There are two main tasks for list admin officers: moderating posts to the list and responding to sign-up requests.
As a list admin you will receive an email advising that someone has posted to the list. These should be self-explanatory and non-controversial posts can simply be approved by the first list admin to see the email.
For some reason Google Groups no longer notifies list admins of sign up requests. It is recommended that list admins regularly check for join requests and approve as appropriate. To date we have not had a problem with spammy subscriptions so unless there is an obvious issue join requests are routinely approved.
Posts to the list should be restricted to calls for papers/works, job announcements, and topics of specific interest to the NIME community.
Except where specifically relevant to a large proportion of the NIME community, posts regarding products, software and concert performances should not be posted.
