Subject: RE: Forum vs. Mailinglist
From: Tom Sustins (tom.sustins_at_bbc.co.uk)
Date: 2003-07-18


The problem with this is that there seems to be a love of changing subject lines on this mailing list and no hard rules, plus every member seems to like his/her own method of formatting their reply which makes for extremely hard reading.

It is a shame, but it seems that the majority of this 'community' are against a forum. It appears to me that Rockbox will firmly remain a developer/'geek' application. There seems to be no interest in making Rockbox more user friendly and availible to the masses. Information is hard to find and made difficult for 'Microsoft lamers' (whatever the hell that means).

But still, it's free and no one earns/pays money... So who are we to complain? I think Archos should be worried.

Decent mail programs can put all messages from a given origin (e.g.
rockbox) in a separate folder, and sort them by thread. Voilą, your forum.
