GCN Circulars Request
This page allows people to sign up for Circulars within GCN.
(Circulars are prose-style messages submitted by list-members
and are re-distributed to the "GCN Circulars" distribution list.)
There are 6 pieces of information needed to sign-up for the GCN Circulars:
a) Your full name: John Doe
b) Your institutional and/or project affiliation: NOAO
c) The email address you want to receive the Circulars: firstname.lastname@example.org
d) Your email account name you will be using to submit: jdoe
e) Your domain from which you will be submitting: sirus.noao.edu
f) Whether you want to receive (or not) to this entry -- 1 to receive, 0 not to; [select a button].
Optional Comments: Enter questions or additional information here.
Items d & e may seem like a duplication of item c. Item c can sometimes be different than from where you will be submitting.
Also, some institutions use email servers/forwarders that allow for a generic email address such that
email can be delivered to a person no matter how their true account name/machine moves or changes.
Items d and e are used in the validation process for circular submissions (checks the "From" line w/o the colon in the email header -- see Procedure Step #3).
You can have multiple entries in this Circulars vetting/receiving list.
Item f allows you to have submit-only entries (e.g. say a backup gmail.com account),
and there can also be more than one receive entry.
For more information on the GCN Circulars.
Items with a red asterisk are required fields.
1) Enter information about you.
2) Hit the "Send GCN Circulars request to GCN Admin" button (at bottom of page).
(This will send me an email (& CC you) with the information you entered, and I will add it to the GCN Circulars vetting list.)
3) Optional but encouraged: Send a 1-word test email to email@example.com so I can check for extra IT Security features in the From-line.
