List and Operations Email Directory
While most of Artisan's Asylum uses our forums for member discussions, we do maintain a few active lists for announcements and reporting of tool breakage, etc.
Google Group Mailing Lists
All shops have a shop-users list, (or in some cases tool-operator lists), which you can subscribe to to get announcements related to that specific shop. These lists are run on Google Groups, and they are specifically one way for shop leads to disseminate information when they want to report downtime or any shop maintenance announcements. Some of these lists are opt-in, and you're welcome to join as a normal member. However, certain lists like 3dPrinter-Operators are both controlled by the shop leads for tested-out members only, and subscription to these lists is mandatory if you're an active user of the tools within them.
The public opt-in list is Discuss, found here. Though your messages will go through, membership requests must be reviewed by an admin, and are reviewed at least once a day.
The private list for members to discuss things amongst themselves is here, and like Discuss, membership requests are reviewed once per day. Requests for this list are also checked against the current registered members in Club Automation, so if you're signing up from a different email, let us know your name so we can confirm you're a member.
