I concur with ivan,

I find a forum a much better medium that an IRC chat. First of, the timing.
Unless we do it somewhere around 2 AM in the morning, people will have
something else to do at 9 PM on a wednesday evening, like wachting football,
evening classes, watch TV with the misses of the house, ...

A forum OTOH gives me the *freedom* to join whatever topic at a more
convenient time, while benefitting from the history of the discussion in the
previous forum postings.

By having members-only and non-members/closed boards on the forum, we can
read what the non-members would like while maintaining the privacy (if
needed) of closed boards for discussing the new topics.
Jean would not be tied to his computer every weekend, and would also have a
better view on what topics to be discussed, instead of mainly 'the events'

This doesn't mean that the bi-weekly IRC meeting should be terminated, but
at least those not familiar with RC (many new users are from the MSN
generation) or those just logged in on the chat channel would have an
extra medium to interact with us.

I think that the next IRC meeting should have the topic 'a forum setup or
not' set as an agenda point.
Being an admin on the Dutch PClinuxOS forum, I will gladly take the role of
a mod if one is needed.
