Q. How do I get my announcement posted to the Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter?
A. Fill out our Post Request Submission Form, and the rabbits will consider your post for inclusion.
Q. Can I submit a post request by emailing you guys?
A. Nope. Well, technically you CAN, but it will be ignored and deleted. For real. So don't. Use the form.
Q. What is an appropriate post for the Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter?
A. The JRS is the primary mouthpiece for the Burning Man Project to communicate with Burners around the world. There are currently over 170,000 subscribers on the list, and we have essential information that we must communicate to them throughout the year -- the last thing we want to do is waste their precious inbox space and attention span. Thus, we will only include posts that are (in our opinion) of broad enough interest, relevance and importance to that audience. We reserve the right to post or not post anything.
Q. Will you post my Kickstarter fundraiser?
A. We only publish very high-profile projects that will have a significant impact on the community (e.g. a LOT if not ALL of Burning Man participants will experience it), or ones that, in our opinion, are of special interest to the community. Alternatively, you are welcome to submit your Kickstarter for inclusion on our Support a Project page, which we promote regularly.
Q. What types of posts are appropriate for your Support a Project category?
A. We use this section to promote select fundraisers (see above), and call-outs for support through participation, material donations and volunteering for your project. Alternatively, we encourage you to post your project needs (or skills you're offering) on our Spark system.
Q. Will you post my local event in Events & Happenings?
A. Likely not, unless your event is somehow particularly interesting, inspiring or reflective of Burning Man's culture in the world, thus making it newsworthy to our global audience. Alternatively, we encourage you to submit your events to your local Regional Network contact for inclusion in their lists.
Q. What types of posts are appropriate for your Participate category?
A. We use this section to promote the wide variety of on-playa and off-playa participation opportunities in our community. We love seeing the rich mix of offerings, from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Q. How do I unsubscribe from the Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter?
A. Send an email (and this part is essential) FROM the email address which is subscribed to the Jack Rabbit Speaks to bman-announce-unsubscribe (at) burningman (dot) com. The system will respond to you with an email to confirm your intent to unsubscribe. Reply to that email, and you're done. NOTE: if you don't send either of these emails from the address with which you're subscribed, it will not work.
Q. I tried that and it didn't work. What do I do now?
A. If you have any other email address with which you might be subscribed, send an email to bman-announce-unsubscribe (at) burningman (dot) com from those. Try all of them.
Q. OK, I tried that too, and it didn't work either. Now I'm going nuts. What do I do?
A. If you've exhausted those resources, email jackrabbitspeaks (at) burningman (dot) com with the subject line UNSUBSCRIBE. In the body of the email, list all the email addresses you use. Seriously. All of them. Our volunteers will do it by hand.
SUBSCRIBING OR SWITCHING EMAIL ADDRESSES
Q. How do I subscribe to the Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter?
A. Send an email FROM the email address you wish to have subscribed to bman-announce-subscribe (at) burningman (dot) com. You will receive a confirmation email in return. Reply to that email, and you're on!
Q. How do I change which email address I'm subscribed with?
A. Unsubscribe the email you want unsubscribed. Then subscribe with the new one. See instructions on how to accomplish both of these, above.
Q. I have a kind of random question. Who can I ask?
A. You have two options. You can email questions (at) burningman (dot) com and ask them (that's your best bet, and a good first place to start). Otherwise, you can email jackrabbitspeaks (at) burningman (dot) com and the Rabbits will help you out. We're good like that.
