Re: [greenyes] Recycling Discussion Format


Aloha again,

"a. We don't have to worry about removing bad email addresses. They remove
themselves."

In the Infopop control panel we have the following option:

'Verify User Email Address?
For tighter security, you may want to require that your registered users
have valid email addresses. This is accomplished by getting the user to
click on a confirmation link emailed to them.'

And only people who want to participate will.

"Fewer viruses spread because we strip all html and attachments."

The Infopop control panel lets you decide whether or not you want to allow
html and attachments.

"The message gets across without flashy or inappropriate ads."

If you look at the biodiesel discussion forum I listed you will see there
are no ads, no flash, unless of course, you want to allow that. It can
be as plain or flashy as you want it to be.

"People who pay by the minute for internet aren't subjected to huge attachments
and wasteful html."

As listed above this is controlled by the site administrator. And once
the parameters are set there's no more management of that function.

"This is an affordable solution for GRRN."

If you don't want to spend any money, than you are right, but as I said
before I am willing to cover some of the cost, and it's really not that
expensive (I guess that's relative though).

"Previous attempts at a bulletin board community failed.
Our current format brings the information directly to
the community in your mailbox."

Would you be interested in describing what you mean by "failed"? Once a
member of an Infopop forum sets email notifications, the info is also brought
directly to your mailbox.

I am happy to answer more questions, but if you don't want to change the
system, I understand. I would just like to see a more comprehensive format
for sharing info.

Thanks for listening,
