Please, no. This would split the community into newsgroup-readers and 
forum-readers. Which would not be good.

A better interface to the newsgroup would be good though.

And the C++ community is splittet into million different groups of readers, as there are so many forums. How bad is that?

C++ isn't a new language whose features still haven't been set in stone. At this stage of its life I think separate groups would be pretty bad for the language/community. Chris

You can use any newsreader you want. Just find one you like. The only thing I might eventually suggest is a developer mailing list in addition to this site. But that doesn't need to happen until the popularity of the languages becomes such that this newsgroup becomes more commonly used for other things, like newbie questions. Sean

Doesn't seem to happen to me (using mozilla), all messages (even yours) appear in correct categorical order. However I keep all the messages ever sent (except the cancelled ones of course) on my hard drive. -- -Anderson: http://badmama.com.au/~anderson/

I think that might be your newsreader. I use OE at the moment, and the reply posts are just as you want , a sub item. Phill

This newsgroup will probably split into a couple of categories. But the mailing list idea is not too workable these days - mailing list operators frequently get incorrectly blacklisted as spammers.

Hi, please no. Newsgroups are fast & easy to use. I don't want to check out zillions of Web-Forums I can't remember etc. Web-Forums are one of the worst ideas... we have Newsgroups since decades for this. Robert

This newsgroup is looks and feels simialar to forums I've used in the past so, why do we need it, if we use something that works and is close enough.
