Subject: Q&A - Future of Server

To: All readers of the List Server:

Allow me first of all to congratulate Shafat Qazi, the CAC Committee and 
those participants who contribute to the success of this web server.  
While the server has attracted many readers within California, others 
throughout the United States and some overseas readers have also give 
significant input to this server. 

This web server requires continuing improvement and maintenance. In 
order to assist your future board to make plans for continual growth and 
maintenance of the web server under volunteer effort, we seek your 
wisdom and comment on the following questions:

1. Do you visit the list server because of its contents?
Yes and the people who participate.
2. Do you sign up the list server because of the name
3. Do you like the idea of a change of name to ( which stand 
for SEA International)?
4. Will there be draw back if the name changes within the next 3 months?
No. Don't fix what's not broken.
5. Can you adopt to a change of name within the 3 months transition?
6. Can you volunteer to assist our CAC to maintain this server?
Some/little. But if a lot of people contribute a little...
7. If the server is run by an outside vendor other than our members, 
will you continue your support?
Probably not. If SEAOSC cannot get enough volunteer effort to take some
load off of Shafat, maybe you can hire an assistant (to be paid for by
advertising, of course).
8. Do current vendors participate because of the name or the 
popularity of the server?
I would suspect they participate due to the target market.
