Another point has been raised to me by someone off-list - adding a forum would significantly increase the surface area that the Code of Conduct team have to cover (and potentially become one of the biggest time sinks required), so we need to consider them in any decision. Andrew On Mon, Aug 12,

I agree James - forums tend to age slightly worse than mailing lists for archival content, but I'm hoping the improved experience in the moment makes up for it. Plus, our current mailing list archive depends on a service from Google, and I trust those less these days (though I hope Google

I’ve moderated a couple small-medium forums (2k-8k) members as well as participated in many online. I am in favor of moving to a forum system for a lot of reasons. I’d be curious who would be the community manager(s) (not moderators per se) and if the tone would be similar to the docs and wiki or

I'm not necessarily opposed to this, but I am a bit skeptical of the long-term archival utility of forums, in large part due to my experience as a moderator of some decent-sized ones. I think making them useful for that purpose is going to require about the same level of manual curation as, say,

Just skimming this mailing list occasionally, I find pretty comical all those "I think you found the wrong mailing list" replies. Not that there is anything wrong with that, what else can one do? Just imho any new communication channel should have a way of moving messages to a correct place. Maybe

I'm up for a forum. I started replying on mailing lists because that's what there is, but it does get pretty messy and single thread driven. PHPBB anyone? Shame there isn't a mature Django based forum (that I know of). On Sat, 10 Aug 2019 at 11:30, Carlton Gibson wrote: > I've thought about

I've thought about this sort of thing a few times. My concern has always been that it'd be "just one more channel" when there are already too many to follow: here, django-users, IRC (multiple channels) and so on. If we did it under the aegis of the Django (Org/...SF) and we as a group of

Thank you for bringing up the idea, Andrew. As expressed at PyCon AU, I'd be interested in giving an alternative to a mailing list a shot. Something that supports subscribing to topics sounds like a good idea to overcome the amount of mails one may not be interested in. Cheers, Markus On
