        Personally I've always found forums contain way to much low quality content, may be that just me, but I will definitely be sad to see the list go :(

        Steve,

        Thanks for the question.  You're right that we don't want to put up barriers to participation in the community.

        YUILibrary.com forums offer 
        • OpenID login
        • RSS feeds by forum and by tag
        • Email subscriptions by forum
        There's no need to browse -- the RSS and email support keeps the content coming to you, but with more fine-grained control over what and how.

        We're seeing more activity on the forums today than on the list, and activity on the forums has been trending up steeply.

        Regards,
        Eric

        If so that's v.bad don't have time to browse forums, as I suspect is the case for 90% of people here, so participation will drop dramatically. Would be sad to see that happen :(

        The offending members and messages have been purged from the group.  I've closed the group to new membership to help curtail the problem; as noted previously, I'll be turning off new messages in the group at the end of next week, just allowing any currently ongoing conversations to complete over the next few days.

                Yes, the forums support replying via email. That was one of the requirements for building it.

                Does this include being able to reply with email? If not its gonna be a no go here, I'm on must 30+ email lists and having to click through to a forum just to reply, adds time which I simply don't have.

                Steve,

                Thanks for the question.  You're right that we don't want to put up barriers to participation in the community.

                YUILibrary.com forums offer 
                • OpenID login
                • RSS feeds by forum and by tag
                • Email subscriptions by forum
                There's no need to browse -- the RSS and email support keeps the content coming to you, but with more fine-grained control over what and how.

                We're seeing more activity on the forums today than on the list, and activity on the forums has been trending up steeply.

                Regards,
                Eric

                      I think that is fine, people would (should) normally search the forum for an answer to the problem they are having so they would already be in the forum and if not, it is not a bad idea forcing people to go there.  Once there, they might do a search.  I don't think there could possibly be a reliable enough way to specify the correct forum for new threads, messages would be misplaced all the time. 

                      It is great as it is.  Thanks

                        The parsing script then looks for a properly formed subject header, if the header isn't properly formed then it either goes into a General forum, or it isn't posted at all.
                         
                        I believe that something like that would probably work.
                         
                        I own two forum sites myself, and an increasing number of people are attempting to reply to threads by email. I find myself having to remind them that they can't do that and must return to the site to reply to the threads.

                        It should be noted that you can't create new topics via email, only
                        reply to topics.

                        Since the forum system is categorized, I haven't found a good way to
                        accept incoming new messages and apply them to the proper forum.

                        I am open to suggestions, but it's not a priority since most people
                        use the Forum to post because they can post to only the parts of the
