This would serve both worlds. Messages would be brought to the attention of the general audience and, in the separate section, be kept alive for the afficianados. 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?
