Okay, let's go to the next level of the game. This level is multi-user.

There is a (unwritten??) rule that says that
 the time of the other players is very valueable.

Several technical tools support that rule about costly user time.
One kind of tools are E-mail programms that allow threaded E-mail,
another kind is a bug tracking system. Both kinds make it possible to
the players of the game to read in a single thread or bugreport what is
The tools need human intervention to avoid clutter and/or redundant text.
Do this by replying under the text and removing text that has surely be
seen. ( Keep some text as context for your reply. )

The same message in other words:

- The report of something being broken is been seen.
- There is a sort of desire to help.
- Invest time in making good readable reports _and_ follow-ups.
