        Dear Apricots, please don't discard this solution. I think it's very, very important.

        Discussion fora are no substitute for listservs. They serve different functions. If you ask a user to open a browser, navigate, and sign-in every time they want to post a question/comment, it's not going to happen. Even less-so is the chance of another user reading and answering /responding to it.

        Consider this: even the best email campaigns have open rates of only 32% and click-rates of 10% or less. Somewhere in-between the openers and the clickers are the emailers. And, there's lots and lots of them. Outlook is already open and on your desktop. Insert address and go.

        Of course, if your site doesn't lend itself to this kind of solution, you would simply not opt for it and leave just a discussion forum.

        Cheers!

          What will happen when a free membership comes to renewal? If they renew on their own, do they go back into Active status or to Pending? It seems to me that someone could string a lot of free trials along that way. It would be great if you Apricots came up with a trial option of n days that could be checked for any membership level. Thanks Apricots!
