RE: [DML] Product sub forums?



No no, put it as a section of the DMCnews home page, just like the
photos section, so it is web based not email based.  Moderators, is this
possible?

My two cents:

This idea would be wonderful if dmcnews were a web based forum. It's
easy to
create different sections in such a forum and simple to enforce
discussion
rules (moderators can simply move messages between sections as
appropriate).

However, for an email list, this idea is basically unworkable due to the
nature of email based lists.
