Sybase NNTP forums - End Of Life (EOL)

The NNTP forums from Sybase - forums.sybase.com - will be closing down to new postings on March 28, 2013.

After more than 10 years of service, it is time for SAP and Sybase to close down the NNTP forums. These forums have served as an important communication medium between you, our valuable customers, and us for a long time. Like all technologies, however, the NNTP protocol is now better served by other newer protocols and systems. So, with the migration to SAP, we have decided to close down the NNTP server (forums.sybase.com).

All the posts in these forums will be copied and stored in an archive at http://nntp-archive.sybase.com.

All new questions should be directed to the appropriate forum at the SAP Community Network (SCN), found at http://scn.sap.com. Over the next few days our employees and members of TeamSybase will be posting product specific URL's to Developer Centers and other areas in SCN. If you would like to get started immediately, go to http://scn.sap.com and search for your product in the search box (upper right corner) to find your specific developer center.

All of us here at Sybase, TeamSybase, and SAP would like to thank all of you for your valuable contributions, questions, and insights. We look forward to hearing from you at our new home on SCN!

I have yet to find a way in which a web forum is superior to NNTP.
Speed, searchability, ease of skimming, finding new posts; all are
easier in NNTP.

May I heartily endorse your observation. I personally find the web forum
unusable. Until or unless something comes along with the ease and
convenience of (say) Thunderbird I shall be staying away.

David,

do you also miss these points in the SQL Anyhwere Forum Jason has
pointed to?

I'm asking as I find it ways easier to search in this forum than in the
NNTP groups (I'm using Thuinderbird for that), and linking to an
existing question/answer is *lots* easier, too.

I would agree that finding "new posts" is not generally "easier" in the
forum as they might come in as new questions, new answers, new comments
(possibly on comments), and that is more difficult to oversee as in a
news reader - however, it does work good enough for me.

What I surely prefer are the facilities to format text and to include
images... and IMHO using the forum makes much more fun. Call me a victim
of gamification:)



Just my 2 cents

Volker
