Hi Marc,

Well, then, would both Drew and Sophie be against having the forums passing through the main site and the "Forums" page with the forums being themed in such a way that they appear to belong as a "LibreOffice" site.
Where in my mail did you read that? I have absolutely nothing against forum passing through LibreOffice. Really, I don't care, I won't be able to join them anyway!

This way, the forums would still have their independence, the different admins will still be the same. The only difference is that the forums could cooperate and theme to blend into the site.
I think that you're speaking about the existing forums and the FR one. To be clear, and as already said, they are doing what they want :-) They don't want to join LibO but they will support it and they are already on the FR list and using LibO for that. As this is a very very important resource for the Francophone users (I don't remember exactly, but they are near a hundred to manage it) , it will be listed on the FR site. I didn't decide it, I'm not a member of the forum, I'm for nothing in all this here, I was only informing about the FR community decision.

This would make it easier to community build as most users would eventually believe that their forum has equal weight on the site. It would give everyone a sense of belonging.

We could then setup a official forum for official announcements and whatever would not be covered under the international language forum.

Do you think this would be acceptable?
Marc, I've nothing to say concerning community building.

The two mails about forums I've sent was:
- [information] the existing FR forum will be listed on the FR site.
- [reflexion proposal for those who will take care] make the forums also a resource for the project. And that will be the end of my participation to this discussion, I've nothing more to bring to it.

Kind regards
