I vote for a forum and shutting down the mailing list.

I couldn't agree more about lua using a forum, I use
forums everyday

the mailing list.

I don't particularly like my e-mail account
recording all of the lua
list interactions, it seems like a waste, since the
majority of things
I cannot answer and or aren't usefull to me which I
just need to
delete out of my inbox.

It would be better just to log onto the lua forums,
go into a specific
category, and just browse what problems people are
having, answer
some, or post one of your own.

plus, the ability to do a keyword search on existing
topics allows you
to easily seek already asked knowledge, I'm sure
there is a way to do
that with the mailing list, but I couldn't tell you

As for the icy north forums, I wen't there first
before joining the
list, the lua area on those forums are dead, lua
needs a well
advertized dedicated user forum.

I was both suprised and annoyed to find that lua
doesn't have a forum,
since it seems to be the de-facto for many other

There are certainly more abilities for the
posters and nothing less than the
mailing list,..

Please, no! No no no no no! Forums are awful ---
they're slow, clunky,
dreadful from a usability issue, they force your
users to go and get the
messages rather than delivering them to your
users' inboxes...

If you absolutely must have a webforum-like
interface, then try checking out
the GMANE gateway to the mailing list:

But please, let's keep the mailing list!
