Ticket #140 (open enhancement)

- Component: usability
- Priority: normal
We have had a few requests for a mailing list, and I agree it would be useful. We have a few options for this:
Use an existing mailing list manager.
Code our own system which allows input of an email address.
Integrate it into the forums, allowing users to subscribe/unsubscribe.
Implement forum subscriptions - subscribing to the mailing list is as simple as subscribing to the announcements forum.

I would actually be tempted to go with the last solution there - I feel this would be a handy feature to have in FluxBB anyway. Thoughts?

I've now added the forum subscriptions to the core. Now all we really need is a link for the mailing list which subscribes people to the announcements board (or informs them how the system works if they aren't logged in).
To consider: Subscriptions can either only include the topic title, or the contents too. A mailing list would be more useful with the contents too probably, so consider explaining this to users or making a custom subscription add part of the site which auto enables this.
