Especially given only mercenaries will be providing "answers."

The bar's just too high for altruism to win out.

Thanks for the kind words about the forum Tina!

While there isn't much I can do about a NNTP newsgroup format, I can at
least offer up the web forum format for anyone that would like to ask (and
especially answer) any questions.

Anyone that would like to participate.... come on over! :)

Hi Tom,

I know most people posting in NNTP don't really like the web forum formats.
Personally I like *some* of them but not all. What I really don't understand
about the MS web forums is that it is almost as if they have been
intentionally designed to be difficult. From a usability, navigation, and
speed standpoint they are probably some of the worst I have ever seen. You
will see me on lots of forums across the web...but not so much the MS ones
until or unless they are improved dramatically.

Best,

Your welcome Joe its the only forum I know of that will cover fp and ew is
moderated well and the questions get answered.

(not withstanding I admin a forum elsewhere but i get no help (or contact)
from the owner so don't feel the need to work hard at something that
benefits someone else... they shall remain nameless sigh)

I do maintain my own lists for frontpage and expression web and since its a
steady family of users .... its much more comfortable I find. There is also
a specific fp genealogy one i know of and another list which is as old as
mine and another good expression web list but its google based and i find
the interface clunky ... mine are yahoo based and can be email or interface
based. For those that like lists here they are.


http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/frontpage/ (I own) has ew mvps Pat Geary,
Cheryl Wise and ex mvp James Huggins as mods plus two others Martha and
