Dear VA Smalltalkers,
Would you think about establishing a classical mailing list instead of (or in parallel to) the forum? That way you'll be closer to the Smalltalk community, which has in big majority the mailing lists. Mailing lists are better for cross-Smalltalk and cross project cooperation, because it is much easier to track many lists than many such forums. And because we'd really like the VA Smalltalk to be closer to the rest of Smalltalk community, a mailing list would be the first step.
Also, with a mailing list you can add VA Smalltalk to Nabble http://n4.nabble.com/Smalltalk-f1294792.html, where all Smalltalk lists are aggregated.
