Guardian contributors

The Guardian email network

This is the homepage of the Guardian email network.

This is a discussion list for journalistic contributors to the Guardian
Group's outlets to discuss all work-related matters.

To apply to join the list, fill in the form below. Our apologies about the convoluted prose in the computer-generated bits of this page.

Links for list members

(The current archive is only available to the list members.)

As an experiment, we're providing list members with a list of other members' email addresses.
(The subscribers list is only available to the list members.)

Enter your address and password to visit the subscribers list:

The Guardian list stylesheet

The list stylesheet will evolve. To start with, on-topic messages include all those dealing with terms and conditions of work at or for Guardian Newspapers Ltd.

On this list we are unfailingly comradely and couth. The moderators' decision in all matters concerning the list is final.

Messages must not be contributed which:

  • are actionably defamatory, obscene, criminally blasphemous or just too complicated to legal;
  • contravene the NUJ's Code of Conduct;
  • have degenerated into "flame wars";
  • are over 2500 words long; or
  • attempt to include anything that's not plain text

The plain-text-only rule serves to keep the time taken to download list messages to a minimum. It also means that it is impossible (given the current state of technical knowledge and dastardly invention) for viruses to propagate through the list. The program that runs the list also takes all plausible steps to stop your email address being "harvested" by spam merchants.


Joining the Guardian network

Join ("subscribe to") Guardian by filling in the following form. You should only post messages to the list from the email address you give in the form. For the moment at least, list members will see the address you give on your messages.

You will be sent email requesting confirmation, to prevent others from gratuitously subscribing you. Once confirmation is received, your request will be held for approval by the list moderator. You will be notified of the moderator's decision by email. This is also a private list, which means that the list of members is not available to non-members.
