my only concern with alll of this is that mailing list participation does not vanish. Yes I am one of those that GREATLY prefers the mail list. One place and only one place to get the goods. I have never cared for forums personally (excep for searching through after the discussion is over).One more place to go to see what's going on eventually means I won't go there. Since i always check my email I always know whats up. as for unwanted threads (like in my case con threads since I can't afford to go to one, yet) I just archive them without reading. (Love gmail.) And yes there are problems with mail lists but there are problems with forums too. and I think we all agree a wiki discussion page replaces neither of those two.

A guild on BGG would be easy to setup, multiple threads so it's easy
to ignore what you don't like and read what you do. There'd be space
for pictures too, if that was useful.
