One thing to consider about web based forums (such as this one) is that they ignore the already large crowd of players that use in-game boards, or that find in-game boards more convenient.

This leads me to ask the following sets of questions:

- How can we get AA board postings to be visible here?  Is there an 'automated post' facility in SM?  I'll have to do some investigation of this.

- How can we get postings here to be visible on AA?

- How do we manage posting permissions/logins and the like?

- What would it take to manage logins based on pfiles?  Do we even want to do this?

I already export some of the in-game boards via port 8080, and I had intended to build up an XML board interface as well (that got bogged down somewhat amidst other things.)  It might be most worthwhile to do the XML thing and add support for threaded messages before getting too involved in integration.
