Hi John,

Thanks for your input! I truly hope this can become a good forum for all robotic enthusiasts as this is a too gorgeous field.

The main idea is to have a pool of knowledge that can allow us to construct better robots and faster. I know some stuff, you know some stuff, and we all know some stuff, but meeting once a month or once a week may not be fast enough to pass that knowledge. The forum may be the solution.

Some people have expressed their discontent with the forum, and I have to agree with them. It may take some time to get accustomed to the idea. But just give it some time, and when the forum has a good deal of information, it will be a very nice resource!

Best regards,

I like it!  I've always preferred the forum approach.  It doesn't always work well with small groups (like dprg) but it's great with larger groups because things are filtered down into categories that make it easy to only browse the things you're interested in (i.e. software, drives, electronics, etc).  I think you've wisely chosen to not limit this to a DPRG list.  There are several large robot forums like this already out on the web, but the signal to noise ratio is terrible.  Mostly kids asking how to build their first robot.  That's all fine and good, but I'd like to see a more technical forum with some of the hyper-intelligent minds from places like DPRG brought together.

I've posted, I encourage others to do the same.

I think the email list we have is just fine for 90% of the DPRG communications but I see this as a valuable resource where relevant data can be archived and more easily browsed than the current list.

Hi Group,

I went ahead and started a forum related to robotics. Have always wanted to build one and it seems like a good time to do so.

It is still a work in progress, but feel free to join and let me know your thoughts on how to improve it. Thanks!
