I would like to make an announcement that the second Worldware Conference is less than a month away. See: http://www.worldwareconference.com/

First, is this appropriate for this forum? And second, what subforum would be best?

Thanks...

Definitely, I think it does not belong here. I would say either Unicode General Discussion under the context of "related topics". Either that, or the Water Cooler. It's definitely not a Forum Problem or Suggestion.

Anyone have any thoughts as to whether something like this is a "related topic" under the General Discussion forum?

Yes, I know that such an announcement does not belong in this subforum, and the purpose of my post was to determine whether such a post was appropriate for this entire discussion forum as a whole, and if so, which subforum would be most appropriate. I was thinking about the announcements subforum, but it seems that only moderators are allowed to post there.

I don't think anyone would argue that it is unrelated to Unicode. If these forums were publicly announced, I think anything that would appear in the Unicode mail-list would be appropriate to these forums, and announcements like this are definitely germane. I'm just not sure whether it is best placed in Water Cooler or General Discussion, although my instinct is towards General Discussion.

Interesting note: I seem to have an incredibly difficult time typing the word "cooler", to the point that I am even unsuccessful when trying to delete the misspelling and retyping. Anyone else have this problem? (responses should go in Water Cooler)

That's the sort of thing that goes into the general discussion forum. We've pretty much always allowed announcements of that type in the Unicode mail list: brief without heavy advertising and prices mentioned, just telling people the web page, and they can go look themselves if they're interested.
