Should there be a forum dedicated o Elmer?
It seems to me Elmer is the easiest to use freeware Finite Element Analysis package out there. I would think it would have a decent user base.
For example, it's relatively straightforward to go from CAD to Results with only free, GUI driven tools,in Windows, including Elmer. Below see the article I wrote about it:

On the topic of creating a new forum, here's a list of quotes and links to threads on this particular topic ;)
A long time ago Peter wrote this:
And from yet another more recent thread:
Personally, I find it more convenient to use the CFD-Online forums, because I still haven't mastered the nuances of using mailing lists (very annoying to accidentally answer with the subject of a "Digest" of the mailing list, instead of the correct email subject :( been there, done that).
Then there is the occasional fact that application's own forum might not be very oriented towards CFD, which leaves a person feeling a bit like an ocean fish in a river... doomed without the salt :)
On the other hand, there is the Exa forum: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/exa/ - which is... uhm... completely empty at this point in time :(
yes, i agree that a forum is much easier to use than a mailing list and would gain more traction.
