Maybe this is just me, but does anyone think that it would be a nice idea to
have PICLIST on a messageboard with different forums and topics. See
http://www.overclockers.co.uk for an example of what I mean (click on
messageboard). I don't know what it would involve to do it, but I think it
could be far easier to read.

Just my $0.02 here. Personally I'd hate it.

The big advantage of a mailing list is that it gets delivered direct to my
desk, I don't have to go looking for it - Also I don't have to endure
someone elses's ideas about layout and colour, distracting banners buttons
and helpful links, and having to navigate dodgy tree structures to try to
read the mail. There are several quite good web fora on topics that are of
great interest to me but which I rarely visit - OTOH I eagerly read several
mailing lists daily that cover the same topics.

It's _much_ easier to read mail than a web forum IMO. (Even more so for
those with accessibility issues).

Not for me.  I *much* prefer email.  There's been a number of web
messageboards that I've seen that were interesting but I no longer read them
*because they are web based*.  I'll take email over a web board any day -
especially for high-volume topics.

I agree as well... MUCH prefer e-mail over web based forums... HOWEVER, it
might not be so bad if the e-mail list continued as-is for us guys, with a
decent web forum wrapper around it for those who prefer them...

My $0.0133476USD ($0.02CAN):

And how.

Message board promote HTML use. They're hard to access. You can't archive
them easily yourself (I've got PICLIST going back to Nov. 1999 archived as
single-message, and from there to August 1999 archived as digest). Plus, you
can't download the latest messages to a Palm to read on the way to work (if
I had a Palm and a job, I'd do this...)

No way. From experience, web-based message boards may look cute to start off
with, but once they get filled up, those automatically formatted pages
become REALLY bloated. Imaging waiting around for 10s every time you click
'back' after reading an article, while the 200k index tree is being loaded
from your browser cache.  The standard solution is either to show only
thread headers or splitting things up into separate pages. But both these
are unacceptable usability-wise and a royal pain in the ass when you're
trying to track down specific articles.

They're great for truly 'public' forums intended to be accessed sparodically
by anybody who comes upon it and wishes to leave his/er mark, (eg. on CNN).
But web-BBS's have no place for this apparently close-knit and highly
specialized enclave.

I've yet to see threaded  messageboard system that's easier and
quicker to browse than a list of emails subjects, which you can
spped-browse quickly. Also I've never seen a web system you can use
offline. No thanks.

I can not agree more. Please keep the piclist as it is (the tags neither
bother nor help me, so keep them if they are usefull to al leat some
people).

The STAMP and PICBASIC lists are on Egroups(now owned by Yahoo). I
get mine as email text digests or you can read them with a browser at the
sight. Attachments are stripped. They have a files area for each group to
post files to.

I also subscribe to a couple of lists run through egroups, and get the messages
by email. However I can see no advantage to what we currently run, and much
prefer the search facility that the piclist archive has. I have not tried to do
any real searching of an egroups archive however, as both groups are small.
