I removed the statistical programm at this NING site because I believe it brought some pop-up advertisings and also caused the site not to work correctly. Please let me know when you find faults. I will try to correct them. Thanks for the mail-artists that reported the eroors to me. - Ruud

With all the new members joining the IUOMA I am preparing a new publication with the 500 members (when we reach that number) which will be available in hardcopy format too. A digital version will be available for free for a few months so you have access to the memberlist when you want to.

JOIN A WORLD PREMIERE!
Dear Mail-Art friends,
twenty-seven years ago, I edited my first Mail-Art Catalog for Peace still during the cold war. In re-united Germany, I have started now teaching Mail-Art in the army. My students are former soldiers with experience in Kosovo and Afghanistan. Most of them were still born in the GDR = East Germany.
They have chosen to be re-trained as kindergartners and educators, i.e.: men in a traditional women´s profession. Their… 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

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.

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
