Over the next week or so, LFNW will be migrating our mailing lists over to dedicated categories in our Discourse server.

Why?

Well, a few reasons:

  • Our Discourse server offer all the benefits of the mailing list, plus a more feature rich web interface to boot.
  • Discourse provides a much nicer way to thread people into conversations, and will allow more cross-interaction with the overall community - helping bring BLUG and LFNW closer together.
  • Our discussion forums are professionally hosted and managed.
  • Our mailing lists are currently managed on a virtual server running mailman, and we’re just not keen on maintaining it anymore.

Thanks for understanding!
