User’s mailing list

The list espressomd-users@nongnu.org (subscribe, archive) is intended for users of ESPResSo . Before writing to the list, please read the following:

  • You can not write mailings to the list unless you are subscribed!
  • For basic questions, please do not directly contact single developers, but always use the mailing list! In this way, you will usually get an answer quicker and by the right person.
  • Are you using the latest version of ESPResSo ?
  • Please do not post overly huge messages! If you want to put large files into the mailing, please put a link to an URL instead.
  • Please stay polite in your mailings. Be aware that we offer the software free of charge, and none of us is paid for developing the software. Everything is done on a voluntary basis.
  • We would appreciate if you first try to find an answer to your question in the available documentation before you write it to the list.
  • Replies to mailings on the list should also go to the mailing list (hit “reply to list/All” in your mailer). In this way, the mailings and their replies get archived and others can profit from them later on.
  • We also have the archive of the mails to the old developers’ mailing list (before 2006).
