Start Miraheze Mailing Lists
Open, Stalled, NormalPublic

Description

Myself and @Reception123 have been discussing creating a mailing lists for Miraheze

I'd suggest:
a) a reduced traffic mailer for downtime / important news / software upgrades etc.
and
b) a more frequently used mailer that covers everything in a + more news, RfC alerts and community discussion alerts

This would hopefully attract more users to meta and encourage community involvement.

I'm quite happy to help run this and set it up if it's free so I've assigned myself but am open to suggestions

As I have said before, I definitely think we need a way to encourage people to check Meta and be involved in the community, and mailing lists would be a good way to try this out.

https://www.mailerlite.com/pricing looks the best so far to me - I'm happy to set up one so we can test tonight at around 2130-2230

I can email logins to operations staff members as needed.

Per T4537 - account is being created.

Once we've done that then we can work on setting things up

@labster I've just noticed you didn't have any password (although me or @Reception123 could tell you but I've just added you to it on K8)
