Thought I posted a message about this earlier, but I can't find it, so maybe my memory is playing tricks.

The CompuServe Forums List with its links to CompuServe's web forums has been a valuable aid for those who still visit CIS, as it's clearer and easier to use than their own indexes of forums, or "communities" as the buzzword now is. But since the list was last revised (the date on it is 15-May-2005), there have been some changes in the CIS forum line-up, so it would be good to have an update.

The changes include the replacement of the Mozilla/Netscape Forum with the Netscape 8 Forum, the addition of a Gadgets & Gear Forum, and maybe some others I haven't spotted yet.

If there's any interest in updating the CompuServe Forums List, I'll be glad to provide the new information, and maybe I could even manage to update the HTML myself to save others the trouble, forwarding it to whoever the right person here may be. But of course I won't bother if nobody cares.

I'm the one who prepares the file, John, and I just flat out haven't had time. I'll try to add it to the things to do this weekend.

Let me know when it is updated and I'll copy it over to forumscentral.net in case anyone is following an old link.

In case anybody is interested, here is the new Netscape forums list:
http://channels.netscape.com/forum_center/package.jsp?name=weather/pm/allforumsjj
But, I think, it does NOT include the specifically Compuserve forums such as Classic, CS2000, and Practice

So apparently AOL does not want subscribers coming in to Netscape realize that there exists or ever existed such a thing as a Compuserve online service. I suppose that makes some sense since they have at least 4 ISP services: AOL, CIS Classic, CS2000, Netscape ISP and three web portals. Unfortunately there appears to be no remaining not-inconvenient official CS web site with links to the specifically Compusersve forums :-(

Meanwhile, I've put together an updated list in the most basic HTML with links to the current URLs. If you like, I can send it to you; might save some time.
