There is a discussion going on regarding the move of the FOAM Forum from its current address to the CFD-Online web site. I hope you all know about CFD-Online ( and I was wondering if people visiting this forum have a preference. In my opinion, the move will expose the forum to a larger community and this can only be beneficial, both in terms of the quality of answers and the number of FOAM users.

Any comments are appreciated,

I think it is a good idea in terms of exposing the forum to a larger community, but unfortunately I will not be able to follow this forum with my mail program anymore.

Maybe, you can province Jonas Larsson from CFD-Online to use some program which is able to provide some mail-handling (like a maillist). I mean it would be much easier and faster for everybody to make the discussions with a mail user agent than over some kind of web-interface.
Right now, I am not using OpenFoam active, but I try to convince my department to use it. Keeping track on the discussions is pretty easy with my mail user agent; though I miss the ability to response with my mail program.

So I will miss to follow the discussions with my MUA when this forum moves to CFD-Online.

If the OpenFOAM discussion moves to CFD-online, it will probably not be using the current forum software employed by CFD-online. Although I can't guarantee anything, it is highly likely that whatever the new format is, it will support mailing list style distribution of forum posts.

I would believe that the forum slot would place FOAM in the main CFD spotlight - so to speak. It seems to be a very well-run site with a very wide readership.

Since I was the one who raised the last request on cfd-online & having only recently signed up to this forum, I do apologise if I have created any conflicts. I just felt that it would be appropriate for OpenFOAM to get the coverage it deserves. I believe that it would result in a potentially much larger readership.

FOAM is an absolutely excellent tool that deserves to do well.
