I actually kinda like what we have here. It is a different environment then a message board. All the discussions come into my inbox in a line. It’s kinda like if I had a record of the conversations that went on between all of us if we sat around in my living room. Different topics going on but I only go one place to get all of them. I’m not voting against going to a message forum instead of a mailing list, but if the question is raised then you know how I feel about it. Ultimately I don’t think it is something we can vote on. I think it is up to whichever person is actually the one running this board to add a forum to their web server. I guess we could go and setup a forum independent of them but we’d only be taking away from the site that I think is the center of 6th scale tank combat. I’ll go where the boss says to go.

Has anyone considered using the Delphi
Forums for the RC Tank Combat discussions? Using
While it isn't perfect, it has a very slick interface that allows topics to be customized and grouped (e.g. mechanical, electrical, events, treads, etc) That way if you are interested in a particular topic, it is very easy to look for information that pertains to that specific area. And you can post pictures directly to the group.
The Robot Combat guys have 5 or 6 groups on there, and there is a lot of great information that is easy to get at. Or- it is very easy to ignore areas that you have no interest in.
The forum is free and it is easy to set
up. Each forum can choose several moderators who can delete off
topic posts, move posts to the correct area, etc. There is also a
search function that works pretty good- but it only allows searching back 3
months (or something like that). Maybe you could keep the archives on the
rctankcombat site and migrate the new stuff to
I'm new here, so maybe this has been discussed before- sorry if it's something you've already talked about!
