Dear Jaldhar ji,

Many thanks for the steps being taken to overhaul the Advaita list.  One
long felt need for posters is the ability to post images like snapshots /
scanned images of digitized text pages of Bhashya/any other document etc.
This is possible in all other groups like the Bharatiya Vidwat Parishad
which runs on google groups.  This facility avoids the age old method of
resorting to uploading the image somewhere else and providing the URL in
our posts, where the reader has to go there and download to view the
content.  In BVP, for example, one can post an image as part of his post.
This has a convenience that is beyond any explanation.

The other facility that you can think of including is the facility of
attachments.  This is a very useful facility which other groups, even the
Yahoo groups Advaitin enables.

The 'size' of posts also could be increased.

The above could be considered as they are all most user-friendly

warm regards
