NOTE:Yahoogroups provides list owners and moderators with activity logs which include a complete record of all attempts to subscribe or unsubscribe the list and whether the attempts were successful. It takes members only a few seconds to unsubscribe themselves, it takes the listowner or a moderator several minutes. If a request is received for a manual unsub, we will not unsub you unless a search of our activity logs, on your subscribed e-mail address, returns a recorded attempt, by you, to unsubscribe or you provide us with a legitimate reason for being unable to do so.
Yahoogroups allows you to choose whether you receive reflected, digest or no-mail.
To change your e-mail address:

I've joined, but I can't post!
Our newbies undergo a 2 week probationary lurk, called a "Newbie Lurk." This is to give newbies a chance to observe the conversation, get a feel for the tone and acquaint themselves with the rules before posting on a regular basis. The newbie lurk also helps weed out those who join with ulterior motives (example: commercial advertisers.) We grant voice manually and sometimes we do miss someone, by mistake. If you are a returning subscriber, an existing subscriber adding or switching e-mail addresses or you find you do not have posting priveleges after two weeks, please contact the mod staff.
If you've been a member for awhile and do not fit any of the above descriptions:
I screwed up - I've been kick/banned, now what?
On most larger, long established, organized lists the only penalty is kick/ban and all bans are permanent. We offer newbie assistance and have lesser penalties for many rules violations. While most of our bans are permanent, as is standard, the listowner does, very rarely, institute a so-called "probationary ban," instead. Probationary bans have the privelege to petition the listowner for a lift of ban after a period of one year (time may vary in special circumstances.) This is no guarantee that the ban will be lifted. If you wish to know the status of your ban, contact the listowner.
To petition for a lift of probationary ban, you will have to state your offense(s), appologise and ask the listowner's permission to rejoin, by private mail. Your request, all files pertaining to your case, fairness to other listers or banned members, past, present or future and potential member reaction to your return will be reviewed and discussed by the listowner, the mod staff and may also be reviewed by a council of elders and/or any member(s) affected by your violation.
If you are granted permission to rejoin, your return will be subject to special conditions set forth by the listowner. This will include, in all cases, but will not necessarily be limited to both a repeat of newbie lurk and that you never mention, on list, either your violation or your ban, under any circumstances, even if asked about it by another member. If a petition for lift of ban is turned down, or the ban is more than two years old, the ban becomes permanent. The listowner reserves the right to commute any probationary ban to permanent or to dispense with probationary bans, without notification or explanation. The Monkees Mailing List is not a public forum, it is privately owned and operated. Subscribers (aka members or listers) are considered honored guests of the listowner.
