May First/People Link Lists and Feeds

May First/People Link has several email lists and RSS feeds to help you keep up-to-date on what is happening both politically and technically with the organization.

Common channels for members

Below is a description of the channels that we encourage all members to join.

  • The All members list includes everyone with an email account on the May First/People Link servers. While a member of May First/People Link you cannot opt-out of this list. This channel is used infrequently to convey technology emergencies and critical information about membership involvement (e.g. announcements of the annual membership meeting).
  • Messages are posted on (sometimes several times a day or as infrequently as once a month) whenever we are encountering a technology problem affecting a large number of users or when we are planning maintenance that will impact a large number of users. You may also subscribe to the RSS feed or the service-advisories email list. Members who indicate a Tech contact when joining will have their tech contact email address automatically subscribed to the service-advisories list.
  • Members database. We maintain a database of members via our CiviCRM installation at Email addresses entered in our control panel are automatically added to this database.
  • Live chat. We are often available via IRC
  • Follow our Twitter @mayfirst or our gnu social account from any statusnet or ostatus supporting social network all service advisories as well as links to our member feeds are posted on these accounts
