Can someone make a simple and easy forum like jbotcan for Lojban discussion, especially to fill the roles of the current mailing lists? The mailing list is so clunky and if I want to ask a basic question like "when memorizing words why does every word have "x1, x2, x3, in the definition" I have to go through a sluggish mailing list ordeal that isn't worth the effort. It would be -so- much easier if everything was centralized on one forum and I didn't have to use my email address.

The general rule has been for this board to only be in Lojban, but I have a few things to say about that, and due to the nature of this topic, we may approach this thread as a temporary lapse into English.

Hi and welcome to jbotcan.

Your idea seems reasonable to me.

1) The mailing list is certainly over kill for trivial topics and reactive replies.
2) Lack of anonymity might put people off.

I like anonymous boards for a few reasons (elaborated by Shii here: http://wakaba.c3.cx/shii/shiichan).

jbotcan is really slow. I think this is because the Lojban community is so small, people who can speak it fairly well are not many, and many people simply might not be interested in posting or are just too busy to be regulars. It's hard to get real interesting topics going when you can barely form full sentences. This goes against my original idea, which was complete immersion. But having little to talk about, or receiving little interest in what you do say, makes it difficult.

For these reasons of slowness, I think allowing English (or whatever)-language discussion on jbotcan might be a good idea. The new main point, then, will be that the board is about Lojban and people can speak Lojban, as opposed to “people only speak Lojban”. The idea was novel but the board is pretty inactive, I think, as a result. (Don't get me wrong, there are regular people who view this board daily, judging from the site statistics, but not a lot of content due to the aforementioned reasons.)

Alternatively, I can make two boards accessible from jbotcan.org.

Let me know what you think, chaps.

If we're to have English on here, I'm firmly of the opinion that it should be safely quarantined into a separate board. We don't want this to become taken over by English, it's perhaps the best Lojban-only medium in existence.

I support making an English-allowed board and keeping this board Lojban-only. :)
