MAKNWS-L (the MAK-NEWS list) is the principal carrier of news from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). Both the MIC and MILS agencies are carried on this list, and make up the bulk of the information transmitted. Occasionally other information is distributed on this list, and is archived by HR-Net under the MAK-NEWS heading.

Included in these irregular items is usually a "survey" of the slavic macedonian electronic information systems ("Macedonian News General Info"), of which a recent example is included below.

There is also a signature summary of FYROM electronic information, included at the end of this page

minorities residing in the Republic of  Macedonia  are  respected
and  they  are also encouraged to contribute on MAKEDON on topics
of mutual interest.

explanations in the above two languages.

Macedonian language are allowed. Remarks about the origins of the
Macedonian people, their ethnicity and the name of  the  Republic
of Macedonia will not be tolerated.

5. The postings should  be  clear  and  concise  and  should  not
promote   inter-ethnic  intolerance,  irredentist  tendencies  or
contain insulting, inflamatory or ad  hominem  attacks.  Postings
containing such material will be rejected and the authors will be
warned not to submit such material in the  future  and  to  focus
their arguments.

6. Discussions concerning former Yugoslavia and the war in former
Yugoslavian  regions will not be allowed, unless they are related
to or of interest to Macedonians.

7. Anyone accepting and upholding these Guidelines is welcome  to

8. Membership from the list will be revoked in  cases  where  the
subscriber  repeatedly violates these guidelines. Such expulsions
will be made at the discretion of the owners/editors.

for opinions expressed on the list by other members.

10. The editors of MAKEDON reserve the right to  refuse  postings
which  do  not comply with the above guidelines. The editors also
reserve the right to change the guidelines.  Any  change  of  the
guidelines will be posted on MAKEDON promptly.
