Re: Site for LedgerSMB Forum


Here is my thinking:

If you are going to do something like this, you really want to take
credit for this.  Please state specifically that you are running this
for the community as a donation to the larger community as a whole.
If you want to advertise your business as sponsoring it, all the

There are several reasons I ask this of unofficial projects:
1)  It gives the contributor a greater payback on the contribution.
More glory and exposure so to speak.
2)  It gives the project an ability to show that we have a larger
active community.  More glory for us too.
3)  Should a problem occur, there is an obvious point of contact and
there is no confusion as to what is going on or who to contact.

I've been lurking for a while watching LSMB develop, very pleased with
what I see.
There were posts about a need for a forum but no one stepped up.
I think a forum will be a big usability step forward for many
users/potential users.
I also think a forum will allow some advantages with sections OFF the
mailing lists:
Large posts such as configuration files or posts that have a very small
interest group can be handled better in a separate forum rather than
irritating mailing lists users with big uninteresting emails to wade
Easy to find copies of FAQ's and HOWTO guides

I have set up a forum here:

Link to actual forum:

I would like to add the archived mailing lists (as far back as is
appropriate) and have the new editions update the forum and vice-versa.
I could really use help with that part, setting up scripts to move
existing mailing lists into database and where to best get the data/send
the data

I think some OS specific forums could be really helpful.
Any other suggestions on which categories are most appropriate?
I haven't run a forum before so I am open to ANY level of advice and
I picked a free, perl forum to use since I speak perl ( a little better
than badly, but learning) but don't speak PHP at all.

If anyone sees anything that needs correcting or is inappropriate please
notify me.
Please send any forum related email to ..hidden..
