Broken link

On the "Contact CPDL" page, the link "CPDL Newsletter" is broken. User:Claude_T —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Claude T (talkcontribs) on 15:55, 24 October 2007.

Thanks for that, Claude. I've commented out the link from the page. --Bobnotts talk 12:36, 24 October 2007 (PDT)

Old Bulletin board

Should we consider the local "Old Bulletin board" deprecated? In my view, it could well be kept on a par with the external forums, especially because there are people who don't like the idea of having to create two different accounts and would feel more comfortable having a place here on the Wiki where to post their questions. What do others think? —Carlos Email.gif 22:52, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Good point about separate logins. I thing we should indicate that use of the new forum is preferred and most of the recent discussion is taking place there, but use of the old forums is still available for users who prefer not to have to create a new login. I don't want people to think they are visiting a ghost town when they go to the old forums. --Vaarky 03:57, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

emails?

The title of this page is somewhat misleading. If I were new to CPDL I would expect to find on this page a list of emails: one for the administration, one for copyright issues, one for technical issues, perhaps one for advertisement offers and so on. Isn't it about time to add such emails to the page? —Carlos Email.gif 16:23, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I think it's good to publish that information. However, to prevent screen-scraping spambots, can we put images that show the addresses instead of writing the addresses directly? --Vaarky 05:48, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Yes, and I second Vaarky's suggestion about using images. -- Chucktalk Giffen 11:15, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

I think this needs further thought, so please do not proceed yet. For example, I do not want to reproduce here the Copyright issues address, but rather link to a page that has the information--users should see the page with instructions, not just the e-mail address. Likewise, since we have a page listing admins, so this page should link there rather than reproducing it here. I think the structure should be to figure out where that information authoritatively lives, then link there from here, rather than reproducing images here. I agree that this should be a useful Directory Assistance type page but with links instead of the specific address in some cases. --Vaarky 09:36, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
