Yeah, list traffic is nice because it's highly visible (in subscribers' inboxes). But if we want the list to work effectively as a mechanism of communication it has to either be mirrored somehow with this board or read-only.

Some rambling ideas:

1. read-only list: The only things that reach the list are posts from selected BB forums. No one can email the list directly, and all replies to list threads must be made on the BB.

2. BB thread-only list: The only things that start threads on the list are BB posts which get forwarded by the BB software (selected fora). People can respond to threads on the list by email, and we write some scripts on the UW system that intercept the email, check that it's on a thread, and repost it to the BB, thus ensuring that BB and mailing list stay in sync. Email latency may be a bit annoying here *shrug*. This way, people can stay mostly off of the BB if they want. However, list-only people won't have full voice on the list, since they won't be able to post new topics by email.

3. mailing list forum: Posts to a certain forum get mirrored both ways against the mailing list. We'd have to write our own software here, as in #2. Handling threads/topics would be a mess. Ugh.

4. full mirroring: Every post to the list gets mirrored to the BB (thread responses by email go to the proper forum, new topics started over email get shoved into a general forum :( ). Does nothing to reduce noise factor.

5. user-selected BB notifications: This option includes any combination of BB posting summaries, digests, or individual emails that contain single BB posts. A user can select what forums or threads they want notification on, and get email. This mechanism has nothing to do with the actual climbers@ mailing list, it's email sent to individuals. Users can't respond to email notifications, but can go to the BB and post.

Holy crap, that's a lot of thinking out loud...

I like a combination of these ideas.

Here's a proposal. We forward posts in a few fora (just Trip Planning and Club Events) to the mailing list. People can respond to these by email and see their replies mirrored on the BB, too. Any extra-thread posts to the mailing list stay just on the mailing list. I guess we can just hope that people use the BB for most of their discussion. Then BB folks can use the notification stuff if they want. It would be cool to have some custom email notifications, like a digest of a forum's/thread's traffic, or a daily topic summary which lists every thread that was posted to on a given day, all with links back to the BB.

Of course, we could do away with the mailing list entirely and move everyone to the BB, where they are subscribed by default to receive Trip Planning and Club Events notifications. To reply, they must use the BB, but the "push" factor of email is still present. A bit less convenient (I hate read-only email), but reduces redundancy.

Dammit, I'll shut up now.
