[% WRAPPER layout title = "Perl Mongers: Frequently Asked Questions" %]
-<p>Please send any suggestions or corrections to user_groups@pm.org</p>
-<h2>General Questions</h2>
-<h3>What is Perl Mongers?</h3>
-<p>Perl Mongers is a loose association of international Perl User Groups.
-Individual groups vary a great deal in the details of what they actually
-do, but in most cases they are groups of Perl users in a particular
-location who get together periodically to discuss Perl and related
-topics.</p>
-<p>Perl Mongers is also the name of the organisation that oversees and
-co-ordinates the local groups. It also provides internet services to
-these groups. Perl Mongers was originally set up as a not-for-profit
-organisation in the state of New York, but in July 2001 it joined with
-Yet Another Society.</p>
-<h3>Is there a Perl Mongers group in my area?</h3>
-<p>The list of currently established groups is [% link_to('/groups/', 'here') %]</p>
-<h3>How do I start a Perl Mongers group?</h3>
-<p>Simply find some Perl hackers in your area and ask them if they'd be
-interested in starting a group.</p>
-<p>Experience shows that having a mailing list and a web site help to
-drum up interest in your new group. Almost certainly you'll already
-have access to servers to set them up on, but if you need help with
-that, we will gladly supply both web space and a mailing list.</p>
-<p>The only other thing to do is to [% link_to('/start/', 'let us know') %] about your new group
-so that we can add you to the list of established groups.</p>
-<h3>Can you provide people to speak at our meetings?</h3>
-<p>Perl Mongers can't actually provide speakers for you. Who do, however,
-maintain a [% link_to('/invite/', 'list') %] of well-known people from the Perl
-community who have indicated that they are happy to speak to Perl
-Monger groups when they are passing through the area.</p>
-<h3>What support exists for group leaders?</h3>
-<p>All group leaders are automatically subscribed to the
-<a href="http://mail.pm.org/mailman/listinfo/pm_groups">pm_groups
-mailing list</a>. The #mongers channel on
-<a href="http://irc.perl.org/">irc.perl.org</a> exists for leaders to
-discuss anything related to running a group.</p>
-<h2>Internet Services</h2>
-<h3>What Internet services can Perl Mongers provide?</h3>
-<p>If your group does not have a local server that you can use to host
-a mailing list and a web site then we can host it for you on our server.
-If you want to host your mailing list and web site locally then we can
-provide a pm.org domain that points to your server.</p>
-<h3>Why does it sometimes take awhile to get Perl Mongers services set up
-for my group?</h3>
-<p>Perl Mongers is an all volunteer organization, and almost all of our system
-administrators have very demanding commitments outside of Perl Mongers. We
-do things as quickly as is reasonable considering all of our other
-commitments. Additionally, there's nothing stopping you from operating
-your group while you are waiting for your Perl Mongers services.</p>
-<h3>How do I set up my group's web site on the Perl Monger server?</h3>
-<p>See below.</p>
-<h3>How can I administer my mailing list </h3>
-<p>All lists are run using <code>mailman</code>. Users can access their <code>mailman</code>
-configuration at
-<a href="http://www.pm.org/mailman/listinfo/">http://www.pm.org/mailman/listinfo/</a><i>&gt;list name&lt;</i>. List admins
-can access the list administration page at
-<a href="http://www.pm.org/mailman/admin/">http://www.pm.org/mailman/admin/</a><i>&gt;list name&lt;</i>.</p>
-<h3>You use <code>mailman</code> on a Perl web site? Are you a secret Python
-programmer?</h3>
-<p><code>mailman</code> is better than <code>majordomo</code>. Deal with it.</p>
-<h2>The Perl Mongers logo</h2>
-<h3>Can I make my own camel logo?</h3>
-<p>The camel used in association with the Perl language is a trademark of
-O'Reilly &amp; Associates. Thus, you would have to ask them, although we can
-help you go through that process if you need to. Be warned that this can be
-a lengthy process and that only the most professionally designed logos are
-likely to pass muster with O'Reilly. You should seriously consider using the
-existing Perl Mongers logo which was chosen after almost a year of effort and
-many trips back to the ad agency.</p>
-<h3>Can I use the Perl Mongers logo?</h3>
-<p>Perl Mongers groups can use the logo that appears on this page on their own
-web page as long as they include the following text somewhere (able to be
-clearly seen) on the page:</p>
-<p>"The use of the camel image in association with the Perl language is a
-trademark of O'Reilly &amp; Associates, Inc. Used with permission."</p>
-<p>Use of the Perl Mongers logo in other media is evaluated on a case by case
-basis since Perl Mongers is legally liable for its misuse. Our license with
-O'Reilly &amp; Associates requires us to report misuse of the Camel logo with the
-Perl Mongers name. Help us not get in trouble.</p>
-<h3>Can I change the Perl Mongers logo's color, size, and so on?</h3>
-<p>You can only use the image as you find it. Additionally, you cannot
-incorporate it into a larger logo or make it look like it is part of a larger
-graphic. If you have other needs, we might be able to work something out. We
-will, however, be less willing to work out special situations if we have to
-ask you to remove an improperly used logo before you ask us. We are legally
-liable for misuse of the logo. </p>
-<h3>Who created the logo?</h3>
-<p>Smith &amp; Jones Advertising and Marketing developed the corporate image and
-handles all of Perl Mongers logo placement needs. The camel image is used
-with the permission of O'Reilly &amp; Associates.</p>

Basically you go to Start-&gt;My Network Places-&gt;Add a Network,

https://groups.pm.org/groups/yourgroup
