I would agree with you, except, you guys are the design team... That means your jobs are to work with graphic design among other things. If a user is paying per kilobyte, it will be difficult to contribute graphics and artwork, not to mention visiting the wiki, and download all those images on WIP pages...

A forum would not limit them anymore than they already are.

It maybe that not everyone has access to broadband internet and that mailing list are the least common denominator for everyone. Even in the United States broadband is a luxury that not everyone has. By forcing the use of web forums you are willing to remove access to hundreds of thousands of users. Even with the forum to mailing list option you would still lose the attachments in the process.


That´s a good point Andy. Didn´t think about it :(

We have seen the same type discussions on in other list and it eventually comes down to the minimum requirements. Mailing list have the lowest requirements and allows more people to join in. It is easy to forget, when you have broadband access, that it is not world wide. Some areas have to pay by the kilobyte for access. I still remember when 14.4 was high speed access to bulletin boards. :)
