online message boards
From Marge on 22 Feb '99
Have a ? about the 'online message boards'

on a lot of sites, I seen them with maybe one message a month posted.
to me, that's a real turn-off.

I am running two separate versions of Jim's SVlist...one to update
visitors about changes to the page, the other as a freestanding mailing
list...where was Onelist when I needed it.

the mail list gets a fair amount of traffic, and I think if I didn't
have THAT, starting a discussion list on the page might have worked
well, after all, I visit THIS place every day to pick your brains.

But I seriously wonder if adding an online msg. board would draw
people where the 'other stuff' is available?

and I think a 'dead' message board is a REAL bad advertisement for a
site.

input from those with more experience to share?
