subject: [ig-news] admin stuff: digest now open, content survey part 2, more


hi folks,


i've just opened up the digest version of this list for subscribers.
if you want to switch from bounce to digest, send these commands in
the body of an email message to majordomo@smoe.org:


        unsubscribe ig-news <your email address>
        subscribe ig-news-digest <your email address>


(replace "<your email address>" with your real email address, minus
the quotes and brackets.)


also, just a reminder to students going home for the summer - don't
forget to unsubscribe from this list!  issue the unsubscribe command
shown above to do so.


let me know if you need a hand, at owner-ig-news@smoe.org or
sherlyn@fl.net.au...


also, the list welcome message has been changed, by quite a bit i
think.  i'm going to forward it on in a minute - this will replace
the previous version of the welcome message that you should have
saved.


one final thing - i'd like some feedback as to how you think i'm
doing with the content of the list!  right after this list was
started we took a vote and decided that as well as ig news, boot tree
announcements, tour information such as onsale dates, and concise,
coherent concert reviews would be ok for the list.  do you think i'm
sticking to this?  am i letting too much through, or not enough?  do
you want to propose any other changes?  let me know what you think,
at owner-ig-news@smoe.org or sherlyn@fl.net.au.


okay, that's all.  thanks everyone, :)
sherlyn

welcome to ig-news, the indigo girls news-only mailing list!


please read and save this message for future reference.

5. thanks and acknowledgements

1. about ig-news
================
[note: in this document, the phrase "indigo girls mailing list"
refers to the indigo girls mailing list at netspace.org.  see section
4 for more information.]


ig-news is a 100% moderated list for distribution of information
regarding the indigo girls.  information sent to the list will be
mainly gathered from sources such as the indigo girls mailing list,
alt.music.indigo-girls and the world wide web.  please note that
nothing will be posted to this list that is not also forwarded to the
indigo girls mailing list.  in essence, this list is intended to be a
chatter-free version of the regular indigo girls list.  if you are
interested in participating in discussion about the indigo girls and
their music, you should consider subscribing to the indigo girls
mailing list at netspace.org instead (see section 4 for more
information).


this list is moderated.  this means that all list messages must first
be approved by the list moderator before being released for
distribution to the list.  except in exceptional circumstances, only
indigo girls-related information such as tour dates, news articles,
boot tree information, selected concert reviews etc will be accepted
for distribution.  subscriber contributions are welcome, but please
be aware that approval (and non-approval) of messages is entirely at
the list moderator's discretion.  this list is owned and moderated by
sherlyn koo (sherlyn@fl.net.au).


this list is available in both bounce and digest format.  "bounce"
means that individual messages will be sent to you as soon as the
list server receives them.  "digest" means that the list server will
compile all list messages and send them to you as one long message,
either every 24 hours or when a certain size quota is reached,
whichever happens first.  see section 3 for instructions for
switching between bounce and digest formats.


ig-news is run using majordomo.  please note that some majordomo
commands may be subtly different from the listserv commands used at
netspace.org.  see section 2 for a list of the relevant email
addresses, and section 3 for a list of common majordomo commands.


please note that this mailing list is completely unofficial and is in
no way connected to indigo girls or their management.  it is intended
only as an information resource for fans.


if you have any administrative problems or questions about this list
and/or its policies, please contact the list owner/moderator at
owner-ig-news@smoe.org.

2. email addresses to remember
==============================
there are three main email addresses to be aware of:


1) ig-news@smoe.org - this is the list address.  any mail sent here
        will, subject to approval, be forwarded to all members of the
        mailing list.
2) majordomo@smoe.org - all majordomo commands should be sent here.
3) owner-metal-drums@smoe.org - all mail sent here will automatically
        be forwarded to the list owner/moderator.


majordomo commands can also be sent to ig-news-request@smoe.org and
ig-news-digest-request@smoe.org provided you know the correct command
syntax.

3. common majordomo commands
============================
this is a list of a few of the most commonly used majordomo commands.
these commands should be sent, in the body of an email message, to
majordomo@smoe.org.  where indicated, replace "<your email address>"
with your actual email address.

2) to leave the bounce version of the list:

4. about the indigo girls mailing list at netspace.org
======================================================
as previously stated, this mailing list is intended to be a low
volume, chatter-free version of the indigo girls mailing list at
netspace.org.  there is no need to subscribe to both lists; all mail
sent to ig-news will be also posted to the list at netspace.org.


also please note that in some cases, mail sent to ig-news will not be
approved for distribution on ig-news but will instead be forwarded by
the list owner to the list at netspace.org.  this may occur in cases
when you are seeking information but not posting any news.  if your
message falls into this category a copy will be cced to you when it
is forwarded to the list at netspace.org.


to find out more about the indigo girls mailing list at netspace, its
policies and how to subscribe, see the indigo girls mailing list faq
which can be obtained:
    - on the www at http://www.fl.net.au/~sherlyn/ig
    - via anonymous ftp from space.mit.edu, in directory pub/cmb/ig
    - via email from sherlyn@fl.net.au if you do not have www or ftp
        access


the indigo girls faq is also recommended reading for anyone with
questions about amy, emily or their music.  it is also available by
the above methods.
