Well.....if it comes to a vote..I like
this forum much better.
In my opinion, more pros than cons.
My mailbox is getting pretty large.
With this forum...it will be easy to navigate
and pick subjects to respond to.
Les.....You've done a GREAT job !!
In addition to the QS7 being an awesome
keyboard, your site (with all the tips, info,
help, etc...) made it all the more easier
to decide on an Alesis synth.
Thanks for all your hard work !!
: : I can see that that he Forum medium has a lot of
: : advantages.
: : However, the list has at least one non-trivial
: : advantage for me: since I pay for my home ISP
: : (aol), I can spend as little as 3 minutes online
: : and download my daily messages.
: : After that I go offline and I spend as much time as I want
: : sorting and sifting.
: I think we could have a mailing list for those who
: prefer getting the messages by mail. The Forum
: messages could be sent to them. Most people
: have easy and unlimited access to the web, and they
: may want to take advantage of the Forum. The
: messages here are instantly available, and for
: everyone intersted, no subscription hassles.
: The List is getting quite large, and the distribution
: of messages depends on hundreds of mail servers,
: many of them not exectly trouble-free.
: The Forum is also an archive of the past messages,
: so no one will miss anything, even if their mail
: server was down for a while. When I see a lot of
: messages, I will make the searchable by keywords,
: which will help finding the topics you're interested.
: I hope I will get more fedback from users, let them
: decide which one they like better : Forum or List.
