Hello gmx users!

As announced in my previous message at the beginning of the week, we will be activating the new discussion forum today.

At the same time, the mailing list will move to read-only mode, so please don't be surprised when it is no longer possible to submit new messages to it. :)

As a reminder, you can sign up to the forum here: https://gromacs.bioexcel.eu/

Again, we are looking forward to interact with the community in this new way, and hope it will make it easier for you to solve issues that you have while using GROMACS.

Hello again @ all gmx-users!

A month has passed and we have moved forward with our work to move the user mailing list to the [discussion forum] https://gromacs.bioexcel.eu/. The discussion forum will open Friday, 8 May 2020.

We are now ready to accept people signing up to the forum at https://gromacs.bioexcel.eu/. We will start allowing new posts starting from Friday to give people some time to get used to the forum settings. At the same time (Friday), the gmx-users mailinglist will be set in read-only mode.

We are looking forward to engaging with you in this new format and hope it will help the community to solve user issues with GROMACS.

Hello gmx-users!

We have been working behind the scenes the last few months on some changes to the organization of the GROMACS project, one of them is switching our gmx-users mailing list to a forum

We are continuously re-thinking about how we can best engage with you and how people can get the best help when it comes to questions about using GROMACS for different scientific problems. While the user list has worked well for this in the past, it has also shown some deficiencies, mostly in finding already existing questions and the correct answers for them. To hopefully change this in the future we are now in the process of moving the existing list to use a Discourse forum instead that will be made public in the beginning of May. At the switching point, the current list will be read only (and the archive will be kept alive) so people will still be able to search it in the future for existing answers, but won't be able to post any new questions. The forum will still support the pure email based conversation if you prefer this kind of interaction, but it will also allow ranking of responses and make it easier to see which answers are coming from whom.

You will have the opportunity to sign up for the forum when it goes live and I'll send a reminder for it when the time comes.
