While we expect the bulk of VTK-related discussion to transition to
Discourse fairly rapidly in the near term, the current
[hidden email] and [hidden email] mailing lists will remain
active until at least the middle of 2019, and the archives from these
lists will remain available after that.
Should we post new topics on both the mailing list and the forum to get
maximum views? I am unsure if I should just post a new question on the forum
and trust that it will get the views I need. It could get messy with some
reply's coming on the mailing list and some on the forum if I post to both.
Just looking for a little guidance for when my next VTK question comes up.

It should be feasible to create topics by email, but please use the web interface as much as possible. Maybe it takes 5-10s for you to open a web browser, but think about the precious seconds that you save for hundreds of readers by making your post better formatted, easier to read, posted in the right category with the right keywords. The web interface also gives live preview, checks for similar posts, allows you to @mention other users, etc.
