SUGGESTION: WWWBoard (Shafat please read)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

This group seems to be discussing many subjects which sometimes does not
concern others.  Would it be feasible to create a WWWboard. There are a lot
of advantages of using the mail server but creating a WWWboard would
certainly help:

1. reduce the bandwidth.
2. Categories can be created within the WWWboard for various discussions -
SEAOSC, Construction Law, steel, concrete, jokes.
3. unwanted materials (offensive stuff) can be easily removed.  Take a look
at the following sites which host a similar board.
4. Follow-up to a question can be easily tracked back.
5. Easy to maintain an archive.
6. Another location to place banner ads.
7. A separate room/board can be created for the board members (password
protected of course!)of the SEAOSC.

The above links gets more hits than the SEAINT server.

This above link is of engineering interest.

Knowing the track record of this email server I am sure some people would
ask "Do you know how tough it is to install this", well I have installed one
for a very small group.  If interested check this out:

I hope I am not wasting the members time by coming up with some sort of a
crazy idea or something which has already been discussed!!!
