A place for the friends of Andron?
0

I am considering to establish a kind of virtual meeting place for the users of Andron. It’s the field of rather highly specialized typesetting in the humanities and I’d like to provide a forum dedicated to the users, where they can discuss experiences and questions, work samples and so on.

What might be the most suitable basis for such a site? Facebook? Google groups? A seperate domain?

Any thoughts welcome.

I've not heard of Andron, and Google didn't reveal many clues. I'm interested. Could you describe it a bit more, and perhaps give us a link?

Regarding a forum platform: Google Groups seems to work well for communication among relatively technical users. A Facebook group could be alright, especially for more technically naive users, but FB use tends to be seen as fairly personal and noncommercial. Another idea is a web forum, although I tend to hate the things myself. The answer probably lies in what the Andron user base already uses: you want to make a forum easy to access, with few barriers. That's more important than finding some supposedly perfect system.

Thanks a lot, John. Yes, ease of access is a point.
Maybe I should ask the users themselves directly, what they would prefer.

Andreas, whatever solution you choose, please indicate the link here. So people who like Andron but are not user (like me) can also follow it.

I begun to build a site with Adobe Business Catalyst. This solution is more expensive and would take more work to be made, but let you produce exactly what you need.

Hello again.

Today I have set up a new forum site for Andron.

It’s not perfect yet …
This is an experiment.

Contributions most welcome. See what you make of it.
