing? I like to top-post. A: Top-posting. Q: What is the most confusing thing on usenet and in e-mail?
