is there a better grails forum that this?

nutmix
Hi, we love grails, but this forum has to serious issues:
  1. it uses google groups, which is essentially a mailing list.  I don't want to subscribe to a mailing list to make a post.  This was acceptable in the early 90's, but this is 2020!
  2. There are very few posts.

Is there a more active forum using a proper forum server, other than stackoverflow?

Hey,

The Slack space[1] is lively. If you wish to post one-off questions, then SO is your best best IMHO.

Cheers,

Mihai.

I am sorry that you don’t think the mailing list is acceptable.  It
isn’t widely used any longer but I think we should leave it here for
now.

That is correct.  Several years ago we moved a lot of our primary
support traffic to StackOverflow.  I encourage folks to use
StackOverflow for technical questions that have a specific answer and
aren’t likely to require much conversation.  For items that are more
likely to require conversation and/or don’t have a specific technical
answer, I encourage folks to use our Slack channel or this mailing list.
  Slack is much more active than the mailing list

StackOverflow and our Slack channel are where 95% of the traffic exists.
  I encourage to you use either or both of those.

Best of luck!
