moving all this awesomeness to discourse.org


#1

Hi anonymous (and non-anonymous) akratics!

We’re ready to migrate this whole google group to a discourse.org forum.
Exciting! Do you have opinions on how best to do that? Here are our
tentative desiderata:

  1. Move all the archives so everything’s in one place.
  2. Set everyone up with the same email prefs (individual vs digest, etc) so
    there’s nothing you have to actually do. Ideally you don’t have to even be
    aware that anything changed.
  3. Blow the google group away so there’s no ambiguity about where the cool
    kids are hanging out.

Discourse.org crashes Firefox* when scrolling down the home page. Should I
worry about that repeating?

  • Firefox on an up-to-date Ubuntu 14.03 LTS system

I read most of the google groups posts from the web interface at
groups.google.com, not via emails. Would it be possible to setup discourse
to work as a mailing list (as well as having the normal interface, of
course), and have it archived by google groups? Google groups supports
that, but I don’t know about discourse’s ability to function as a mailing
list.

Also, maybe it’s just me, but I was never able to properly navigate
discourse forums. The interface is somewhat confusing, though I’m not sure
I can pinpoint why exactly. Maybe it’s just not being used to it…
