Regarding Victoria's request #1: I'd much prefer not to have two rounds of requests for information. I use the auto-reply to ask for all the information I need.

This has been working spectacularly with Back in the bad old Yahoo days, there was a space for prospective members to enter information (prompted by Yahoo - group owners had no control over that). Many would-be members seem to have thought they had already given adequate information and didn't answer the auto-reply message asking for basic data such as their name, reason for wanting to join, etc.

So - with all respect for Victoria - I'm a vote for keeping the questions confined to the single member notice that my group automatically sends out. Anything more is apt to sow confusion, as my experience with Yahoo indicates.
