    Yup. Forums are a dying medium. Which sucks 'cause IMO they're much better than discord.

    They've been slowly dying for awhile now unfortunately. This just probably only hastens the process

    It's not going to stop me from continuing to check the forums that I'm on/still a member of though

    Forums are too passive and slow in a "I want it all, I want it now" world.

    Social media ruined everyone's tolerance for delayed gratification.

    Hey, spread that hate around. There's also Twitter, Instagram, Reddit.

    I don't even have any social media accounts because of how much I hate them.

    Unless Discord counts somehow. If so then that's the only one I have.

    Yes forums are indeed a much more friendlier place to conversate with peeps; discord and other formats are loud, too busy and even down-right-obnoxious!!!! Easier to keep track of what people are saying rather 1,000 pop ups coming up can’t even keep up!!!!
