Rename Forum: Author Auto-Archiving Forum

Dear Ros,

As the impact of the American Scientist September98 forum is still
growing rather than shrinking, would it be possible to rename it so as
to reflect its content and currency? I note that other Amsci Forums
have since divereged from the month-based nomenclature too.

I would like to re-name it the (American Scientist) "Author
Auto-Archiving" Forum, as that is precisely the topic on which it has
long since converged, and the one that is most timely and likely to
steer developments at the present time.

If the Forum could be aliassed to that name, the old URL could continue
to lead to it too (as many published citations have that URL), but the
Forum would be a lot more transparent and useable; people are a bit
perplexed by its generic and somewhat anachronous name at the moment!

Please let me know if this can be done.

Best wishes,
