Interacting with the SHOTIMES Mailing List

To submit an article to be redistributed on the list, send your e-mail message to SHOTIMES-L@american.edu. It will be distributed immediately if you are a list subscriber.

What to do if you have trouble with the mailing list

If you have a problem of any type with the list, please do not send messages to the list asking about it. The several hundred people on the list don't want to hear that you're not getting messages, you're changing addresses, you want to SUBSCRIBE or SIGNOFF, etc. 

If you have a problem with the list and can't resolve it by sending commands to listserv@american.edu (for example, a message with "CONFIRM SHOTIMES-L" in the body addressed to the listserv would let you know if you were subscribed or not, without ANY human intervention) then please send it to the list administrators (shotimes-l-request@american.edu). Flooding the list with requests for help does nothing but increase list traffic. 

If people are compaining about your messages on the list having extra garbage in them, read Fixing your mail software to work with shotimes-l.

American University 

has an archive online at the "home" of the mailing list.  The site has a wonderful search engine available that can be configured to find just about anything you want.
