you need to start a #phplist channel on freenode

Postby WebDragon » 1:06am, Mon 11 Feb, 2008

this forum is insane. topics go unanswered for days because no one human can keep up with the volume of spam generated here .. I highly recommend ditching this forum in favor of a wiki format and supplementing it with a public channel on freenode.net irc network so that users and developers can have a place to hang out and meet and get questions answered more readily, and have a place that experienced users can help participate in answering the questions of others.

Even without the spam problem, a web-based forum/bulletin-board is far from the most productive media. a mailing list connected via gmane.org would allow users to use a newsreader format to follow the list and thread topics more readily without filling their email inboxes with tons of posts.

I'd be happy to assist with the #phplist channel on freenode if anyone else is interested in such a thing.

surprised there was not a single bit of commentary on this..

this is one of the failings of the web-forum system.

posts go unread and unseen in large quantities,

IMHO the BBS should not consider the post read if one does "mark all posts read" .. if it actually did that you'd notice a marked decrease in the # of times a post claims it has been actually read.
