" If the former list members want the casual, but widespread appreciation of
Sumo to be diminished, then stay over on the Forum with your little party.
If they want to spread the love of Sumo, then they will return to the list
and share their knowledge and insights."
How do you consider a mailing list that sends posts privately to members'
email boxes to more effective in spreading sumo than a public forum that can
be seen by anyone?
it seems that a lot of the opposition to the SF is due to the format, people
being confused by "too many threads", etc, but I think most of you need to
give it an honest try. It will surely be difficult at first if you've never
used a forum like it before, but then again, wasn't e-mail difficult hte
first time you used it, also? the SML was great in the past, but the day of
maililng lists has long passed and it's just not relevant any more (the
format, not the content). there's no reason why all of the posters on the
SML could not move to the SF and continue on with the same, if not better,
experience. I started on both, but found the SF to be easier to navigate and
more funtional as pictures and such can be seen on the same page as text. it
seems many people made the same decision as me, as some of the best SML
posters left to go to SF, while I don't think the opposite happened at all.
Now I check the SML only once in a while to see if there's any new, unique
information. Most often there isn't, and questions that have gone unanswered
on the SML have been discussed thoroughly on SF.
What I'm trying to say is, if you're truly interested in Sumo, in the
content of what we're all talking about, why not move over to the SF. You
don't have to stop using the SML, but refusing to use the forum shows that
you're more committed to the medium than the topic.
