Request for a Mailing List

If you wish to have a mailing list on the server (non-commercial) you need to fill in the following form and email to list-admin @ hivemind.net

--- Mailing List Application Form ---

If you'd like a new mailing list hosted on the hivemind network,
please provide the following information:

 + Listname: listname@hivemind.net

This is the name you'd like for the new list. This must be one
word, but can include hyphens. The posting address of your new
list, will be <listname@hivemind.net>.

Note: This assumes that you want to add your list to the hivemind.net
domain. This list hierarchy is the most commonly used and the one with
the least restrictions on new lists. If you think that another domain
would be more appropriate, please add "@domain.name" to the listname
above.

 + List-owner: email@address.net

This is the email address of the list owner. This person will be
responsible for managing and maintaining the list and controlling
list access. This can be more than one person.

 + Who can subscribe to the list?
 [x] Anyone
 [ ] Only approved addresses

This determines whether you have an open or closed list. Open lists
allow anyone to join without needing approval. Subscription requests
for closed lists are first sent to the list owner for approval. The
default setting is open.

 + Who can post to the list?
 [x] Anyone
 [ ] Only subscribers
 [ ] Only approved addresses

If you want your list to be a discussion list, then you should tick
"Anyone" or "Only subscribers". If your list is only intended for
announcements, then tick "Only approved addresses". 

 + Please include a list of approved addresses here:
 ______________________________
 ______________________________
 ______________________________

Restricting posts to "Only subscribers" means that the list-owner
will get more bounced messages -- anyone posting to the list from a
different address to their subscription address will have their
posts bounced. The default setting is "Anyone".

 + Description: 
 ______________________________
 ______________________________
 ______________________________

This description will be included in both the introductory message
(sent to all new subscribers) and the information message (sent to
anyone who asks for a description of the list). It should clearly
state the purpose or focus of the list.

 + I would like archives kept of this mailing list:
 [ ] Yes
 [ ] No

 + Please add me to:
 [ ] The hivemind's announcement mailing list

The announcement list is a used for system announcements. If you are
not on this list, you will not receive any down-time warnings. 

Once you have completed this form, send it to list-admin @ hivemind.net Any questions can be sent to the same address.
