Google Groups for the Behold Forum??? - Thu, 13 Dec 2007

Google Groups might be a viable alternative to using a Forum software on my site for Behold Genealogy user discussions. There are several good reasons I see:

  1. Gives you all the features of Google Groups.
  2. If you already use Google Groups for other newsgroups, it makes it very convenient for you.
  3. Allows you to get messages via e-mail and post via e-mail.
  4. Has an RSS feed if you want it.
  5. Will be indexed and searchable by Google, so others can find out about Behold.
  6. Very little maintenance required by me.

I got the idea from Firebug, a Firefox addin that uses it quite successfully. See at: http://groups.google.com/group/firebug

So I’d like your opinion. Do you think I should use this for Behold’s User Forum, or should I stick to my own installed Forum software on my Behold website?

So if you want, feel free to go to the Google Group I quickly created at: http://groups.google.com/group/behold-genealogy and let me know what you think.
