D - Too much Journal talk on the group

Hopefully after Monday's post - a Call For Papers - people will stop needing
to post stuff on this group and will just send it off to the journal itself
(which will make it all easier to manage from the journal's editing
perspective).

If not, then maybe Jan and Walter will spawn another group. Other than in
the medium term, however, I cannot see a point in having a newsgroup, since
what would be the point of a magazine format ??

 I would actually like it if the stuff purely about the D Journal website

 moved to another newsgroup.

 I feel it's starting to clutter up the NG.  This one is about the D
 *Language*.   ;)

 Anyone?  Maybe it'll just die down by itself.  But I want it to thrive,

 elsewhere.  Maybe I'm wrong.

But how about inline forums on each article page?

 "inline" ??

I guess he meant such a feature when a "forum" is created for each article, allowing readers to discuss this concrete article and related things. You can see these on many sites. Not sure if "inline" is the correct term, but I like it. =)

Sorry, force of habit (been programming since 7 so it's like a second
language to me).

I simply mean that you don't put a link to the forum at the end of the
article (although that would look neater). But I guess you could interpret
that has putting the entire thread's content there, which wouldn't be a good
thing either.
