[REBOL] Re: Forum Name

From: ptretter:charter at: 6-Jan-2004 10:57

Yeah I agree. I wouldn't want to fracture the community much more at this point. I do think Altme serves a great purpose. Problem is that we need a place where quick access to answers can be provided. The more scattered the mediums that attempt to gain our rebol attention the more chances that we wont get that perk that having a narrow resource pool gives us. So if anything, we probably need to have more marketing and inclusion for the Altme REBOL world instead. And at some time in the fuure its my hope that after REBOL-VIEW world has completed its task it will be accessible somehow from the REBOL world.

different communication threads each day. I think that is why the previous forum failed (combined with the number of rebolers there are).
