The question has engaged our community since its inception. There are some who are frustrated with the single thread format and others who would prefer to stay with what we have. There are others still who think that a mixture of a current thread married to some satellites is also good.
Despite spending cash on forum software, the mods would be happier to keep the blog format. There is a feeling that moderation will become much more difficult with several threads, although the counter to that is that the registration system necessary to operate a forum would strip away layers of anonymity and by extension more thoughtful and respectful contributions?
Who knows. This mod’s preference is for a hosted WordPress.org installation with more bells and whistles and an extra OT thread, so I will be voting “NO”
Comments welcome. The poll will close at 1700 on Friday 31 May.
