Perhaps a special notation could be attached to messages in the regular forum indicating that they also appear in the separate section. Whether the technology would support such a thing I have no idea.


Dan, as far as I know, the forum software wouldn't support that kind of thing exactly. But it would support a sort of workaround: It would be possible to start a thread in this forum, then <i>move</i> it to another forum in such a way that there would still be a clickable link in this forum showing the thread title and its new location. Would something like that work, do you think? Create a wine-making forum and use it to carry on extended conversations after they've had their start here?

Howie and others, what do you think? This would provide a separate forum for winemaking and viticulture while keeping thread titles alive on the regular forum. Clicking the titles would access the full thread in the separate section. It sounds pretty good. The general audience would see the titles of threads and could easily pursue them. That would go a long way toward mitigating the problem of isolating winemaking/viticulture from the rest of the forum.
