Yep, but that requires a team to be setup and to show regular
attendance and to have a clear lead - not that you aren't beginning
now, but the marcom teams activity record is still in its infancy.

So far, those aliases are managed through the board and maybe a few
founding members.

@mageia.org user aliases so far are expected for Board & Council
members and to be slowly extended to crucial roles within teams and
hopefully to all peer contributors (and note the "peer" part of it).

I'm not aware of (or don't remember about) that. If you are to use a
Web-based forum, you would gain in using http://forums.mageia.org -
but be aware that:
 - you will get a higher scrutinity there - not that it's bad, but
it's important to know;
 - you will have to manage hiatuses between your forum and your
mailing-list, some people not reading/using both.

Removed. That's more a matter of curation/moderation. The Facebook
page is public and everyone can post to it (and that's good) but could
be better animated, if we can focus someone more on this, yes (that
role is in the users/forums/ml/community teams that are not really
setup either at this time - maybe you could try to ignite that).
