Does any one know what's wrong with BSD Forums?
I'm having a hard time to find any information in
archives of mailing lists. If you use the search
function, all you get is links to the entire list
of all messages of one month, even when you click on
the link of a specific message it just donwloads the entire
list of the full month again...
"Great help" that is...
I do wish there would be a forum for questions and
discussions, as that would be much much handyer and
easier to use than these clumsy mailing lists.
Personally I feel mailing lists for discussions and
answering questions a thing of the past and way
inferior to a threaded online forum or a news group.
Kind of surprising there is no forum for such a cool
thing such as OpenBSD.
There is one forum for OpenBSD, at www.bsdforums.org.
However, it seems something is very wrong there.
I registered there (which is required to post a question)
over 2 months ago. After that I tried to post and got a
message saying, I need to wait to get aproved by an admin
before I can post...
After 1 month of waiting, I tried again, same result. Then
I sent an email to
asking what is wrong, why my registration is still
not approved after waiting 4 weeks.
Last week I sent another email, this time to
asking again, why my registration is not beeing processed
Still. No anser.
It seems www.bsdforums.org is not accepting new members,
although they have stickies in their forums, asking people
to register and participate in their forums... *barf!*
Or is it perhaps my email address markschmid_(_at_)_gmx_(_dot_)_ch which gets
filtered by some stupid spam filter of bsdforums.org
which just doesn't like gmx?
Does anyone know where one can turn for help and discussions
on OpenBSD if one prefers using a forum instead of emails?
