Create an E-list: 5. Announce Your E-list
To create an e-list, start with our Create an E-list Overview article.
This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)
After all the steps in parts 1-4 of our guide have been completed, you should encourage people to join your new list. Announce its creation to those who might be interested in it, and give brief instructions on how to join. See our Help Your Members article for sample text.
Unless list membership is a requirement (for example, an official departmental list, or a list associated with a particular class), list administrators should not add anyone to the list who has not asked to be a member. It is generally considered bad manners to add people to a list unless they have requested that you do so.
