> As kind of an experiment, I've set up three forums on the Inkscape
> SourceForge site for users:
>    * Art Gallery  
>    * Installation Help  
>    * Tips and Tricks
>    Go to http://sf.net/projects/inkscape/ and click on Forums
> The idea is to provide a space for users to share info about using
> Inkscape more persistantly than is possible with the mailing lists.  It
> also provides a quick way for users that may not wish to join a mailing
> list to be able to participate.  Then when they want to get really
> involved they can come join the rest of the hard core users here at
> inkscape-user at .  :-)
> We haven't had forums active in the past, because for development
> discussion we felt that mailing lists were more convenient.  However,
> forums sometimes can be more convenient for users, so I figure it's
> worth trying out and see if people get some use out of them.
> Also (and here's the secrete ulterior motive), we've been tracking the
> way stats are done on SourceForge for a while now (see the Status page).
> Inkscape is actually more active than several projects in the top ten,
> and just based off of development work, downloads, and pageviews we've
> already climbed up to the 20-30 range.  In looking at the projects and
> how SF calculates stats, it looks like weekly forum posts are the key to
> getting into the top ten.
> So here's an excellent way for users to help Inkscape.  Post to the
> user forums actively, and you can make Inkscape achieve the top ten!
