We've been using Discourse <> for group
discussions for the past year and a half here at Monterey Cohousing. It has
options for people who want push notifications via email The default is to
use it more like a forum, which is something can do as well. We
started with our own stand-alone instance and now we have it integrated
with Gather <> for single sign-on.

We had been using Yahoo Groups, but when Yahoo announced they were ending
support for the web interface we could see the writing on the wall and
looked for a suitable replacement.

I like the motto they have for Discourse - "A place for civilized
conversations." That is what cohousing-l has been and I thank Fred Olson
for keeping it civilized.
