I've had a few people contact me to ask about where they might post announcements. I know we've talked about something like this in the past, but here are a few ideas:
1. A general area where people could post announcements. We could have a checkbox on sign up that asks people whether they want to subscribe by email
2. A craigslist type bulletin board -- perhaps done through a group, but is access more through the forum interface than through a group interface
3. A general group for announcements.
What do you all think? I think that, generally, it should be an easy to use space that allows opt-in subscriptions.
