    3. I diagree. When you read you emails you need to click from one to the next and when you visit My Alerts you do exactly the same thing...I have 8 new posts on boards in My Alerts so far today. I start at the top...read one, click the back button in my browser and then click the next and so on.

    3. Hi Joan Mailing lists were not always posted via internet online. They began doing that by making "gatewayed" archives at Rootsweb back in the 90's For instance the Caribbean Gen List was an old style mailing list and discussions were private until a gateway was created with an older Usenet group Soc.Gen.WestIndies whereupon various crawlers sucked up the threads and repackaged them for their own purposes in all sorts of web locations. Groups IOs offers that viewing in real time which is nice but wide openness is not always trouble free for the discussion of difficult or controversial subjects (common in the Colonial Caribbean for instance) It is what it is.....

    3. Joan, I know you prefer the boards over the lists. I guess I'm the opposite. There's a feeling of connection when using the mailing lists. On the boards, especially when discussing a problem poster, it feels like the world (and the problem poster) is looking over our shoulders. It feels a bit more private when discussing things via email.

    3. I am certainly no expert in using Boards, but it seems to me that on Groups.io you can use a list in the same way you might use a board. You can go online and read and post messages there. If you choose to.

    3. I know Joan was asking a rhetorical question, but the answer is June 2019 is the last time anyone posted to the Board Admins mailing list. There is a message board for Board Admins, which is more active than the mailing list of the same topic. You'll find it at https://www.ancestry.com.au/boards/topics.rw.admin.badmin/mb.ashx Wendy On Sun, Feb 23, 2020 at 4:05 PM Joan Young via LISTOWNERS < listowners@rootsweb.com> wrote: > And when was the last time ANYONE ever posted to the boards admins list on > RootsWeb?

    3. And when was the last time ANYONE ever posted to the boards admins list on RootsWeb? Much better to use the admins board.

    3. As far as I know the message boards will still be available and nothing needs to be done regarding the boards. This mailing list will be shut down.
