We welcome new members to our network. By joining you will receive email notices about new content, and you will be eligible to post messages in our discussions. Depending on whether you have an account or not the following steps are necessary to join our network:
1. If you do not have an account, please visit http://networks.h-net.org/user/register and create one.
2. If you do have an account but haven't subscribed specifically to H-German, log in, select H-GERMAN from the list of networks at http://networks.h-net.org/networks and click "subscribe" to request a subscription. Your membership request will be screened by an H-German editor who will approve your application if your H-Net profile establishes your scholarly interests in German history or German studies. If your profile does not make this clear, the editor will contact you by email and ask you to comment briefly on your interest in our fields.
After your membership has been approved, you will be asked by email if you are interested in being added to our list of potential H-German book reviewers. If you are, we will also ask you to identify the topics or subjects of books which you would be interested in reviewing.
Managing your Subscriptions – some helpful tips:
A) Are you getting too much mail? Here are some options to address that:
- Set your notifications to digest.
Click “manage your notifications” at the bottom of any notification, log in, and next to your H-GERMAN subscription, choose “digest” from the drop down. Now you’ll get one daily file of discussion postings sent out around midnight Eastern time.
- Get RSS feeds.
At the bottom of our front page, there are RSS links to Discussions, Reviews and all posted content. You can use it with any web browser as well as email program. Our colleagues from H-Sport put together some instructions as well as further tips, which can be accessed here.
B) Personalize your setup.
Underneath the silhouette in the top right corner is quick access to your settings:
Networks – a list of networks you are subscribed to. Here you can also unsubscribe.
Notification settings – here you can decide for each network you are subscribed to if you want to get daily digested mails or individual mails on each posting
Your account - reset passwords, time zone, etc.
content – a summary of all of your submitted posts
Your MyHNet headquarters – an introduction on how to personalize your space is offered by the H-Net guide “Getting started with MyHNet.”
