vrf New Vee Users Forums

Question asked by VRFuser on Mar 22, 2004
Hi VRF,

my proposal for Agilent would be to store all the VRF traffic on their website, maybe within ADN. This would help to retrieve the historical Q&As. If it shall be very nice and easy, the system could try to generate threads from the email subjects. A full text search at least should be possible.

I'd suggest that the ideal solution would be a VEE web-forum-like
interface to the VRF mailing list. Some folks like logging onto a forum
and dealing with the web interface. Others like dealing with email.

Why not build a forum that incorporates both?

i.e. when I post a note to VRF it shows up on web forum and vice-versa?

heck- to do it right include usenet!
