#REDIRECT[[Communications Methods]]
Our general communications policy is simple:
 
# Pick a system that works to facilitate communication
# Use it
# Don't change it unless it's failing.
 
== E-Mail ==
 
E-mail is the most common method of communication within HacDC and between HacDC and the outside world.
 
=== Public E-mail Lists ===
 
Our public lists, which anyone can sign up for, are:
 
* [http://hacdc.org/mailman/listinfo/announce_hacdc.org announce@hacdc.org] : A moderated, weekly update list designed to keep the general public informed about what's happening, what's been discussed and what's coming up at HacDC.
* [http://hacdc.org/mailman/listinfo/blabber_hacdc.org blabber@hacdc.org] : Our completely unmoderated and public open discussion forum covering a wide range of topics and questions.
 
=== Public POC E-mail ===
 
All inquiries from the outside world, via e-mail, should go to [[info@hacdc.org]].  This is a [[Wikipedia:Ticket_tracking|ticket tracking]] system that helps ensure incoming issues are routed appropriately.
 
[[info@hacdc.org]] may be used within the web page, wiki, on documents, flyers, etc. as a way for those outside HacDC to contact the organization.
 
=== Internal/Member E-mail Addresses/Aliases ===
 
Each member is entitled to an @hacdc.org e-mail account.  HacDC shall offer hosting for @hacdc.org e-mail accounts or offer the option of forwarding to the member's chosen e-mail address.  Member e-mail shall not be archived, except as chosen by the member in a hosted e-mail account.
 
=== Internal E-mail Lists/Accounts ===

=== Project Contact E-Mail Addresses ===
 
Each ongoing project must have an e-mail address associated with it.  The e-mail address may be an alias for the project coordinator, a discussion list for the project as a whole or an alias to info@ so [[The Ministers]] may be able to send project inquiries to the correct relevant parties.  In any case, the status of each project contact e-mail must be documented here:

Visit [http://chat.hacdc.org chat.hacdc.org] or point your IRC client to #hacdc at [irc://irc.freenode.org/hacdc  freenode.org]. This is the primary chat medium for HacDC.
 
Projects whose communities rely on IRC are encouraged to start their own IRC channels or actively participate in existing channels - we have control of the entire #hacdc-* namespace, if sub-channels are needed.
 
A few folks also use the 'blabber' conference room on the jabber server conference.hacdc.org.  Jabber services are also provided by [http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Communication hackerspaces.org].
