I'm aware.Stunned, yet not surprised.
@KFGauss I don't think you're getting it, Discord, Youtube and Reddit ARE the replacements for the forum
I'm sad the Big G couldn't make one more appearance to be the one saying this.
Discord sucks, too many idiot kids
Youtube, bwha-ha-ha-ha, I got one word, Mellodias, ... bwha-ha-ha-ha
reddit, a cesspool
I'm hoping that Discord can be configured to include
BOTH a farm in the country where the idiot kids and failure-to-launch adults can spout nonsense and insult each other, ANDa Server/Channel/Whatever for the mature kids and adults.
I'm aware that much of any online freemium game's business model includes pandering to the idiots, incels, keyboard warriors, failures-to-launch, and trolls, especially if they have a credit card.
I'm hoping that the business model is big enough to
ALSOinclude some "space" that doesn't remind users of either a bar/pub with a sticky floor or the back of a middle-school bus.
I really shouldn't be dwelling sooo much on the negatives (poor salesmanship). But, I do want to be emphatic about my hope/request.
In this way, the spirit of the forum would be maintained without the stupid intrusions (on discord) that actually occupy 99% of all conversations and channels.
On the other hand, I notice that that type of server will probably not be overcrowded as one would expect, because actually most of the members of this forum, and especially the other players, do not feel like engaging in serious discussions.
