It is great to have a modern web forum interface with posting ability for the Statalist. Great!

Dear All,

I mentioned a week or so ago that I was setting up a Nabble2
( archive/mirror of Statalist.

The archive has been up and running now for a week or so and for the
most part has been doing a good job at threading messages, and hasn't
(as far as I can tell) resulted in any excess spam to the list (at least
none thats made it through the Statalist servers spam filtering).

You can view and search the archive at

At present this is configured as read-only so it simply mirrors the
messages sent to the Statalist server. There is however the ability to set it up so that users with a registered account at Nabble2 can use the
interface to post to the list.

I think opening up the Nabble2 Statalist archive to allow users to post would be of great use to those who receive Statalist digest as it would
allow them to post in-context with a given thread.  It would also be
useful for those who subscribe and like reading/posting when they are
unable to access their normal email account (although admittedly this
increasingly rare these days). If anyone has an opinion (either for or against) doing this please say so and we can discuss whether this should be done (personally I'm happy to leave it as it is as I subscribe to the
main list and get messages individually).

For more on Nabble2 features please refer to their Help/FAQ at
