Re: [Newbies] Grafoscopio and the Data Week: Critical code+data literacy practices and pocket infrastructures from/for the Global South
I like the idea of forums. Always have. Did the Manjaro community have trouble with spam? How is it moderated? Email lists seem to be less vulnerable to spam, although we have received some in the past. Forums seem to need constant moderation to ensure they are not invaded by spam. I seem to remember there was a forum way back when. There is a forum interface to the mailing list already: http://forum.world.st/Squeak-Beginners-f107673.html. What do you think Discourse would add to the community over what we have already?

For the automatic traffic there's (spam) filters in your mail
Please feel free move over, we are not so many in our community
that separate lists are needed.

I'm just in the beginners list (when I subscribed I was a
beginner and I never thought of myself as a developer). I have
seen the dev list, but there is a lot of automatic mail send by
commit activity. I'm not sure if I want such traffic in my mail
Anyway, having proper feedback places is important and I wonder
if some kind of middle place between developers and beginners is
needed. In the Pharo case, the users list has pretty good
activity without details about commits. Maybe beginners is
misleading and we need a users list or setup something like
discourse to improve communication. In the Manjaro case, it
has worked pretty well (but, of course, infrastructure by
itself is not a warranty).
