The OpenOffice.org Users' Community Site

Filed under
News

A small group is discussing the formation of "The OpenOffice.org Users' Community" website along the lines of The Star Office Users' Portal. The site will include a forum and other services. The idea for the project emerged out of a very long thread discussing ways of dealing with some shortcomings of the present, main, English forum for OOo users.

The discussion is open to anyone willing to join. As well as the StarOffice users' portal, The Ubuntu Community looks like another good model. We do, I think, want our own "look". There is a blog spot which will contain reports on an irregular basis from the private discussions taking place.

The most important point. The public discussion is on another OOo support forum. If you want to join the discussion, please do so. If you have something, such as web design abilities, to contribute, please don't hold back.
