[ardour-users] Ardour needs a forum

I find both forums and mailing lists useful. One thing that worries me about 
a mailing list is when things get off topic and there are discussions 
forming about a less important issue, while someone who is struggling 
setting up ardour gets ignored. The other annoying thing is when people are 
constantly asking questions that have been answered because they are new to 
the mailing list, however on a forum the question they have could be seen 
quite easily as a topic in an existing thread. Obviously Paul can't be 
helping developing ardour and be actively involved in both forums and 
mailing list, and I support his decision. However forums are often picked up 
by google searches whereas mailing lists are not, so it would be good for 
advertising. When I used to run a forum we put a RSS feeder in and that 
solved the problem someone mentioned earlier of having to use your browser 
and go and check for new posts...just click your feed! Sometimes I would 
like to ask people non-directly related ardour questions (ie music 
production or CCRMA help etc etc), but I refrain because I don't think the 
mailing list the appropriate place to do that.

My two cents...

P.S. James Rich...try the RSS Feed suggestion...it really works!
