IGNITe/400 Mailing List Archive Entry

If you can cross-post then I take it all back -- it'll be wonderful. But
you'll have to allow people who choose the mailing list option to subscribe
only to sections of their choice, otherwise they will be inundated with a
barrage of mail.

RE: IGNITe News Server on Line

Bleddyn Williams

Hi Itzy what we are trying to offer is as many services as possible. I get
some messages from people who dont like using WebPages and prefer email, I
get other people who wont join mailing lists. And we get some who probably
dont even know what NNTP is?

What we would like to achieve is you take your pick over which one to use.
Then because they are all 400 based they link to each other and cross post.
So you only worry about email if that's what you want, while other people
use the medium they like. I dont know how easy that will be to achieve but
we are working on it. And if that can be done then we really do have an
environment that benefits everyone.

At the same time we also promote the services available on the 400 as we
hope to reach not just technical but decision makers able to influence the
platform of the company they work for. It may just be that some one is
looking to set up online newsgroups within the INTRANET they run and they
visit IGNITe and see that its possible to do.

Thanks Bleddyn

As far as I can tell, in the way of discussion forums IGNITe provides:
1. an electronic forum on the IGNITe site
2. a mailing list discussion group
3. and now, a nntp:// newsgroup.

Aren't all these things a bit redundant when any one of them will do?

Don't get me wrong -- full marks to IGNITe for trying to provide a good
service, but I think quality rather than quantity would be best. (I also
don't want to have to keep up with 2 forums all the time ;-))
