Dear GenStatters,

Over the last 6 months, we have been setting up web-based discussion forums for GenStat and ASReml, on the VSN website.

The GenStat forum has been designed to act as an exact shadow/copy of the email list, so that you can choose how you want to post and read the messages. Since the end of March the web forum has been recording the messages emailed to the list automatically, and entering them into their matching threads on the web site.

We are now ready to go live so that, from today, you can also also answer a post on the web forum and have it sent at the same time to the email list - or open a new topic and have that mailed out too. The only minor inconvenience is that we've been unable to get the sender's web-system identity recorded in the From field on the list (so you will see that some of our own recent messages have come from "forum"). However, you can add your name to the topic title.

You can view the forum by going to http://www.vsni.co.uk/forum/ and selecting GenStat in the Software category. To post messages you will need to register by:

Once you are in the forum, click on 'Register', then...

1. Agree to the Terms
2. Enter your own unique username, password and e-mail. Enter the letters / numbers from the image.
3. You can leave the rest of the form, unless you specifically want to change something.
4. Click submit
5. Log-in with the unique username and password.
6. Go into the Software > GenStat forum
7. Click on 'new topic' and submit your new topic

So you now have the choice of using the existing email forum, or its web-based partner. You can also request digests from all the various forums to be sent to you - click on the 'Digests' link in the forum index. I look forward to some interesting discussions...

Kind regards,

Ian (Forum Administrator)
