Mailing list better than a web based forum?
« on: March 20, 2012, 11:47:27 AM »
Hi,

I'd like to suggest to start a mailing list for nedi.

A mailing list ist public. It can be archived by standard tools and than indexed via search engines.

This makes it much easier to find the solutions for problems.

Greetings,

Michael.

I don't agree. I consider mailing list a bit "old fashioned", sorry  :)

I don't want even more mails and browsing a mailing list archive can be very cumbersome with all the replies all over several threads...

If a forum is used with the appropriate topics it should be fairly easy to find information for everyone (I actually moved a couple of your threads). In addition I never had problems with the search function here...

Old fashioned does not mean bad. It just prooved working.

In mailing lists you can answer specifically to on mail. In forums you don't.

All mail clients use filter to automatically sort mails to folders. So I have a folder for Mailing lists and folders for every list. So I keep my inbox clean.

Of course not, but I sometimes use webmail, mobile phone and a "real" client. That's why I can't really use smart folders and the likes...
