[DML] Re: DML makeover?



I'm 1 of the 1,967 who likes the DML as it is. Call me "lazy" but it's more
convenient to me to have all the messages come to my inbox in digest form. All
messages are in one place, in chronological order. I don't have to go clicking a
bunch of times to possibly over look a subject I may be interested in. It may be
because I work on a computer all day long that I don't want to spend any more
time navigating around a web forum. I guess it's just Pepsi or Coke drinkers?

How about digest emails instead of individual? Is that possible? 
I would call that the best of both worlds.

IIRC Dave Stragand had a nice write up on the differences between email list vs.
web based forum users in the archives. 
(or was that another list or a web forum - sorry too many lists to keep track ;-)

However in all the time i have been reading this list, i dont recall 
the 'consensus' voting on any proposal whatsoever to move the list 
onto another format. Honestly, it only takes a little time and 
effort from those at the 'top' to do so.

I enjoy reading all of the Delorean related 'newsgroups' and as you 
appreciate we now have a very good choice, but i am sorry to say 
this but the DML has become VERY outdated, what with many other 
forums now thriving, unless the people that look after this 
newsgroup change with the times, this site will become as redundant 
as DMC factory workers became 25 years ago :(.

There are many forum programmes that can send individual emails to 
those who wish to recieve them, so sorry i dont see that as an 
argument.

So why not put this to the newsgroup members as a poll or a ballot 
or something else and prove me wrong?.... That way its the members 
that decide.

Take a look at the actual 'posts' profile, at the bottom of this 
page, unless people dont need help anymore, i would say they are 
already going elsewhere for it.
