SignWriting List
January 2, 2011

Yes, I believe that is the reality, Shane.  I have learned that myself...

There are only 190 List members here on the SW List anyway...so any new Web Forums will be small in the beginning...it will take years for it to grow...but I will be glad to provide links on our web sites to the new Forum and in time it will grow...

These days, for me anyway, there seems to be too many options...it scatters all of us in so many directions... That is why I have not used Facebook and Twitter and other online communities much - I have such a heavy workload that it seems like too much at times...

So I personally will be focusing on the managing this SignWriting ListServe and making this List the best List we can make it - as well as being open to all new ideas and new forums -

Many thanks to all of you, for your partnership -

Val ;-)

Yes, I know that they can always read them later but later.... there are more postings to go through and this is discouraging. People are different. Some prefer e-mails, some other prefer web forums. So, I don't agree with Shane.

We used to have one of our List Archives on Yahoo egroups, and they forced readers into seeing full page ads before they could read the message they were searching for, and some of those ads were sexually-explicit and I was concerned that an educational group like our SignWriting List might have children with teachers accessing the Archives, and I did not want those ads being thrown at our users, so Bill Reese helped move our second Archives over to LinguistList.org (our Archive 3) ...which was a fortuitous move -
