GCN LVC Circulars Request

This page allows people to sign up for the Private Phase LIGO/Virgo (LVC) Circulars within GCN.
Even if you are already receiving the regular GCN Circulars, you still need to fill out this page,
because this is a separate vetting/distribution list for the Private-phase LVC-related Circulars.
(Circulars are prose-style messages submitted by list-members
and are re-distributed to the "LVC Circulars" distribution list.)

There are 6 pieces of information needed to sign-up for the GCN LCV 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: jdoe@sirus.noao.edu or John.Doe.1@noao.edu
d) Your email account name you will be using to submit: jdoe
e) Your domain from which you will be submitting: noao.edu
f) Whether you want to receive (or not) to this entry -- 1 to receive, 0 not to; [select a button].

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.
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 LVC Circulars.

1)   Enter information about you in the box below. (Items with a red asterisk are required fields.)
2)   Hit the "Send LVC Circulars request to LVC (& GCN) Admin" button (at bottom of page).
      (This will send me an email (& CC you) with the information you entered.)
3)   How to and Where to become a member of the LVC LV-EM Forum.
      (LV-EM Forum membership is needed during the initial proprietary phase for LVC to approve your request).
      And when LVC approves your Forum request, I can then add you to the LVC Circulars vetting/distribution list.)

1) Name*: (Your name, as you want it to appear on outgoing Circulars)
Institution and/or Project Affiliation*: (As you want it to appear on outgoing Circulars)
Receive Address*: (E-mail address to receive Circulars)
Account Name*: (Email account name you will be using to submit)
Account Domain*: (Domain from which you will be submitting)
Receive*: To Receive & submit    Submit-only

NOTE: It is useful to also send a one-word email to scott@milkyway.gsfc.nasa.gov using the account that you just listed above,
so that I can check the acctname in the "From "-line in the email header (since those can sometimes be different
than the login acctname, e.g. you log in as jdoe, but the mail-agent program inserts John.Doe in the From-line
of the outgoing email header). This is important, because the Circulars processing program uses the acctname and domain
in the "From "-line for vetting purposes for any future circular submission you might make.
(The "From "-line without the colon is used, not the "From: "-line with the colon,
because the "From: "-line with the colon can be spoofed.)

3) If you are not a member of the LV-EM Forum
then click this link How to sign up for the LV-EM Forum.
(You need to be an LV-EM Forum member before LVC will approve your LVC Circulars request).
When your LV-EM Forum membership is approved, please send me a quick email, so I can proceed with the LVC Circulars sign-up.
