Thanks for the offer and I can clearly see there is a very robust set of 
positions regarding Forums usage. I know we had this conversation before 
and felt at the time the Maillist suited the assemblage of current 
Ubuntu UK Team members. However in the strictest sense of any community 
project there is absolutely nothing stopping you or anyone simply 
creating the forums and letting people know they are avialable to use. I 
realise that people dont want to split the community but the community 
is at its best when it self organises and to that end opportunities 
cannot really be defined or restricted by technical demerits or 
specifications. So   nothing stops the forums being created and we can 
add them to the Wiki so people know they are there. If they are 
succesful im sure they will thrive and I am sure it will widen to 
audience of potential UK Members. It will be a shame though that as a 
result of this that some efforts may become duplicated and some 
communication will be missed.

My personal preferences are to use the Mailing list, however if a Forum 
exists I will make sure I drop in and keep an eye on it and let people 
know about the mailing list and the archvies and the thriving 
communication we have here as well as the IRC Channels.

Can I assume this has been the consensus of the group ?

And So say all of us ?[1]
