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:
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
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.

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.
