Well, a forum is different from a list (in my mind at least). I’m
looking
for something like Google G… I really don’t like mailing lists
because
of the volume of emails (even in digest mode).

I know there is a ruby group but what about rails?

You just entered it. Coincidentally, the list is also mirrored in
http://www.ruby-forum.com/forum/3

How does the forum interface to the list differ from any other forum?
You don’t have to subscribe to the list, just hang around in
http://www.ruby-forum.com and pick the topics that you find interesting.

I actually set-up a forum and never got around to promoting it at
all. But I promise that I would lovingly maintain it if folks want
to start using it. All it takes is a few people to start using it
and the snowball effect will perpetuate itself and then we can all
have a nice searchable forum to complement this list :slight_smile:

http://www.ror-forums.com

Any thoughts on how to improve it for the community?

Thank you. I just found it prior to your response. ruby-forum is what
I was looking for!

This mailing list can be accessed, both for reading and posting,
through a Usenet news reader, at address

  news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.rails


We develop, watch us RoR, in numbers too big to ignore.

I use a gmail account for mailing lists because it combines some of
the best features of mailing lists and forums.
