Re: New home for list needed.
it was me who said that.
i thought apug could host an independent subforum or just host the
archives and mailing list software.
but you're right, they already have a their own forums on the topic and
"no digital talk" at all is definitely no good option.
i thought maybe someone here could have close relations to apug and they
could do it for charity or for a compensation of the cost.

I forget who mentioned Apug, but in my opinion, that's not a viable
option. There is an alternative process forum on Apug, but Apug is
strongly against discussion of digital negatives or any digital aspect
of photography whatever, and set up hybridphoto, a sister site, for
discussion of such matters. This results in a sort of split
personality for alternative process folks, and the result hasn't been
satisfactory, at least in my opinion; neither place is really a
comfortable home for us.

Yes, I think so. However there are rather strong differences in
opinion, so the voting process that has been proposed on another
thread is a very good idea.

I agree- malin's site would be an excellent site to have the list- it
will draw more people there.

The "institution of higher learning" that you mention does not seem
to have any interest to host our list now that Gordon is not working
there any more. They probably don't even know or care what it's all
about. The list actually depended on the goodwill and hard work of
Gordon, that's all.
I'd much prefer that alt-photo be sited on a server such as Malin's
or other on this thread that have offered their servers. People that
are involved in alt photo and who really care about the well-being
and future of the list.
