Ewwwwww no NNTP support. I don't suppose complaining about it will do much.

They said email will be easier and RSS will be an option, if I remember. Anyone working with RSS feeds from other places that might be able to do a bit of a compare and contrast to how it might be for us?

Even if you can work completely from email, I have to think that you'd have to manually set up filters if you wanted to sort posts out into various forum folders. Tho it would be possible, it would be somewhat of a pain to have to do so, compared to NNTP... and I'm not sure at all that you could set it up to be threaded. If someone knows more or differently than that, please share. I've done quite of bit of filtering (using Outlook) before, and I've occasionally used NNTP, but I've not done both for the same forums so this is kind of a new ball game.

Why would I want the forums in my email? I have enough things to sort
out of there as it is. I tried the rss feed for photoshop news, but it
just seems like a bunch of ads, which you can't reply to.

When I worked for one forum, I got a copy of every post in my email. Since the subject line had keywords in it, it was actually fairly easy to have the program automatically sort posts into folders for each area.

The new forums are supposed to have similar keywords, so it should be possible to do the same, in Outlook at least. My grumble is having to set it up, which you don't have to do with NNTP.

I have a shared email at work, and I wouldn't want forum messages
clogging up the email. The loss of functionality from the NTTP site
would be immense. you would have to filter each new subject into a new
folder to get anything resembling a thread, and then you couldn't switch
between thread view and lastest post. lots of work for less functionality.

I don't use NTTP at although I did set it up in SeaMonkey a few months ago to answer some replies. I had to turn of my sig file I subscribe to two or three list through the webxx system which notifies me of only messages that have receive replies in my email box. the I click on the link, since I use SeaMonkey (which is the all in one version of Mozilla (equivalent to FF/TB combined) I just pop to the web page for the message on the Webxx system.

Easy as falling off a log. and recently comes in almost instantaneously . In the past when the had some uoutdated software and too small Servers , and hadn't feed the hamster enough it was painfully slow. but for several months its been great.

It sounds like the email features will push many potentially valuable informational threads into private discussions. :(

When you get an email, it will be from the forum, not the poster. When
you reply you'll be replying to the forum.

Well most of the old MM forum users are newsreader folk so I can see no NTTP going over like a lead balloon.

Options for NNTP users are under exploration. They won't be left out of the loop.

Is this true? I certainly have not gotten that impression from the private
presentation made by John C. or the discussions on the ACE fora.

The only options I've seen for NNTP users is RSS or email. Have you seen
anything other than that?

I would think that the aspects of information from those areas should be discussed there, Murray, but, in general, yes, I think the folks dealing with the issue have been given a lot to consider, as well as some thoughts for ways to work with it.

There will be a public preview for people to help kick tires, but things won't be set up for awhile yet, so everyone can keep breathing for now.

There were some suggestions... too soon to know what will pan out, and the folks there and then didn't have time to explore. But I was seeing light bulbs going off over people's heads. Need to give them a bit of time to sort through ideas first tho.

The Encore forum seems to have turned off cookies

I have to log in every time I visit, and every click pops up a message asking if I want to display secure and non-secure items

As Kath said... Chaos

Sigh... this time it was supposed to be a different team of programmers doing the switch... if so, they were clearly taught by the previous team
