Nudity in Mail Art - Call for Entries - Deadline: February 14, 2009

I chose Valentine's Day for the deadline for this call because I'm in a silly mood tonight. I am inviting everyone to send mail art on the theme of nudity. What does nudity represent for you? What kind of nudity are you comfortable with? What makes nudity sexual? What kind of nudity appeals to you? Have you made a nude self-portrait or been the subject of a nude work of art? What feelings does nudity create in you?

Be honest if you… Continue

As an experiment I have now set the IUOMA-Platform open for all new members. So they don't need an invitation anymore. This way everybody who wants to become a member of the IUOMA actually immediately is one. That comes close to the original idea of the IUOMA. For me as moderator the task to check if spammers come in and I surely will remove them if they add postings unrelated to aspects of mail-art. - Ruud Janssen

CHAT is enabled

The CHAT-function has been enabled on this IUOMA-platform. It means that there is an extra button where you can go to the CHAT-place. You can see who is online and communicate directly to them (if they are on the same CHAT-place as well). It works direct and quick. On the Main Page of the IUOMA-platform there is a small CHAT-window as well. You can follow the chat-sessions, take part, and discover this new tool.

Community open for everybody

The concept of this platform is as open as it can get. Any member can invite anybody. An outsider though has to be invited by someone from inside to prevent spammers from taking over. It is the same as how mail-art works. You discover a person who is doing mail-art. Send him mail, and he opens the mail-art network bu sending you more details of the mail-art community. So this concept is simple and good. Open communities without memberships dont even last a week because all kind of spammers take… Continue

I understand that a membership is required to have here an space and to avoid spam politics that other platforms of our mail art forums like messageboards, lists or yahoo groups are often victims, but reading and looking around what is happen here?
