Hi anonymous (and non-anonymous) akratics!

We're ready to migrate this whole google group to a forum. Exciting! Do you have opinions on how best to do that? Here are our tentative desiderata:

1. Move all the archives so everything's in one place.
2. Set everyone up with the same email prefs (individual vs digest, etc) so there's nothing you have to actually do. Ideally you don't have to even be aware that anything changed.
3. Blow the google group away so there's no ambiguity about where the cool kids are hanging out.

I read most of the google groups posts from the web interface at, not via emails. Would it be possible to setup discourse to work as a mailing list (as well as having the normal interface, of course), and have it archived by google groups? Google groups supports that, but I don't know about discourse's ability to function as a mailing list.

Also, maybe it's just me, but I was never able to properly navigate discourse forums. The interface is somewhat confusing, though I'm not sure I can pinpoint why exactly. Maybe it's just not being used to it...
