  Subscription t  
 

The European EMTP-ATP Users Group Association (EEUG) operates a free electronic bulletin board using address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at the University of Siegen, Germany. This LISTSERV mailing list is for ATP-related announcements, questions, answers, etc.

The ATP mailing list is not open to public. Only licensed ATP users are entitled to subscribe to the list. Subscription is performed manually by authorized ATP-EMTP user groups after verification of the ATP licenses of its applicants. At present transition stage, the subscription list is being reviewed by the user groups. All Canadian/American ATP users, who are interested in the new subscription or continuation of their subscription, are asked to fill in WWW ATP licensing form on-line whether or not they have been licensed in the past. Application for a new ATP license and renewal of subscription are necessary, if the licensed user moves to another organization or if the E-mail address changes.

EEUG has contracted Dr Klaus Teichmann from University of Siegen, Germany, to maintain the mailing list as list master. All questions and problems related to subcription should be directed to him by E-mail (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). As ever, authorized user groups are responsible to approve ATP licensing agreements and forward subscription request to This email address is being protected from spambots.

  Operation Rules t
 

After your name has been added to the list, you can post messages. To do this, you simply send Email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Your message then will be submitted to moderators, who decide whether or not to accept it. You can respond to a posting you have read by using the "reply" function of your mail program (which is sometimes called "answer", "respond" or something similar).

The task of moderators is maintenance of the quality of communication and discussion.

The language of communication is English. Messages written in any other language are not accepted. Since English is not the native language of all ATP-EMTP users, please use simple wording and avoid local idioms and slang.

Discussions may often result in disagreements. Rebuttals to another person's opinions or beliefs should always be made in a rational, logical and mature manner. Subscribers should refrain from abusive or derogatory language.

The author of each submission must be clearly identified. This includes name, organizational affiliation, and geographical location. The message must be supported by an appropriate subject that is entered in the mail header Subj:

Only plain text messages are allowed. Encoded messages, or messages in HTML format, will be rejected by the moderators.

Advertisements and announcements not related to ATP-EMTP should be avoided. Conferences and courses on electromagnetic transients, announcements of job openings either neutral to any simulation program or closely related to ATP-EMTP, may be announced if approved by moderators.

Attachments, especially encoded files, are not allowed. They can be forwarded later to interested persons by private E-mail. Auto-attached advertisements and legal disclaimers included in the message will be removed by moderators. Any attachment including HTML format will be deleted automatically by the system.

Any subscriber who sends a message to the mailing list gives up his right to confidentiality. This is regardless of the message's possible declaration to the contrary.

Requests for books and papers that are available publicly should not be made, in general.

Frequently posted basic questions (e.g., where to find program files and documentation, or simple calls for help), generally will be handled privately by moderators.

Subscribers of the mailing list fulfill the ATP license requirements. Specifically, they are forbidden to disclose to non-licensed persons ATP information that is received from the mail service.

Removal from the list is a possible consequence of violation of any of the preceding operation rules.

In order to ensure valid subscription addresses, and to handle bounces, subscribers are probed at subscription renewal times using an automatically distributed mail template. No response is needed from the subscriber. If the probe bounces, the mail server will inform the subscriber by a second template to take action. The subscription renewal dates within any year are: 15 January and 15 June.

 
  Moderation Rules t
 

The task of the moderators is to keep the quality of communication and discussion in the mailing list high. In performing this task they should be careful not to give subscribers the impression that they are intolerant censors.

At present, the following persons act as moderators:

Dr. W. Scott Meyer
Dr. Tsu-huei Liu
Masahiro Kan
Orlando P. Hevia
Dr. Mustafa Kizilcay 
Dr Klaus Teichmann
Dr Hassan Nouri

The following is a list of criteria for rejection of a submitted message:

Very important:

  • non-English messages
  • long attachments, encoded files/messages
  • complete copy of the message being responded to
  • not ATP-related issues
  • personal messages addressed to a specific person
  • ATP secrets (information not available to every licensed user)
  • advertisements not related to ATP
  • announcements of conferences and courses related to competitive commercial transients programs
  • hyperlinks / pointers to a commercial competitor's Web site
  • inadequate identification of author (name, organization, location)
  • messages with blank or non-relevant Subj: fields
  • abusive or derogatory language

Important:

  • repeated messages
  • requests for publicly available papers and books

Messages asking for the following can be answered by a moderator privately:

  • very basic questions such as: where can I find program files and documents?
  • simple calls for help
  • requests for nonexistent materials, e.g., Rule Book in PDF format, a TACS tutorial, etc.
  • test of list server ("is this service still operating?")

To approve, a moderator simply replies to the submitted message with "OK" as the body of the reply. LISTSERV will normally pick up the confirmation request number from the subject line. If there is a problem, LISTSERV may ask you to re-send the approval confirmation along with the number. For instance, OK 6A943D3C. Note that signature must not be included in the body of Email.

Once a message is approved by one of the moderators, any other moderator attempting to approve the same message will be told that the message cannot be found and has probably expired (since the cookie for that message will be gone). So, it is important to inform all other moderators immediately, if one moderator believes a message should be rejected.

If a moderator does not want a message to be approved in its original form, he/she should notify other moderators immediately. Either the moderator informs the author directly (and sends copies to the other moderators), or the message could be forwarded to the list after minor modifications by the moderator. In the second case, the original subject should be preserved and the actual author should be clearly identified. But such editing by moderators is generally discouraged. It generally is preferable to inform the author privately, and have him make the necessary modifications. One obvious exception would be the removal of auto-attachments (e.g., Hotmail advertising or legal disclaimers that automatically are appended to a message).

If no action is taken by moderators, the message will expire automatically at the end of the time-out period (7 days) and will be deleted from the queue.
