REMINDER: the plan for closing down the JISCmail HUMOUR-RESEARCH list
Over recent months, there has been no sign of a volunteer to be an active
moderator for the HUMOUR-RESEARCH list. This means that it will have to become
inactive. The plan is to move it to "retained" status. This will mean that:
- No new subscribers will be accepted.
- No messages can be posted to the group.
- The existing archives will be kept online at their current location, with
the search facility as at present.
- Although there must still be a UK-based academic owner, the duties are
almost zero, owing to the above restrictions.
For active discussions and announcements, a new mailing list at Google groups
has been established. The plan is to *invite* all current subscribers to the
JISCmail list (as recorded on Monday March 21st 2016) to join this new group.
If you wish to be invited to the new group, no action is required at present;
simply respond to the invitation when you receive it.
If you do not wish to be invited to the new group:
unsubscribe from the JISCmail list before March 21st (see below)
decline/ignore the invitation to the new group when you receive it.
The plan is then to move the JISCmail list to "retained" status early in April.
I am currently the owner of the JISCmail list, and will continue in this
(hopefully minimal) role once the list is "retained". However, I would be very
happy to hand over if there is a volunteer to step into this position.

HOW TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM THIS LIST:

You *must* send this from the same email address as the one registered on this
list, as the JISC server extracts the address from the unsubscribe message in
order to know which account to alter.
