There is already a fedoraforum which I don't use at all because
I despise forums because they are nothing like as useful as mailing lists.
I am signed up for a number of, both professional and personal. I
never check them. If the eMail when a reply is off or not functioning,
I never know when someone has replied. I basically only ask questions,
but never look to see if I can answer a question because they
are so annoying.
With my numerous mailing lists, I can see when something is newly
posted very easily. And answer if I can help. It also build
a sense of community the forums do not have. I start to recognize
names and sometimes chat off line.
The forums only work if you only subscribe to ONE forum and make
it your browser's home page.
The ONLY benefit to a forum is that it cuts down on the hate
posts from trolls. But, this mailing list handles that quite
nicely, so not an issue.
Younger generation? Since when does a Linux user use a tablet
to post a question? Be nice if Fedora ran on tablets but it
doesn't unless you are a YUGE super user.
A forum is a REALLY bad idea. Usenet is even better, although
you have to work to get your kill file adjusted for each
group due to the hate trolls.
