Also, if no one minds I would like to start a new thread on the discuss
list for this, the current one is a bit long in the tooth - but before I
do would like to do two things:

One - a quick run over the the OO.o user services admin board to make a
proposal to them, which I think they will be ok with and would like to
be sure before I offer it as a compromise.

Is this sentence missing a part? I don't fully understand it. What
proposal do you want to make? The OOo forum is already
stating that's a resource for both OOo a well as LO users. But that is
one of the * parts that are hosted at Oracle
in Hamburg IIRC, so future of the server is not clear. It might move
to OSUOSL that is running other parts of the OOo infrastructure.

A plan?

Sure - and to be clear about it:

* I have a problem with flagging a forum that uses ads as "official"
* I don't have a problem with listing it with the additional remark
"makes use of ads" or similar.
* I have a problem with listing the "ads-forum" when the other
existing ones are not listed at the same place.

So I'd very much prefer this:
* Having the forum that is now as the
"official" one - but that of course depends son the future of the
OOo-Project and its infrastructure.
* Listing other forums in two categories: Those with adds, and those
that are ads-free And that list should be pretty complete as to our
best knowledge. i.e. (uses ads) (ads-free), (ads-free), ...

But I don't like the term "official" - as main communication medium is
the mailinglists, the forums are completely independent, mostly driven
and frequented by users who aren't necessarily involved with the
actual development of LibreOffice (that happens on the mailinglists)

And I still dislike that there are so many forums, even more so when
all are using the same forum-software. What is the difference in
having 5 or more different phpBB forums? That just splits the
supporters (those with knowledge to answer posts) into 5 or more

But I fully agree to let it rest a little
